Dive Against Debris

As ambassadors of the sea, we need to protect what we love! Any dive is a Dive Against Debris!

What is a "Dive Against Debris"

As a PADI Green Star dive centre, we run regular Dive Against Debris Dives. The goal of these dives is to remove debris from the oceans that isn’t supposed to be there. As many of our main dive sites are also active fishing jetties, the main objective is to get rid of bottles, cans, plastic bags and especially fishing line, but we also remove items that are dumped from the jetties, ranging from tires to computer monitors!

We dive our favourite dive spots as well as more unusual spots, such as the Port Gawler mangroves, Port River or the metropolitan jetties – every dive is an adventure!

These events are for the whole family, as the kids can do a beach clean up, while the adults dive (or if they’re old enough and certified, the kids can dive as well of course!).

Usually the local council of the dive location will provide extra bins

  • During these events it’s important to protect yourself and your buddy. Always carry a dive knife on the dives and wear thick gloves. It’s easy to get distracted during a dive with a mission, so always make sure you stay close to and keep an eye on your dive buddy.

  • If you don’t have a buddy that’s no problem at all. The event leader on the day will buddy you up with one of the other divers or you can always dive with the event leader as a buddy of course!

  • Always make sure the trash you collect is relatively new. Once a bottle is overgrown and has become part of the ecosystem, it’s better to leave it on the sea bottom. It’s easy to spot when an octopus has made it its home, but much smaller organisms may have also moved in (or on) that are much harder to spot.

  • Once you have collected the trash, don’t dump it in the bins right away. Some items may be recyclable, but more importantly, we record exactly what we have collected and upload this data to the Project Aware database, so the data can be used for scientific research and to support the development and implementation of policies around the world to improve waste management.
