Our Ballast Point Pier Dive Cleanup to support Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful's "Great American Cleanup" event started a little rocky; as we had two storm fronts that were coming through our area. Luckily for us, our cleanup was right in between the two fronts. Parks Services were gracious enough to close the pier early for us during the dive cleanup, and our local dive shop (World of Water) provided tanks and equipment for the dive. I had may available to the divers the option to come out earlier than planned, in the effort to beat the weather. Bec
This event marked the second year Ocean Elements Sdn Bhd - PADI Dive Centre had organised a beach cleanup event in Dungun, Terengganu, Malaysia. We would like to thank Majlis Perbandaran Dungun (Dungun City Council) for their support and assistance which made this year’s event another success. This year’s event is wholly sponsored by Bank Islam Malaysia Berhad (Bank Islam) as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives.
Thanks to our 6 volunteers on the 18th of April, jointly with the Dahab Festival's conservation day, we did our first dive for debris dive in Bannerfish Bay, right in front of H2O Divers Dahab.
We also had a beach clean up support team that did a real big job of filling 3 whole bags of debris.
We loved organising this dive for debris to keep people aware that we all contribute to debris that end up in the sea, so once in a while just taking them out is not a big deal. And they all loved it too!

Our Fin-a-thon was a huge success. Our fin-a-thoners ranged from 4 years old to 60. We had one swimmer who did the back stroke for nearly 3 hours covering nearly 2 miles in the water. Two other divers spent the full three hours on scuba on the bottom of the pool (basically watching the swimmers go by). Our mascot “Bruce” who greets everyone in our shop was the driving force behind the whole event :)
