COASTAL CLEANUPS:  

*Thank you for helping us remove more than 4139kg of ocean litter from our coastline!

WE HAVE BEEN CLEANING THE BEACHES OF SANTA MARIA  AS A FAMILY SINCE 2018. IN 2020, WE DECIDED TO ORGANIZE THESE CLEANUPS INTO SOMETHING MORE OFFICIAL TO INCLUDE BOTH THE LOCAL COMMUNITY & THOSE VISITING OUR ISLAND. WE NOW HOST THESE COASTAL CLEANUPS MONTHLY. SOMETIMES WE ORGANIZE BY BOAT, BUT MORE OFTEN FROM LAND, WHERE WE ENJOY THE COMPANY OF FRIENDS & THE NATURAL BEAUTY OF OUR ISLAND WHILE KEEPING OUR COASTLINE CLEAN.

OUR CLEANUP EVENTS ARE FUN FILLED- EVERYONE LEAVES WITH GOOD VIBES. WE USUALLY HAVE AN INTERNATIONAL CREW OF VOLUNTEERS, SO JOINING US IS A GREAT WAY TO MEET NEW PEOPLE AND BECAUSE OUR EVENTS ARE FAMILY FRIENDLY, WE ALL GET TO ENJOY RAISING AWARENESS & EMPOWERING THE NEXT GENERATION TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE! 🐬💛🌊

WE ARE LUCKY TO HAVE SOME AMAZING PARTNERS WHO HELP TO MAKE OUR EVENTS POSSIBLE - DONATING THEIR TIME, BOATS, SNORKEL GEAR, WETSUITS & SURF BOARDS OR FREE FOOD & DRINKS FOR OUR VOLUNTEERS. SOME OF OUR PARTNERS FROM 2021 INCLUDE: MONK SURF, CLUBE NAVAL, WAHOO DIVING, BAR ANJOS, OS AMIGOS DO MAIA, & PONTA NEGRA RESTAURANTE.  WE ARE ALSO A PROUD MEMBER OF THE OCEANO AZUL FOUNDATION AND SUPPORT THE BLUE AZORES INITIATIVE TO PROTECT OUR OCEAN.
