LAUDERDALE-BY-THE-SEA --  80 volunteers consisting of local divers, snorkelers, surfers, students and beach-goers participated in the first annual Harvest Pier Clean-Up to help support the Project AWARE movement for a trash free ocean and environment. Volunteers above and below water collected over 300 pounds of trash!  The 2 hour event was held on Saturday, November 8, 2014​ on and below Anglin’s Fishing Pier​ in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea and was organized by ‘SOS Ocean Clean-Up’ and ‘Gold Coast Scuba.’


Saturday's Dive Against Debris Project Aware specialty course and event were a resounding success!  The divers hauled almost 40 lbs of debris from Lake Millbrook!

Who would have thought there was an empty and rusting helium tank in our local diving site?  Blech.  Our divers also brought up the kitchen sink...literally -- or at least a bathroom sink.  

We had the biggest turn out ever for a Dive Against Debris on Saturday 27th September with 34 Divers helping out.  We had to take out two boats to Palace Wall and all the divers spread out to cover as much of the area as possible.  A big thanks to Stuart Cove's Dive Bahamas for supplying the boats, gear and crew including captains Carl & Dexter and Instructors Terri, Gigi, Katie and Charlotte.
