The Ocean Friendly pledge is a commitment to help protect the aquatic environment (oceans, lakes, caves, etc.) and its inhabitants by providing an educational system that fosters an ethos of being “Ocean Friendly.” Our pledge is a declaration that compels us to be aware of the delicate nature of the environment, to consider our actions and their impact on the environment, and ultimately lead the way with our instructors to teach and provide classes that make divers “Ocean Friendly.” We aim to convert our values of protecting the environment into direct actions, and to make clear who we are, what we champion, and to make the diving community directly responsible for their impact on the environment.
