This past Saturday, June 4th, 2022, we held our monthly cleanup dive at Point Panic in Honolulu, Hawaii. It was a beautiful sunny Saturday morning with near perfect dive conditions. Visibility was great and there was minimal wave action. It was so good, some of our volunteers decided to make it a 3-tank dive day! Like last month, we didn’t have to venture far from our entry point to fill our bags. The recent large waves and strong surges uncovered trash that has been buried for years and brought in new trash too.
During this cleanup, the 13 divers were able to remove a total of 187 pounds of garbage from the ocean! Some notable items removed were a fishing trap, a fork and spoon, compact makeup, a hat, 2 pairs of sunglasses, several items of clothing, metal pipes, lots of glass bottles, various plastics, aluminum cans, parts of fishing poles, 29 pounds of lead weight and lots of fishing line and hooks.
Mahalo to all of the divers who helped out at the cleanup! We appreciate your enthusiasm and dedication to preserving our oceans. We hope you join us at our next cleanup on July 16th to celebrate Women’s Dive Day!
