Join us for a DIVE AGAINST DEBRIS!
Sponsored by the Underwater Adventures Dive Center Environmental Club
In support of PADI Aware Week, the UADC Environmental Club will be diving against debris! We will have a pre-dive discussion about pollution in our waterways and will then conduct an underwater clean-up in the back bay section of Shark River. This event is open to divers and non-divers, however only certified divers may participate in scuba diving activities. UADC is offering a 15% discount on gear rentals and purchases for this event. In addition to your standard scuba gear, required items for this dive include: gloves, a knife/cutting tool, mesh bag, and underwater slate/pencil.
