Coastal Cleaners have just launched a new initiative in association with Tortuga Dive school Vera Playa. Based on the idea that we protect the things we love, a young (17-25) local person will be selected and trained to PADI Open water standard. Allowing them to experience the underwater world and take knowledge about it and how we can better protect it back to their community. Ideally a young teacher or someone from the fishing or farming community the selected applicant will have outlined how they intend to spread awareness locally. Whether that be through art, music, talks, education, community work, eco projects etc.
To help raise the funds CCA founder Sue Parmenter-Phillips has committed to 365 days without any alcohol! To sponsor Sue on her quest please visit
Taster dives and dives for those qualified are also being arranged. Please get in touch via the Facebook page or email firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved or find out more.
