'Diving Against Debris'. 

Hayah Reef is notoriously known for its high concerntration of human debris. We are organising and sending out a team of divers to help clean up the reef and bring it back to life. Our Ocean Turtle team will decend down to the reef for two dives clearing up as much rubbish as they possibly can. 

Hayah, meaning 'life' in arabic, has been over run by litter and garbage. As divers, we feel that it is our duty to go out and help the aquatic life to have a natural enviroment unharmed by humans.

The Debris dive is now scheduled to take place Sunday 21st February following previous postponment due to extreme weather conditions. The postponement was only for the days after the 'storm' and we will be looking to complete the dive this SUNDAY 21st FEBRUARY. So you now have a new opportunity to get involved. Contact me if you are interested and wish to sign up! idcstephen@diversdown.net

Following the success of our Dive Against Debris which was conducted in March, we figured it was about time to revisit our sites and see what might have changed.
