Waterman’s Week Bali 2016- Clean Oceans/FinathonWinner !
Oceans Finathon, is an event that we hope will grow and become more and more popular each year. Over the course of Water¬man’s Week Bali, dive centers from across Bali have been competing against each other to clean up local beaches and reefs and prove themselves as thoughtful , conscientious businesses.
The winner of the competition is the center that managed to pick up and separate the most trash. The results were as follows: 3 rd Place- Nico Dives Cool; 2 nd Place- Joe’s Gone Diving; 1 st Place- Easy Divers Amazingly, our winners Easy Divers made the trip all the way from the North coast of Bali just to attend our awards ceremony and receive their prizes. All of us here at ROLE Foundation got the opportunity to meet and speak with the Easy Divers team, headed up by Dive Master Dusan Repic, and we found them all to be incredibly passionate, inspirational people. As a reward for all of their hard work, Easy Divers were presented with a family-size water filter provided by our friends at Nazava, as well as other great prizes kindly donated by The Blue Azure, BaliAquaand the Marine Mega Fauna Foundation. Looking to next year’s Waterman’s Week, we look forward to working again with Easy Divers, Joe’s Gone Diving, Nico Dives Cool and of course many of the other dedicated dive centers who gave up their valuable time to compete in the Clean Oceans Finathon.
