Reply To: Pollution in our waters


I recently spent a day diving at Long Ke Tsai – the seabed is absolutely littered with plastic bags – I think the place has more bags than my local Park N Shop. I spent the best part of four dives shoving as much stuff as I could into my BC pockets and I hardly made a dent on the amount of rubbish down there.

It is a real shame that a place which is so beautiful above water is so messy underneath. I’ve dived all over HK and this is the worst I have seen – I have no idea if this is just detritus blown into the bay before sinking (or hitting the beach which was pretty messy too) or whether, as I suspect, it is down to the multitude of pleasure boats and junks that visit the place on any given weekend. Either way, not nice and a real shame.
