Debris Removal Diver - $25 + $10 Project AWARE Donation

Exclusively at Academy of Scuba

We all know that trash and pollution in our oceans and local lakes is a real problem. It endangers the marine life, ruins beaches, and negatively impacts our local economies. However, everyone can play a role in improving the condition of our oceans and lakes. Non divers can help with beach clean ups and as divers we can learn to identify and safely remove debris in our underwater playgrounds.
