  • We have been doing clean up dives for almost a year now and this day we’re only able to fill 2 mesh bags with trash compared to our previous dives. And this makes us very HAPPY!!! To see that progress has been made thanks to all the people who have taking the initiative to make a change for a cleaner Bocas del Toro!!!
Thank you all for your support and we hope that soon one day we are no longer able to do clean up dives for there will no longer be any trash underwater.
One Day :)
