“Chilly Dip”

Polar Bear Dip
Brrr!!!! These folks participating in the Polar Bear Dip had to be cold!

ORANGE BEACH, AL- Thousands of thrill-seekers participated in the Flora-Bama’s, annual New Year’s Day Polar Bear Dip.

The quick dip in the Gulf is a great way to get the blood pumping and wake folks up who might have done a little too much New Year’s Eve partying.

Water temperatures in the Gulf are in the upper 60’s.  It felt much colder on the beach with a steady, north wind and temperatures near 50 at dip time.

This is the 32nd year the Flora-Bama has held the New Year’s Day Polar Bear Dip.
