Scuba Fest Cozumel is an annual event on the beautiful island paradise of Cozumel, Mexico. Each year scuba divers from around the world gather to celebrate the vibrant coral reefs that made Cozumel famous and to share their passion for ocean conservancy. Events are more than just the incredible dives, they include lectures on research and investigation, culinary events, cultural events and networking of scuba professionals creating a social environment and a strong community prepared to fight for the preservation of Cozumel’s underwater world.

Their mission:

To provide a solid platform that will attract and serve national and international dive tourism to the Caribbean Island of Cozumel, and to maintain the island’s position as Mexico’s Dive Capital by promoting its natural beauty, including the famed Mesoamerican Reef.

Del Sol Photography is thrilled to support the cause and promote healthy oceans and reefs around the world, not just in our (gorgeous) backyard. Photographer Sol attended Scuba Fest Cozumel 2014 to document the event and the glorious destination of Cozumel. She shared her experience with us…

 I have always been an ocean lover. I grew up in Cancun and call my self “mermaid at heart” however I had never been so close to the people that are currently working for the conservation of the ocean as I was last week at Cozumel Scuba Fest. The people that lead exploration, investigation, filmmakers and photographers. I have no words that can describe the work they do. Not only in Mexico but around the globe in all oceans. Studying and sharing with the world the importance of preserving our oceans and its marine life. Our own life depends on it.  It was a life changing event. I’m deeply touched.  And from now on I declare my self and active “activist”.  Soon I will start in my own community of Playa del Carmen. So expect to see more of the amazing life under the sea from del Sol team.

Special thanks to the Scuba Fest team of people that invited me and to all the new friends I made. The “Golden Divers” in Mexico. Sol is here. Thanks for adopting me.

 

Siempre he amado el océano, crecí en Cancun y digo que soy “sirena de corazón” sin embargo nunca había estado tan cerca del grupo de gente que está actualmente trabajando en investigación, documentación, fotografía, cine … todo en pro de la conservación de los océanos.

No me alcanzan las palabras para describir lo que viví ésta semana en el Cozumel Scuba Fest, lo que escuché, aprendí. Literalmente me cambió la vida. Salgo profundamente conmovida, y decidida a poner mi granito de arena. De ahora en adelante me declaro activistista en pro de la conservación de nuestros océanos. Nuestra propia supervivencia en la tierra depende de la vida en el mar. Empezaremos en casa, con algunos programas en Playa del Carmen. Esperen ver seguido posts de lo que el equipo del Sol estará documentando al respecto.

Un profundo agradecimiento a los organizadores del Cozumel Scuba Fest por invitarme, y a los nuevos amigos que de todo corazón me “adoptaron”  los Buzos de Oro de México. Ya llegó Sol :)

GRACIAS!!!!
