We change the year, we change habits!

The new year is coming with global concern for human health, but a big event is set aside in this whole landscape. The data we have from the study of our oceans are equally worrying and are at the forefront of human needs. The ever-increasing marine pollution is directly related to the health of the inhabitants of our planet. We are at the frontline and continue, with many actions this year to preserve the marine environment for ocean sustainability.

ROV platform for marine protection in Santorini.

One of the important actions of environmental actions is inspection.

     The first part for the calibration of the pollutant loads, and the environmental conditions for the organization and planning of the following operational action is the inspection of the underwater area.

     To upgrade and improve the effectiveness of its actions, the Environmental Organization Dive In Action proceeds to the supply of an underwater remote-controlled vehicle (ROUV) a combination of augmented reality, long-range, and depth.

     This development improves the recording process with more data, increases the possibilities in the field with full coverage, dramatically reduces the time in the targeted planning of actions, optimizes the operational capacity, and provides possibilities for the evolution of sampling and analysis of observations.

Stephanolepis diaspros, 2021 Santorini observations

– We give to the public a beautiful and remarkable recording, to observe together the behavior and especially the look of the marine organism in a very close shot. Something, that can hardly be recorded at the sea bed, but with the calm approach, the patience of Stephanolepis diaspros and the valuable suggestion of the Oceanographer Zinovia Erga and the Marine Biologist Thodoros Kampouris, we succeeded in yesterday’s research at the sea bed of the Santorini Caldera.
– You can get a “taste” of the beauty of the movement of a particular marine organism, and observe the movement of the eye of the fish, looking for our place, skillfully looking but with proven fear for the escape route from our attention.

The current situation is not the status!

Huge amounts of pollutants accumulate in the seas at depths that often make it impossible to lift them. This creates a volume of materials that do not pollute only with its view and existence. It is the largest source of pollution with unpredictable effects on the environment, which does not have those comparable data, nor the studies that can estimate the extent of the damage they are causing now and will cause in the future.
Sending a distress signal, the vital water surface of the planet that covers 73% of the earth requires only one thing from humanity. Changing simple daily habits by limiting the use of plastic packaging.
– Say No in disposable plastics

Vivid blue in 2020

“Dive In Action” starts the new year with 2 new programs, based on marine environmental conservation. The structure of the programs is to raise public awareness of marine protection, with the introduction of “Envi-net 2020” and to record the first comparative results in marine observation with “Insight Sea 19/20”.

Zero Gravity

Everything is ok. A signal that means we enjoy a dive in lion face reef in caldera beach santorini
Everything is ok. A signal that means we enjoy a dive in “Lion Face” reef in Caldera Beach Santorini

It’s difficult to describe an experience if we don’t try it out first. It’s equally strange to explain anything that we can’t taste anywhere else except the bottom of the sea. Swimming and snorkeling are hobbies we do in an environment which combines the atmospheric pressure and the liquid element. But, is this enough to realize the real sense of lack of gravity? Sure not!
The benefits of diving experience are.
