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.

As part of our commitment to a clean environment and Project Awares September 'Dive Against Debris' month, we took a team of our Divemasters in training, Divemasters and Instructors to a local beach area on Utila on Monday 29th September for a clean up.
