Join Mermaids conservation efforts on Saturday 20th September 2014 with the International Cleanup Day). Annually our divers assist in a clean up our local beaches and reefs that we enjoy so much. This year we are focussing not for the first time of Koh Sak Island, located just off Pattaya Bay. This is the 7th year of the Mermaids International Cleanup Day and always guaranteed to be lots of fun and alongside handwork. It’s a great way to learn new and hone existing skills whilst doing something really positive for our local environment.
Transportation from Mermaids dive centre will be fully supplied as always on the morning to the pier. After the day at sea we’ll return everyone to ready for the evening event. This will be held at the Captains Corner restaurant at the Residence Garden in Jomtien. (You could even make a weekend of it and get a room there:)
We’ll be selling the Mermaids International Cleanup Day raffle tickets during the day to raise money for marine and the lucky winners will be announced at the evening event. Our fantastic sponsors give us great prizes from all sorts of dive equipment, hotel stays and top restaurant meals to a Go Pro HD Camera. Are you feeling lucky?
Meet at Mermaids Dive Center, Jomtien for registration and payment. We will provide you with a color sticker to let you know which boat you will be going on, you will also get your International Cleanup Day T Shirt to wear proudly.
The smell of bacon and egg sandwiches will fill the air as we serve breakfast prior to heading to the Bali Hai pier in Pattaya.
At the pier we’ll join our designated boat. Once on board the boatmaster will give you a full boat brief and dive teams and snorkel teams will be assigned.
On arrival at the island of Koh Sak, we will do the first dive and snorkelers will head out for reef cleaning. Head back to the boat for lunch and rest and relaxation then we will head off to the beach to clean up and get our group photo.
While the snorkelers stay on the beach to clean and snorkel the reef, divers can head back to the boats to get ready for their second dive. Once we are finished we all head back to Bali Hai Pier and back to Mermaids Dive Centre.
It’s always a fantastic and really fun day out. Let’s face it – no one really likes cleaning but when it’s fun and for a great cause – it’s a great feeling!
Make your way down to Captains Corner Restaurant at the Residence Garden to have dinner and await the evening activities and entertainment to start at approximately 5.30pm.
