The 12th Anniversary Gold Star Dive on Catalina Island at the Casino Point Underwater Park will be held on Saturday, July 18. The event is hosted by the Avalon Sheriff’s Station and sponsored by several dive shops, and companies associated with diving. This event will be a fund-raiser for the Avalon Sheriff’s Station’s  Y.A.L. (Youth Athletic League) program and the Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber.

Divers will search for numbered “gold” stars in depths between 10 feet and 50 feet. Divers will have an hour and a half to search for the gold stars. Participants who find them will return the number to the check-in table for a prize. All divers attend a pre-dive briefing at Casino Point prior to the event.
