As part of a collaborative effort between the PUNTACANA Ecological Foundation and Mark Goldsmith, a dive instructor, there is a new dive certification called the Coral Reef First Aid Distinctive Specialty. This special dive certification, which is only found here, allows experienced divers to do their part in maintaining and expanding the staghorn coral population in Punta Cana, showing that conservation is truly a communal effort and something that visitors to the island can do to help.  #bluevisionadventures#bluevisiondiving #bigblue #savethecorals#coralreef #savethereefs #puntacana#dominicanrepublic #amomipais

Day 1 of the #PADI CDTC in beautiful Dominican Republic. I few nerves for the candidates but everyone is super pumped and super friendly. We have 47 candidates from 21 different countries and the first ever deaf candidate. It’s a great experience for us to be helping out and trying to make everything run as smooth as possible. Good luck to all the candidates! @bluevisionadventuresrd#ilovescuba#ilovediving#scubadiving#scubadiverlife#learningisfun
