Capt. Hook's Marathon Clean-Up Dive Trip

Saturday, July 27, 2024

Marathon is known for its diversified diving, abundant marine life and some beautiful dive sites and we want to keep it that way. Dive into a world of underwater beauty and proactive conservation with Captain Hook's exclusive Goal: Clean Seas Marathon Dive Initiative. Nestled within the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, Marathon reefs are renowned for its vibrant coral formations and diverse marine life. This initiative is a call to action for all ocean enthusiasts to contribute to preserving this marine paradise.

Join our expert dive team for a guided clean-up dive where you'll learn about the delicate reef ecosystem while actively removing marine debris that threatens this underwater haven. Our comprehensive dive includes pre-dive video on safe debris removal techniques and post-dive discussions about the impact of your efforts on the reef's health.

Whether you're an advanced diver that has never done a clean-up or a seasoned clean-up pro, your participation will directly enhance the reef's resilience and beauty and you will have participate in a true "Make A Difference"event. All collected debris is disposed of properly, contributing to ongoing scientific research and efforts to formulate better waste management policies.
