The Dive Festival is hosted for the first time where the tourist really enjoys under the water by having the swimming, sun-soaking and the diving in the silent sea. Barbados is an eastern Caribbean Island popular for the fantastic sea beaches, British architecture, adventure sports and the nightlife. It has a UNESCO-listed capital city lined with beautiful gardens and the wild surfing of the lonely eastern coast.
But the recently finished, Dive Festival made the beaches of Barbados untidy. So Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association and the Barbados Dive Operators Association (BDOA) in partnership with the Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. (BTMI) and the Tourism Development Corporation (TDC) are removing the garbage from the beaches.
Barbados Dive Operators Association and Barbados Blue Water Sports have collaborated to put on a beach cleanup programme. This results in a significant amount of removal of garbage from the reefs just off Carlisle Bay. BHTA also pleaded the citizens to stop littering at the sea to save the aquatic lives.
Many of diving organisations are trying to educate the children and the local resident to make the beach clean. For this untidiness, there is an increase in pollution, which leads to the unhygienic atmosphere and the end of the marine life.
The aim to host in Dive Festival is to protect the environment and to create more marine parks in Barbados. Now, Barbados is open for diving and snorkelling. There are many world-class dive sites and the dive sector, which continues to grow.
