First dive on the reef will be to help clean some of the 750 coral trees that CRF look after.

Second dive is made on the live coral reef where, depending on conditions, you will get to plant some coral. each coral plant has a registered number that you will be able to record and track progress over the years!

Each of the dives is around 45min in 30 feet of water or less.
