2013 CLEANUP SEASON INFORMATION

NEW DIVERS, CAPTAINS, HELPERS, DECK HANDS AND OTHER VOLUNTEERS
If you are new to marine debris removal, a new diver or just joining our group, there are some things you will need and need to know.  How do we do it.  Where do we do it.  What do we need.  How do we not distroy things while we are removing debris...etc. 

Training is available, if necessary the 2nd Saturday of every month for new divers.  As new divers sign up, Capt don schedules them for these classes.  They are not just walk-ins as supplies and equipment are needed.  This coming season, on January 12th is the next class at 9am prior to our next dive.  New divers are then paired with experienced divers for an on-site in-water session.
