We're super excited to partner again with S.T.A.R.(Sea Turtle Assistance and Rescue) for the Second Annual Protect Our Pier: Land & Underwater Clean Up!!! We are inviting all Certified Divers, and members of the community to join us for this land & underwater clean-up at the Frederiksted Pier and surrounding areas. The pier has been closed to fishermen and cruise ships during the pandemic and consequently, the underwater landscape is actually looking much cleaner than we have seen it in years. We do plan to have a limited number of scuba divers in the water this year, however, the majority of our focus will be on the land surrounding the pier including the rocks along the shoreline stretching from the south side near The Fred all the way north of Fort Frederik. With wind and tide changes much of this debris on the rocks, in the park, and even on Strand St. eventually makes it's way into the water surrounding the pier. It's our goal to be good stewards of this amazing dive site and protect the diverse population of marine life that make it their home. Please arrive to the pier at 8:30AM for a quick briefing & Task/Team Assignment. The clean-up will begin promptly at 9:00am and we hope to wrap up between 11-11:30am.
