Together, we're battling back against ocean trash and showing the world what's found beneath the waves. Explore the map to find the types and amounts of debris items divers are reporting from more than 60 countries and help make change.
The Dive Against Debris on Saturday 22nd August at Stuart Cove's Dive Bahamas was a huge success! We had 27 volunteers come along and had perfect Caribbean weather; Sunny and calm. The divers brought up a variety of debris including fish traps and rope. Fishing line was the most frequent piece of trash that was brought up, 83 pieces in total! The combined weight of all the trash was around 45 lbs.
After the dive the atmosphere was jovial, people chatted and joked, lots of jumping into the ocean and having fun! The whole boat had a great time.
On May 28th 2015 at Poni Divers Brunei we ran our first ever Dive Against Debris Specialty Course!
The dives were led by PADI Master Instructor Johnny Hayward with assistance from PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor Selina Tang.
In total we had 4 student divers take the course: Dave Mitchell, Kieran White & Andrew Mead who are all working towards their PADI Master Scuba Diver Certification, and Colin Mead who is already certified as PADI Divemaster.
