In light of Hurricane Nate recently affecting the Gulf coast the City of Gulf Shores has elected to cancel Operation: “Dive Against Debris” on Saturday, October 21.
This underwater conservation effort and beach cleanup was due to take place at the Gulf State Park Fishing & Education Pier. The pier sustained damage, but the extent is still unknown at this time. Potentially hazardous conditions are present in the Gulf waters.
“For the safety of the divers and all those participating we are cancelling the event,” said Sergeant Paul Maliska. “I want to thank the generous sponsors, volunteers and all those involved in coordinating this event.”
Information regarding next year’s event will be announced as it becomes available.
