Name: At-Sea Debris Removal with ODA Partner Island Divers Hawaii (IDH)
Date: Sunday April 17, 2022
Type: Divers only (Rescue certified)
Description: IDH hosts our ODA boat cleanup out of Hawai’i Kai. The focus is cleaning up fishing line, lead fishing weights, and other debris that collects along the sea wall. This is a very important dive as it is a popular fishing area and line left behind entangles coral and can harm wildlife.
