Calling all registered divers in Alabama state. Gulf State Park Pier is looking for cleanup volunteers to join their Dive for Debris Underwater Cleanup.

Gulf State Park Pier offers so many unique adventures for anglers and sightseers. It is a favorite spot for watching the sunrise or sunset, observing wildlife, etc.

Unfortunately, garbage build-up has become a problem and it affects the wildlife. Aside from the wildlife, it also affects anglers who get debris tangled into their lines. Disposable materials, plastic containers, Cups, bait containers, and the occasional dropped cell phones occupy the area.

Dive for Debris Underwater Cleanup is a project that allows registered divers to contribute their time and effort for a good cause.

The project is partnering with the Down Under Dive Shop and Clean Horizon to make this event safe and successful!

The pier will be open for sightseers, but fishing will be postponed from 8 a.m. until noon, or until the cleanup is finished (whichever comes first.)

To register, contact Cindy Langston at

With registration, you will receive a free parking pass and one free tank of air from Down Under Dive Shop (you must pick up your own tank before the event – bring your confirmation of registration to the dive shop at 1129 Gulf Shores Parkway.)

Those who dive/snorkel will get a free hotdog lunch provided by the pier. Prizes donated by Clean Horizon and Down Under Dive Shop.
