Diving cleanup off Seacrest

April 13, 2024 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
1600 Harbor SW
West Seattle

Seattle Dive Tours is, again, partnering with SR3 and Marination Ma Kai and organizing a Seacrest Pier underwater clean up. This area is generally off limits to divers and Seattle Dive Tours has coordinated with Seattle Parks and Recreation and the West Seattle Water Taxi to perform the clean up during a Water Taxi no-service weekend. Seattle Dive Tours is again partnering with SR3 and Marination Ma Kai.

Volunteer on Seattle Dive Tours – Special Event Calendar.

Divers will enter the water in two shifts to remove marine debris lurking below the surface of the Salish Sea. Additional volunteers on the dock will sort through the debris and document the weight and types of debris found. This data will be uploaded to larger, worldwide datasets in order to reveal the greatest threats around the world.

Last year, over 300 pounds of debris was removed in this single-day cleanup! This included a TV, Lime Scooter, a fertilizer wheelbarrow, over 300 fishing lures, heaps of fishing line and hundreds of single use plastic bottles, cans and bags.

These events could not have been done without the partnership of our hardy volunteers, Seattle Parks and Recreation, and the King County Water Taxi (Department of Metro Transportation, Marine Division). We hope to continue this as a yearly event to keep our ocean as clean as possible.
