During the recent Hope Spot expedition to the Gulf of California, Dr. Sylvia Earle and the Mission Blue team were deeply honored to accompany three disabled divers into the vibrant waters of Cabo Pulmo Marine Reserve. The experience was made possible thanks to Eduardo Martinez, director of Fundacion Teleton BCS, and David Castro, a special friend of Mission Blue and a disabled diver instructor who runs Cabo Pulmo Divers. The disabled divers — Fausto, Roberto and Salma — were a delight to dive with and received Dr. Sylvia Earle’s words of deep admiration for their courage. Check out this Mission Blue exclusive video to see Fausto, Roberto and Salma in action — proof that the ocean is for everyone!

  • Thank you for this wonderful post! The ocean is for everyone!

    In the next few weeks we will be reaching out to disabled adventurers to give us feedback on how or if, we may improve our newly released adaptive exploration craft. The Exploration Craft could help anyone with limited abilities explore our near shore oceans with non-polluting solar energy. If possible we would be grateful for your opinions. The watercraft was designed by a paraplegic but found it may have far more uses for ocean conservation awareness through exploration for everyone. In time we would love to get these out to groups helping others that want to explore our blue planet! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5RBS2SYXFk

    My recognition to Fundacion Teleton for believing in the project and sharing the opportunity tu everyone.

    Thanks to Dr. Sylvia Earle and the Mission Blue and Cabo Pulmo Divers!
