Our first operation to one of the busiest ports of the Aegeam

We completed our activities with the amazing team of Apivita that accompanied us during 2022 on five different islands and our last stop was Heraklion, a distant, challenging and unknown destination. Nevertheless, the long journey and the zero visibility on the seabed did not stand in the way of the successful outcome of our activity.

It is another busy marina, in one of the largest ports of the Aegean, which unfortunately demonstrates the expected status: the seabed is covered with marine litter of all kinds and large objects, the detection of which is extremely difficult as the visibility of the divers was frankly zero.

Many thanks to the APIVITA team for their valuable help in all the journeys we have taken together during this year. We look forward to 2023 with more destinations.

Also, warm thanks to Blue Star Ferries for their support, to Heraklion Port Authority and the Central Port Authority of Heraklion for their cooperation.
