What a great day.

Huge Huge thanks to:  Captain Ali, Enrique, Lucy, Paul, Gavin, Chantel, William, Mark, Shaun, Leo.  Who all donated money to Project Aware and also gave up their day to remove the massive net from the wreck.

Honestly I did not think we would get it all done in one day.  But the guys worked so hard and had a lot of fun at the same time.  Lots of laughs from the moment we all got on the boat.


Oceans 5 dive resort Gili Air organizes every 2 weeks a beach and reef clean up in the Harbor of Gili Air. It is possible for everyone to join, divers and non divers.

Of course when they return any trash collected will be counted and recorded and sent in to the lovely guys at Project AWARE who do so much to help keep our oceans protected! If anyone would like to join us for diving then please let us know -
