Every year, the Avalon Harbor in Catalina Island is open to divers for one day, and one day only. Divers from all around come to help pull debris out of the harbor that have accumulated over the year. There are prizes given for the most interesting items retrieved from the harbor as well as raffle prizes that include dive gear, trips, etc.
The NLS staff will be taking a trip to the Island to participate in this fun event and welcome our scuba family to join in on the fun.
Check out the discussion posts for details on the dive site we plan on diving, how to register for the event, and specifics on dates and times we will be in California along with some recommendations on places to stay and dive opportunities prior to taking the ferry over to Catalina Island.
This is a great way to experience California diving AND do your part to help the undewater environment!
Additionally, if you are wanting to experience diving dry this is a great motivator to get your dry suit certification. Check out our Facebook event on Nov 19th for our Dry Suit Demo Day to get in on the action early.
