Coastal Clean Up
The best people to clean up underwater trash are scuba divers! As such, The Submersibles regularly supports cleanup efforts in the waters around Singapore. Together with the local government organizations and NGOs we stand united in our efforts to keep the waters and reefs healthy for future generations.
