Vance's logged dive #1081
Froglegs participated in ADGAS’ Abu Dhabi Islands Clean Up Campaign on Saturday 17th September 2011. We joined EDA and Al Mahara Dive Center in their dive against debris in the waters around Abu Dhabi International Marine Sports Club marina area and Lulu Island.
This was the froglegs team: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FrogLegsScubaClub/:Top cover: Anna Elwood

Bobbi and I dived together in fairly murky water underneath the boats and against the jetty forming the marina. Depth was about 3 meters and time 30-40 min, including surfacing often to resolve buddy separations. There were a few small fish there that liked to nip the top of my head when I blew bubbles. We also found a pair of miniature cuttlefish each the size of a child's fist. Like cuttlefish everywhere, they ranged cute to iridescent. We surfaced three bags full of discarded garbage. Actually for a harbor, it wasn't that filthy. Under the boats we found broken carapaces of dozens of crabs, the remnants of someone's meal(s).
