- My Summary
Blue Planet is a different kind of scuba diving organization -- aimed at providing the best education and travel experiences to divers in Washington, DC while harnessing the excitement and adventure of scuba to help protect our fragile oceans.
Blue Planet works closely with environmental organizations and local communities to foster sustainability. We recognize that our oceans are being ravaged by pollution, coastal development, over-fishing and global warming and believe that active, informed divers can help restore the health of our planet’s ocean.
We train all of our divers to avoid negatively impacting marine ecosystems through maintaining proper buoyancy control and respecting underwater organisms and their homes.
We encourage our divers to get involved in protecting the oceans through activities like clean-ups, implementing lifestyle changes, and advocating for better local, national and international policies.
We strive to provide dive experiences that enhance visitor awareness, appreciation and understanding of the local aquatic environment while supporting local economies, cultures and traditions. We also offset the carbon emissions from our travel to dive destinations with TerraPass.
