Roddenberry Adventures in partnership with NAUI Green Diver Initiative, and sponsored by TUSA, Blue Steel Scuba, Intova, Tovatec, and Vivid-Pix present the 4th annual Trashy Diver Contest. We are challenging all outdoor enthusiasts, scuba divers, beach combers, and water lovers alike to collect trash from any aquatic environment, above or below the water, and photograph the results. You could win one of our great monthly prizes or amazing Grand Prizes, including a free scuba gear set!
The Trashy Diver Contest raises awareness about the issue of pollution in our local waterways. We encourage you to be a “Trashy Diver” and help us keep our beaches, shorelines, lakes, rivers, creeks, and oceans healthy and clean for future generations to use and enjoy.
