The Ocean Institute and three local diving organizations are pulling out all the stops to celebrate the first-ever International Scuba Day on August 6, 2023, by holding a "Clean the Reef" event that will meet up at the Native Plant Garden behind the Ocean Institute.
The cleanup will take place from 11am to 2pm at the Marine Protected Area (MPA) behind the Ocean Institute. As many as 60 to 80 diving afficionados are expected to dive deep to snag trash and discarded fishing lines.
Participants should arrive and gear up prior to 11am. Vendor booths will be set up in the institute’s Native Plant Garden. Sign-ups will take place at the Lost Winds booth, where each participant will receive a raffle ticket. Only those participating in the reef cleanup are eligible for the raffle, which will begin between 2pm and 2:30pm.
Raffle prizes include diving gear, a getaway to a dive resort, or a group dive at your local dive shop. In addition to vendors, members from the OC Freedivers and North County Depthfinders will participate.
For additional information, contact the Ocean Institute at (949) 496-2274 or visit the website.
