The Dive Guys annual “Educate to Eliminate” clean-up is back on! We will again be diving under the wharf and picking up the rubbish. We will also be scrambling under the breakwater picking up the wind-blown rubbish. The event is designed to show people not only the cool life (fish, crabs and octopuses) under the wharf, but we will also give ideas of how to minimise the impact of rubbish in this vibrant ecosystem.

We will be looking for all sorts of volunteers to help out, so if you would like to be involved contact Steve at info@thediveguys.co.nz, or find The Dive Guys on Facebook. This event is open to anyone who wants to come down and have a look!

The timings are:

0930 -1000 - Divers arrive at Taranaki Wharf cut-outs drop off gear
1030 - welcome and safety brief, start getting in the water.
1115 - all divers/walkers to be in the water or on the rocks
1215 - all kayakers and walkers out of the water kayaks returned to Fergs Kayaks
1230 - everyone out of the water and cleaned up for group photo
1300 - after match at Macs Brewbar

Big thanks in advance to Fergs kayaks, NZ Fire Service, Wellington City Council, Wellington Waterfront Ltd, The Island Bay Marine Education centre and of course our regular clean-up diver Mayor Celia Wade-Brown.

We would love to get record numbers to this years event (more than 40) so make sure you tell divers, non-divers, kayakers to keep the 24th of November free!
