4Ocean Divers Help Break a World Record

4Ocean Divers Help Break a World Record

What does it look like when 386 divers all hold hands underwater? A new World Record! On Saturday, June 16th, 2018, six of our team members joined 380 other divers in Deerfield Beach, FL to set a new Guinness World Record for The Longest Underwater Human Chain. The previous record was 353 divers and was held by a team in Australia. This past Saturday, thanks to Dixie Divers who coordinated the event, we were able to surpass that! 

Before the World Record Attempt, divers were in the water to clean under and around the Deerfield Beach International Fishing Pier while many others were on the beach cleaning the shoreline. The pier attracts thousands of visitors and fisherman annually. Unfortunately, many fishermen and tourists lose their fishing line or it becomes tangled or stuck underneath and near the pier. Volunteer divers collected more than 1,600 pounds of fishing line, lead weights and sinkers, and other marine debris from the piling and surrounding areas. 

Check out the video from Dixie Divers to see more on how the day of diving played out:

by 4Ocean Team December 06, 2018

Can you guess how many bottle caps are in this picture? These small pieces of plastic have been found at all of our coastline cleanups. They're an enormous threat to marine life that can easily ingest them. They become an even bigger threat as they turn into microplastics. So what can you do to help? Recycle them!
