Ballast Point Cleanup

Join us Sunday, Dec. 8 at 9 a.m. to Clean up Tampa Bay!
Globally, annual plastic production has boomed from 1.7 million tons in 1950 to almost 300 million. As much as 250 million metric tons of plastic could make its way into the ocean by 2025. The environmental damage caused by plastic debris alone is estimated at $13 billion a year.
As scuba divers, we are invested in the beauty and conservation of our oceans and waterways. Monthly, Adventure Outfitters partners with Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful and Project AWARE to clean up the inner-coastal and inner-Bay waterways including Ballast Point Park, Picnic Island, Marjorie Park on Davis Island and the Old Gandy Bridge in Tampa Bay that are the gateways to our oceans.
