So for the past few months we have been removing many nets from the dive site THE Truck Stop.

Meters and meters of ghosts nets have been removed.  On the last dive we zip tied alot of the nets so that they could no longer catch any fish.

Now we want to remove them.

So if your keen please let me know and come and have a great 2 dives and make the dive site safer for the fish and us divers

For 2016 Earth Day, we are cleaning up under the Pier at the Tugboat Dive Site. An area very popular with the local fisherman, which unfortunately has led to a great build-up of old fishing line, fish cans and beer bottles amongst other unwanted debris. Dry volunteers always welcome to help clean up the beach / land in the area :)

If the answer is yes, then Adopt A Dive Site™ might be for you.
