Underwater Cleanup with Dive Friends Bonaire
April 21 @ 9:30 am - 7:00 pm AST
The event begins with an orientation.
Check-in for volunteers will begin at 9:45 AM, with a briefing for all volunteers at 10:00 AM in front of the Bonaire Sailing School. Please don’t forget your certification cards (if you don’t already have them on file with Dive Friends Bonaire). We’ll be cleaning up along the harborfront, stretching from Bonaire Sailing School to Yellow Submarine. This area receives a lot of foot and boat traffic, trash and fishing line is abundant along this stretch. Please make sure to have your BMP tags along with you, as is required.
What to collect while diving.
We’ll be collecting as much fishing line as possible, so please bring along your dive knife or shears. Non-divers are also needed to help with counting and logging the items removed from the water for PADI Project AWARE Dive Against Debris. The counting and logging will be conducted at Yellow Submarine after the dive.
At 6:00 PM, Dive Friends will host a potluck BBQ for our volunteers at their Hamlet Oasis location. It’s a potluck, so please bring a snack, side-dish or dessert to share and Dive Friends will provide the main course and one beverage.
