Clean Up Australia Day is a chance for us to give back and help make our environment just a little bit better. Join Sue and the crew for a clean up under Woy Woy Wharf on Sunday 3rd March. Meet at the wharf at 10.00am and be ready to get in the water at 10.45.... that's when the ferry departs. There may be media there so you might be on the tele too! Divers MUST wear gloves as there are Fortesques and other ouchy things around. Some of the items that we have retrieved in the past are shopping trollies, park benches, bikes.... big stuff and maybe the occasional valuable item…! Everyone who dives to clean up will get a FREE air fill as a thank you from us ☺️🙏 Please call the shop to book in on 4367 5512 ... See more
