Protect yourself. Protect the Reef.

It’s all over the news these days.  Recent research indicates that chemical sunscreens harm the reefs.

Our wonderful Island of Bonaire is very eco-conscious.  The Island Council unanimously approved a motion to ban sunscreen products contains Oxybenzone and Octinoxate.

This Stream2Sea sunscreen is a local favorite and can be purchased at most dive shops.  Or come prepared and purchase online here:  Stream2sea!

Okay, so I didn’t stop at Divemaster….

The rest of the story.  So after this happened,  Becoming a Divemaster on the other side of 60! 

I went on to earn PADI AI (Assistant Instructor) with Staff Instructor, Ann-Marie and then OWSI (Open Water Scuba Instructor) with Course Director Chris Ball from “Great Adventures” dive shop here on Bonaire.  These are the finest instructors and human beings on the planet.  I am forever grateful for yet another life-enriching experience.  Cheers ladies!  Could not have done it without you!  Dive theory!
