The PADI Diving Society is the largest dive organization for a reason — it’s more than just a membership, it’s a dive lifestyle. Your Society membership lets you dive more, do more and offers the perfect complement to your lifetime PADI certification. When you join the PADI Diving Society, you join more than 175,000 dive enthusiasts of all ages and experience levels — from PADI Open Water Divers to PADI Instructors. For the past 15 years, PADI Diving Society has fostered a community of people who share a passion for all things diving.
Reap the Rewards
You’ll find special offers in the Society’s online Member Benefits portal at padi.com/pdsbenefits, which is loaded with incentives and savings on a variety of dive-related services and products from manufacturers like DUI, Sea & Sea, Submersible Systems, TUSA and Waterproof. And when you need assistance with equipment, training, travel and more, contact your local PADI Dive Center or Resort and show your PADI Diving Society membership card.
Take a Trip
Members-only Society events are a great way for new and veteran dive travelers to visit exciting destinations hassle-free. When you attend a Society event, you’ll connect with fellow dive enthusiasts and might even gain a dive buddy for life. Check with your local dive center to see what upcoming events and group trips it has planned. Stay tuned to Sport Diver for details on the Society’s 2013 Total Submersion and Ocean Safari events.
