12th Annual Southeast Florida Reef Cleanup

Join us on this annual trip with the dream team! We will conduct one dive against debris + one coral restoration dive with our friends at Rescue a Reef! Come show your love for the world's third largest barrier reef!

** MUST register and pre-pay through the dive shop in order to participate. Registration information below. **

We’re joining forces with the Deco Divers team and University of Miami’s Rescue a Reef to host a scuba trip with a purpose – removing marine debris from the reef! We will meet at 8:00 AM to sign waivers and retrieve rental gear. DFO and RAR will do introductions — our team will speak about the harmful impacts of marine debris and plastic pollution, and then go over how to safely conduct a scuba cleanup. RAR will then walk us through how to do coral restoration! After the briefings, we will head offshore to 2 sites on Florida’s Coral Reef to scuba dive and pick up any marine debris and trash that we find. After each dive, we will collect marine debris data to submit to PADI Project AWARE and Southeast Florida Action Network (SEAFAN) for future use by educators, researchers, and policy-makers.

You must have your open-water diver certification and a recommended minimum of 10 logged dives in order to participate.
Debris Free Oceans will provide gloves, dive shears, and mesh bags. The $20 reservation comes with tanks and weights from Deco Divers, and additional scuba gear is available for rent from the dive shop. It will initially say $115; just add the code below and the discounted fee will be displayed.
Please note that this is not a guided dive- if you would like a dive professional to lead you or your group, indicate this when you register for the trip.
