USC's Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber and Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies - Catalina Conservation Divers are proud to host Catalina Island's 40th Avalon Harbor Underwater Cleanup, one of the largest annual dive events in Southern California. Take advantage of this unique experience all while doing your part to make Avalon Harbor clean! Proceeds support USC's Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber and Wrigley Institute Scientific Diving Program.

While masks are not required for this event, we ask that attendees, vaccinated or unvaccinated, consider wearing them for their own protection and the protection of others. Unvaccinated individuals must wear a mask whenever they cannot maintain a 6' physical distance from those outside of their household. Please note that protocols are subject to change.


Please make separate reservations per dive location.
