Operation- "Dive Against Debris"
Saturday, October 22 
7 a.m. - Gulf Place Public Beach 

On Saturday, October 22, scuba divers from across the country will participate in Operation - “Dive Against Debris.” This underwater conservation effort is the result of a unique collaboration between the City of Gulf Shores and Project AWARE. 

During this cleanup effort volunteer divers will canvas the near shore waters of the Gulf of Mexico in an effort to remove garbage and unnatural debris which can pose a significant threat to people and wildlife.

The cleanup site spans approximately 2.5 miles and runs from the 1200 block of West Beach to the 500 block of East Beach (Fire Department to Gulf State Park). Headquarter operations will be located at Gulf Place Public Beach.  All volunteers will report to headquarters for check-in and assignments at 7 a.m. 

Minors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is open water scuba certified. There is no cost associated with participating. A liability waiver must be completed by all volunteers.

Project AWARE is a growing movement of scuba divers protecting the ocean – one dive at a time.  Focusing on marine debris, scuba divers can directly and positively affect real, long-term change in our community.
