Eco Dive will be hosting our first clean-up dive for international Clean-up month off the Grand Anse Beach in front of our dive shop on Sunday Sept 8th meeting for 1:30 pm. All divers who have been diving with us before are welcome and FREE of charge! We will be looking for any and all garbage plastics and treasures we can find off of Grand Anse and it promises to include some great sea critters at the same time. Later in the month we will follow up with a clean-up dive in our Marine Protected Area.
