Cleanup Day 2020

International Cleanup Day 2020

18th to 20th September 2020


Join our Dive Against Debris and Crown of Thorns cleanup dives to protect the reefs around Tioman Island

B&J always strives to keep our coral reefs healthy. Luckily there is not much rubbish to be found on Tioman’s reefs, however there’s another consistent threat called Crown of Thorns aka COT. This starfish feeds on hard corals and we’re keeping COT outbreaks in check by injecting them with vinegar using a special injection tool.
We also teach our divers the Project AWARE Dive Against Debris specialty course which leads to a certification and teaches you how to take care of the underwater world.

Join us from 18th to 20th September to learn how to control COTs and/or become a certified PADI Dive Against Debris Specialty Diver.

Itinerary for this event:

  • Friday 18th September:
    • Take a morning ferry
    • Either become a Project AWARE Dive Against Debris Specialty Diver or join our Crown of Thorns “COT” injection dive in the afternoon
  • Saturday 19th September:
    • Briefing followed by 2 COT injection dives
    • Long surface interval at Mangrove Bay on Coral Island to clean them from marine debris
    • BBQ at our B&J Beach Bar in the evening
  • Sunday 20th September
    • 2 COT morning dives (return by around 1pm)
    • Departure with an afternoon ferry
