Reef Smart sponsors Barbados Dive Fest

Reef Smart is proud to sponsor the Barbados Dive Fest 2018, which will feature water awareness programs, scuba demonstrations, beach clean ups, and lionfish hunting and tasting.

The event runs for five days between July 3rd and July 8th and aims to encourage particpants to get in the water and discover diving and snorkeling. Reef Smart will be donating Barbados guidebooks to be used as prizes for participants in these events. Other sponsors of the event include PADI, Mares, Tusa, Cressi and Hilton Resorts.

 “Encouraging people to discover and explore the underwater world is something that is close to our hearts,” says Peter McDougall, Reef Smart’s Editorial Director. “We believe that through ‘hands-on’ learning we can help more people, especially the younger generation, to connect with coral reefs, which we hope will lead to greater protection of this fragile ecosystem.”

This is the second year of Dive Fest Barbados. The opening ceremony takes place at Copa Cabana at 6pm on Tuesday July 3rd. More information, including the full schedule of activities, can be found by visiting:


  • Hello ,

    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. 🙂
    I have even created an Instagram account for them ( ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

    I wanted to subscribe to your newsletter, but I couldn’t find it. Do you have it?

    Keep up the good work on your blog.


    • Hi Wiki,
      Thanks for checking us out! We’re hoping to get the newsletter up and running very soon. We’ve been busy putting the final touches on our Broward County dive and snorkel guidebook! We’ll be sure to let you know when our newsletter gets rolled out. In the meantime, please say hi to your cats from us.
