12. 15 Miles of Plastic Waste
The worst rubbish the dive team found was about 15 miles off the coast of Roatan heading towards the Cayos Cochinos Marine Reserve. The team had to travel miles and miles off the coast in order to make it to clean, trash free, and open water.“We were on a dive trip to a set of islands that don’t quite break the ocean surface. They are one of the most pristine dive sites in this part of the Caribbean,” Ms. Power recalled. But even when the trash isn’t physically present, that doesn’t mean the side effects of human waste are not present as well.
