Two dive professionals are taking to the dusty track on two-wheelers all around Australia from August to October, 2011 for charity. Allan Nash and Tommy Soderstrom, both PADI Instructors and owners of El Galleon Dive Resort and Asia Divers in the Philippines, have hatched an action-packed fund-raising scheme supported by PADI, Project Aware and the Springboard Foundation.

This ride was designed to give Australian Dive Centres the opportunity to participate in a fundraising event to raise money for Project AWARE in a fight to stop Ocean Debris and to raise money for street children in the Philippines through the Springboard

The ride circumnavigating Australia on BMW 1200GS over 50 days – starting and ending in Sydney, will include up to eight stopovers and scuba dives, plus beach cleanups in each capital city (except Darwin) followed by a BBQ charity fundraiser. In each of these fundraisers, raffle tickets will be sold, bronze dollars donated for food and beverage, and prizes won from leading equipment manufacturers.

At every event the prizes will include at least one of all the following items:

  • Leonardo Cresssi Dive computers
  • W2 Waterproof Wetsuit  
  • 5mm Waterproof wetsuits
  • Tusa mask snorkel and fins set
  • DAN set of books
  • 1 week stay at El Galleon resort with unlimited diving with Nitrox worth A$1,100
