This month marks the 13th Dive Against Debris we have made in our beloved adopted dive site, Kontiki Marina. We started the day with the clean up dive at 10AM. The water was a good 28.3 degrees and we went down to a maximum of 13.7m. We surfaced 47 minutes later and 15 lb heavier. Crazy talk during what feels like a very short surface interval and then we made just a chill dive at around 12:15PM.
Yesterday was a fun day for us as we made new friends, Michelle and Mike. We were also joined by fresh-from-open-water-certification Abi and fresh-from-advance-open-water-certification Andrew. And as usual, we were joined by our ever supportive patrons, Tanya, Karl and Paula. This month’s program was backed by the support team made up of James, Hilbert, Darwin and yours truly, Kae.
