Divers Team Up For Marine Clean-Up

July 26, 2012

Divers from across the island clubbed together at the weekend to clean up a popular swimming site. The Bermuda Sub-Aqua Club [BSAC] teamed up with Bermuda Ocean Explorers, the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences [BIOS] and Keep Bermuda Beautiful [KBB] to remove trash and debris from Clarence Cove.

Up to 18 divers from BIOS took part, joining members of BSAC and Bermuda Ocean Explorers in recovering glass bottles, pieces of pipe and two motorcycle frames from the water. Clarence Cove is a sheltered bay on the North Shore with a dock, and is also a popular cliff-jumping site.

A total 30 people attended the clean-up at Admiralty Park on Sunday, using the BSAC clubhouse as an operational base. Organizer Weldon Wade said: “Bermuda Ocean Explorers, BIOS, BSAC and KBB all came together in different ways to make this happen. A decent amount of debris was removed and everyone had a good time.”

BSAC is a charity and is part of the British Sub-Aqua Club. They run diving qualification courses and social events throughout the year. Potential new members can also check out the club social evening from 8 pm on Wednesdays at the BSAC Clubhouse, Admiralty Park, Spanish Point (pink building), or check out BSAC’s website at www.bsac.bm.
