Cleanup Arabia 2019

Are you ready for Cleanup Arabia 2019? You will find all the necessary info for this year's campaign here:
1. Dive spaces are limited and available only to individual EDA Members. Book as early as possible so we can assign your spots to guarantee you a place. Bookings are first come, first served. We do not take group bookings.
2. Check which day you would like to join the dives on from the info below and call Ioline on 04 393 9390 with your EDA Membership number or email her at projects@emiratesdiving.com
3. If you need to rent dive equipment, you will be able to call the dive centre yourselves once you know the dive centre you have been assigned. You will make your equipment rental payment directly with them on arrival, on the day of the event.

IMPORTANT INFO:
CLEANUP ARABIA T-SHIRTS
We have created a sustainable T-shirt brand design and only new participants to CUA 2019 will receive a T-shirt for all future Cleanup Arabia events. Participants who were part of CUA 2018, are to REUSE their T-shirts from 2018.

REUSABLE DRINKING BOTTLES:
All participants are to bring their own REUSABLE water bottles to refill at the gallon water stations as part of our sustainable responsibilities. We will not be providing small plastic water bottles.
