Become a
Sea Star

Do a heroic deed for our beloved sea, have fun, and win valuable prizes!

Immerse yourself wholeheartedly in the activity of recreational diving with the useful goal of cleaning the seabed, and this summer become a sea star of Tar-Vabriga!

Post pictures on your social profiles with #seastarhero and encourage others to become a SeaStar Hero in this deeply important mission.

About the project

SeaStar Hero by DiveOut is a fun outdoor activity that makes Tar-Vabriga a unique destination for an active family vacation. We bring objects that don’t belong there out of the sea and thus do a good deed for our planet, and by participating in this activity, you show how caring for nature can be fun and accessible to everyone.

We offer you the opportunity to get to know Tar-Vabriga and its underwater in a completely new way – you can do good deeds, win prizes and become a famous SeaStar Hero, an honorary member of our community.

We encourage you to enjoy diving and offer you equipment to collect the waste discovered during this exciting activity!

We are looking for heroes that everyone in Tar-Vabriga will admire and nature will love!

If you participate:

  • You care about the preservation of our one and only sea.
  • You are doing something good for yourself because swimming and diving keep you FIT.
  • You are having a great time.
  • You win valuable prizes and become an honorary member of our community.

How to become
a SeaStar Hero?

Your ability to swim and dive is important, and it is certainly good to have your mask, snorkel and fins at hand. To begin with, you need to contact the person in charge and announce your participation in the SeaStar Hero by DiveOut activity. If he/she is away, do not take action because the responsible person will provide you with additional equipment for removing marine debris (net and protective gloves).

Take a deep breath in and go for it!

Good for you at the
end of the adventure

This is the deal: you contribute positively to the environment and nature is grateful to you, which is the most important thing, but in addition we reward you!


Every hero, including you, who returns the equipment and brings the surfaced waste to the person in charge of safety on the beaches, wins a badge. That will be proof of your courage and big heart!

Badge Badge


If you try even harder, and collect a larger amount of waste from the sea, you win the incredible prestigious title of SeaStar Hero and a t-shirt that will grant you a number of benefits for 1 day. The T-shirt will contain the date in the next 14 days for which these benefits are valid. Don’t forget to remind the person who gives you the T-shirt to enter the date and wear it when you go to town! This is how you’ll enjoy the whole day as a SeaStar Hero, the whole Tar-Vabriga will notice you, cheer you on, and compete to see who will host and surprise you better!

Prizes are valid until project supplies last! That’s why if you or your family member won a shirt this season, leave the opportunity for others to do the same. Thank you!

Put on a SeaStar Hero t-shirt with the date on it and get various benefits from our partners!

Rules of safe diving

Before diving, be sure to contact the person in charge, carefully read and follow the safety tips. You know how it works, if you want to have a good time, you have to take the rules seriously.

And here are a couple of key ones:
  • Dive only in the marked zone.
  • Dive as long as you are physically comfortable, but never more than 2 hours.
  • Apply sun protection cream or clothing.
  • Do not remove heavy or hazardous waste on your own.
  • Do not touch anything marine - we only accept waste from the sea.
  • If you are not yet 18 years old, you must be accompanied by a guardian.

other rules in detail here
