(Wednesday, 11th of October, 2017)

We would like to thank Dubai Police - Marine Rescue division for inviting us to the Marine Enviromental Intiative (Let our marine environment be clean) yesterday, at 8:00am Dubai Time. The intiative took place at "Al Hamriyah" port and included diving volunteers from around the country who were given the task of cleaning up the port. The volunteers successfully cleaned up the bottom of the port and extracted a lot of trash. Prizes and certificates were given out to all the volunteers who attended the initiative. We as "naw" would love these initiatives to continue in the future, and we have high hopes that they will continue still, with the good will of the people and organizers who helped make this happen. We also would like to give a special thanks to Lieutenant Colonel Ali Abdullah Al Qusaib Al Naqbi, first for organizing the initiative and second for welcoming us to join. 🇦🇪

Naw in Mauritius and South Africa

A successful trip to Mauritius showed us a new perspective of this beautiful island, with it's diverse underwater wildlife, and unique culture, Mauritus has left us wanting more. Our activities consisted of Freediving, cultural tours, waterfall visits, and more.

After Muaritius we ventured to South Africa landing in Johannesburg Airport for a connecting flight to George, from George we drove to Knysna and explored our way there, little that we knew they had a recent wild land fire on June 7, 2017 which ended at around June 28, 2017. From Knysna we went on to Gondwana game reserve, then ended our trip by visiting Cape Town for some cape fur seal underwater encounters. Follow us on our social media channels to find out more. 

P.S. We visited Mauritius twice on this trip, once before going to South Africa, and the second time was after our visit to South Africa.

Naw in Hurawalhi Resort at the Lhaviyani Atoll in the Maldives

Our trip to Hurawalhi located on the "Lhaviyani Atoll" at the Maldives was a successful trip of discovering a virgin island which had recently been open to the public. We stayed there from January 8, 2017 till January 12, 2017. Free diving the whole island was a difficult task due to strong currents, but we did it. It took us almost 3 - 4 hours to document the surroundings and some of the diverse species living there. At the time we were there the sea was filled with a seasonal plankton bloom which disturbed the visibility but helped us with encountering lots of species who feed on them.

Naw at Middle East Extreme Sports Expo 2015

Naw was proud to participate in the Middle East Extreme Sports Expo 2015. We have rooted our presence as environmentalists and shown the world what we are capable of. Free Divers & Spear-fishermen were thrilled to find us amongst them, they too supported our cause and vision. We are also happy to mention that our booth was amongst the best in terms of design and attraction.
