During the following months of 2013 we will be holding many different dive for debris dives. All dives will collect as much rubbish as we can and then record all data. This will be uploaded to Project AWARE>
Join us on our quest for debris in the the Gulf of Mexico. Open water certification required. Dive sites are typically 40-60 feet (to be determined on the day of the trip based upon conditions, divers, etc.). Spearfishing and the collection of living creatures is not permitted on the charter. The dive trip cost does not include tank rental or other equipment rental, and tipping the Captain and/or Dive Master. Bottled water and some snacks (pretzels, chips, etc.) are included, cooler use also included.
Dive with Options is very enthusiastic about promoting S.A.F.E and having clean diving, swimming, surfing and snorkeling experiences! This area is a nursery for Blue Spotted Rays, and numourios fish species.
Our 2012 commitment is to bring back at least one piece of trash with every dive. Our overall goal is keep our oceans, rivers, bays, lakes, etc. debris free in Richards Bay.
Our first Dive for Debris and Beach Clean Up for 2011 is taking place on Sunday 28thAugust at Trefor Pier in Wales. We will be conducting dives under the pier to collect rubbish and litter to not only clean up the area but also to collect the data. All volunteers will also be asked to help with a shore line clean up for the same purposes.
