In the spirit of giving back to the ocean that provides us with so much beauty and recreation, we hosted our monthly cleanup dive, a special holiday edition, in collaboration with Trident Adventures.
Saturday, December 16th, 2023, was a sunny day that seemed to sparkle with the festive spirit. Twenty-six dedicated volunteers gathered at Point Panic Beach Park, eager to make a positive impact on the underwater world. The collaboration with Trident Adventures added an extra layer of excitement and expertise to the event, enhancing the overall experience for both volunteers and the environment.
What set this cleanup dive apart was the holiday twist. As volunteers geared up to remove trash from the ocean floor, the check-in table turned into a festive hub. Sweet treats were shared among participants, adding a delightful touch to the cleanup efforts. To everyone’s surprise, Santa himself made a special appearance, spreading cheer and encouraging the volunteers in their mission.
The cleanup dive kicked off with a quick briefing, emphasizing safety and the importance of preserving the marine ecosystem. Divers, ranging from beginners to seasoned enthusiasts, eagerly descended into the turquoise waters, equipped with bags and tools to collect debris that has found its way into the ocean.
