More than 600 divers set a new Guinness World Record for the number of people actively participating in an underwater cleanup! The event took place in Florida, USAW. All divers came to the beach in full gear and after registration went under water.

Divers taking part in the record attempt entered the ocean near the Deerfield Beach International Fishing Pier in groups and had to remain in the water for at least 15 minutes for their participation to be counted.

The attempt to set a new record was supervised by an official – Michael Empric – who came all the way from New York to make sure all procedures were followed and the eventual Guinness World Record was valid.

This was already the 15th edition of the dive clean-up organised by Dixie Divers shop and dive centre. It would be hard to better celebrate such an impressive result than the Guinness World Record. As for the amount of rubbish collected, it was, as usual in similar cases, impressive. The accessories lost by the anglers, in total, amounted to 725 kg!

The previous record for the most people taking part in a dive clean-up was 614 people. This attempt took place in Egypt in 2015 and was organised by Ahmed Gabr, holder of the current record for the deepest open-circuit dive – 332.5m.

Probably in the near future we will hear about another group of daredevils who will try to push the limits even further. These types of events have become very popular and, apart from cleaning the seabed, are a great way to compete and integrate the diving community. The organisers deliberately do not screw up the score, because as they openly admit, they hope that in this way they will encourage divers from other parts of the world to have fun and compete together.
