Hi there,

my name is Gianluca Lamberti and I am here to help in anything you need to know about PADI IDC and amore in general, diving in Dominican Republic.

For PADI I am a PADI Platinum Course Director,and one of the few PADI Course Directors in the world who is also a full-time Marine Biologist. From 2000 to present, I have been a full-time scuba diving teacher and has worked as a PADI Diving Instructor in 21 different diving centres worldwide

I have trained more than 1500 PADI students. I have a unique knowledge of the local dive sites in Bayahibe since I have logged more than 5000 dives in this area. I can teach in English, French, Spanish, German and Italian.

In 2012 I simply decided to focus  more directly on Professional Scuba Training and for this reason I literally founded ‘Coral Point Diving’ from scratch, I created its logo, its website I trained his first 100 students and I even designed  its t-shitrt. With so much devotion, CP quickly became in a 1 ahd half year  first an IDC training and straight after a renowned and prestigious PADI Career Development Center, maximum recognition from PADI in terms of Dive Resorts

Coral Point Diving has now a professional, friendly staff committed to qualoity training and environment. Our “eco team” members are well-educated about the ocean and its inhabitants and we put a lot of effort into educating divers and non-divers alike, as to how they can protect the aquatic environment.We also all are fluent in several languages to ensure your experience with us is a pleasurable and memorable one.
