Blue Mango Dive Center

Blue Mango Dive Center

World’s first artificial reef using clay!
In its efforts to promote marine conservation, the Rotary Club of Boracay in partnership with Rotarian Finn Ronne from Campbell River Daybreak Rotary Club (Canada), the Boracay Association of Scuba Diving Schools (BASS) and the Blue Mango Dive Center take part in the deployment of Artificial Reef Pots around Boracay Island. Dustin Pratt, the dive center's general manager and dive master documents the deployment of the clay reef pots...


Crown of Thorns Collection
We are collecting the invasive and destructive species Acanthaster planci from Boracays dive sites. This species of starfish eats the living tissue of the outside of hard coral reefs. They are believed to out break in numbers due to the lack of their natural predator the triton trumpet which is a highly valuable shell species. Also nutrient runoff from land due to human activity is also believed by scientist to somehow affect their annual population explosions.
