At 5 of June 2015 we make the first step to clean the port of Sifnos island in Greece. Its a very pretty place but nobody ever dive there or collect even one trush from the water because they didn't had the right equipments and organization to do it. Sifnos Diving Center team with the help of the local marine port, decide to protect our underwater treasure. We did a lot of work and we still have many dives to do until we clean it all. Many trash cans from tourists and tires from tracks that the locals use to tight there boats. We remove more than 20 tires and still has a lot.

Giving something back to the sea is how our guests and staff see regular clean up events.  World Ocean Day was no different, with instructor Valerii and his guests picking up the litter from Eagle Ray Bay on the 2 house reef dives.  Our heros dived for 6 kilos of debris finding mainly food and beverage packaging along Eagle Ray Bay.  However, we are pleased it was such a small amount as our instructors regularly collect rubbish during the daily dives anyway keeping the house reef spic and span!
