FAQ

Q.Can I bring my kids?
Yes! We encourage families and friends to get involved! Kids of all ages are welcome but we ask that anyone 12 and under be accompanied by an adult or guardian.

Q.Can I bring my dog?
Unfortunately, no. Dog’s are not allowed on Long Beach City beaches.

Q.Can our company bring our own tent/snacks/t-shirts?
Yes, you may bring all your own gear. We strongly dis-courage bringing styrofoam, single use plastics, and all other forms of plastics due to the prevalence of these items at our cleanups. Surfrider is happy to supply lists of local restaurants that use sustainable packaging such as our Ocean Friendly Restaurants.
