WDC SEA "CLEAN-UPS"

Waikawa Dive Centre has been involved in sea care from our very beginnings. Preserving the Marlborough Sounds in a natural state is important to us. We run several clean-ups per year for divers to contribute their skills and free the sea of rubbish. These projects also aim to educate people not to use the sea as an "out of sight, out of mind" dumping ground.

That's why we are now a Mission Deep Blue Dive Centre, part of a global SSI initiative to care for the ocean. YOU can help be a part by being an WDC environmental diver (OW certification required) or boat and shore rubbish collector. Pictures shown are from our 2019 Earth Day dive.

The key strategies are:

ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS
AVOID RUBBISH
DON'T TOUCH THE UNDERWATER WORLD
USE RESOURCES RESPONSIBLY
