Dear Divers and sea lovers,


Thank you for your commitment to the marine environment again and signing up for the Inter-Continental Hotel Group underwater and clean up with Al Mahara Diving Center and Emirates Diving Association and Environment Agency of Abu Dhabi this coming Saturday 8th October.

We are still trying to highlight the negative impact of marine debris worldwide by participating and building awareness and making a difference. Again thank you for your commitment. In September, we pulled up 1500kg of trash in just over 1.5hours by both divers and beach volunteers during our last clean up. And so our journey is to continue to dive against the debris. Safe diving everyone!
