Divers from around the world have been invited to take part in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the Largest Underwater Cleanup.
The event will be held on June 15, 2019, at Deerfield Beach, Florida. In total, organizers are hoping to feature more than 700 divers to smash the current record of “Most Participants in an Underwater Cleanup in 24 hours (single venue)” which stands at 614 divers. The current record was set in Egypt in 2015.
It is hoped the event will highlight the importance of removing marine debris and protecting our oceans against pollution and debris.
If you’re interested in taking part in the event, you will need to register by June 8, 2019.
Attempt participants will receive a long-sleeve wicking shirt and a small gift bag. Also, participants will be eligible to apply for an official participation certificate. Non-diving volunteers who take part will get a free t-shirt.
