No water. No life. No blue. No green.

Aqua Vida is a water-loving, socially-responsible and conscious community. Keeping our local waterways clean and healthy is our mission - and we are just getting started. We're mobilizing our community to make a change and make some waves.

Ocean Cleanups

 

We have big goals and we'd love to see you at our next cleanup

Join us for a donation-based Stand Up Paddle Boarding Cleanup in collaboration with United By Blue and Clean Ocean Action.

At Aqua Vida, we believe in the power of community by joining forces to affect real change. A cornerstone of what we stand for is Seva (selfless service), with our focus on the environment and the health of our waterways. Learn more about Seva here.

With 11 cleanups and over 2,000 lbs of trash removed from Philadelphia’s waterways, our cleanup initiative is well on its way to help make our rivers whole once again.

Seva Nights are special two-hour events running Friday evenings from 6-8pm all summer long. Seva Nights include:

  • A 60-minute intro to Stand Up Paddle Boarding and a SUP Cleanup of the harbor
  • A 60-minute after-party, with opportunities to mingle at the waterfront after class aboard our 30' sailboat or any of the park's awesome public spaces, including the floating barge, beer garden, roller skating rink and lodges
  • A fun event, rewarding to mind body and soul
