33rd Annual Avalon Underwater Cleanup

Avalon Harbor Clean-up

 
Los Angeles, CA – February 12, 2014 – What do diving, parties, fun, and odd finds all have in common? They can all be found at the 33rd Annual Avalon Underwater Cleanup. Taking place at Avalon Harbor on Catalina Island, this event offers exciting dive adventures that are only available during the event. The Harbor is closed to divers at any other time.

For the second year, even the protected marine preserve, Lover's Cove, will be open to divers for clean up. Dive in and see what you can bring up. Prizes are offered for many of the finds that help clean up the harbor. In last year's event, prize winning items were found such as an original “Jaws” t-shirt, a porcelain tea cup, a garbage disposal unit, and even a $25 gift card. Join us (Lover’s Cove) for the fun and excitement of discovering what lies beneath the water while helping clean up the harbor. 

This annual event started in the 1970's by the local diving community as a way to help clean up the Avalon Harbor. The event has grown to become one of the most popular diving experiences in Southern California. For over 30 years, divers have been helping to remove trash and clean up the harbor. The event is led by the Catalina Conservancy Divers, an all volunteer support group of the Catalina Island Conservancy. The Catalina Island Conservancy is responsible for 88 percent of the isle. The dive event takes place on February 22, 2014, but there are parties around town both Friday and Saturday nights. 

Come share the excitement and friendly atmosphere as over 500 divers converge for one of the biggest events of the year. Several dive clubs have made this their biggest social event of the year. You don't want to miss this diving adventure. To be eligible to dive you must be a trained SCUBA diver, certified by a RSTC recognized agency. A single diver is $50.00, a non-diver is $25.00, and a large group is $50.00. Register before February 15, 2014 to ensure your place in the dive. For more information about the dive, or for help with equipment, contact us. A team of our Pro’s will be participating in the dive at Lover’s Cover to help clean up the Harbor.
