In case you haven’t surfaced in a while, here’s a quick overview of the all-new My PADI Club.

  • Accessible from any device, My PADI Club is a digital platform that makes it easier for consumers to start diving and for divers to keep exploring and sharing their passion for diving.
  • Divers connect with other like-minded divers, share dive experiences, track dives, find the information they need to continue diving and save money on dive gear and training with PADI Members.
  • It gives divers the online tools, community support, expert advice, information and savings they need to become lifelong divers and aquatic world ambassadors.

In a nutshell, My PADI Club is an opportunity for the dive industry to work together to attract more people to the sport and turn them into lifelong diving ambassadors. It specifically addresses barriers to new diver enrollment and key reasons why divers become inactive. Here are five major benefits for dive pros of all stripes:

Pro Benefit 1: Grow Your Business

My PADI Club is your solution to attracting and retaining more divers. It encourages consumers to go diving and continue their dive education with you. My PADI Club increases your sales by offering customers discounts on equipment purchases and PADI courses as powerful incentives to buy equipment and training. The My PADI Club gear discounts are supported by top dive industry manufacturers including Aqua Lung, Cressi, Fourth Element, Hollis, Lavacore, Oceanic, Sherwood Scuba, SCUBAPRO/UWATEC, SUUNTO, and TUSA.

My PADI Club members enjoy exclusive discounts, equal to the cost of membership, on training such as PADI eLearning® for divers on the continuing education ladder, or PADI ReActivate® for those who need a helping hand to get back into the active dive community and/or want to keep their skills up to date.

Pro Benefit 2: Earn More Money

My PADI Club connects Members directly with divers and students. The Buddy Finder and Dive Logbook can deepen customers’ connections to your dive shop if you encourage them to use these tools.

Watch your customers’ journeys and stay connected to them along the way.
