Underwater Cleanup with Dive Friends Bonaire
October 20 @ 9:45 am - 7:00 pm AST
The event begins with an orientation.
Check-in for volunteers will begin at 9:30 AM, with a briefing for all volunteers at 10:00 AM at the Parke Tului Domacasse (Playground on the oceanfront promenade). Please don’t forget your certification cards (if you don’t already have them on file with Dive Friends Bonaire). Please make sure to have your BMP tags along with you, as is required. The cleanup will focus on the stretch of harbor-front from Karel’s Beach Bar to the Fisherman’s Pier. It is hoped to tackle any trash left from the Regatta events.
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 the harbor-front 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.
