We all have a story to tell. PADI divers and members, especially. Every day we hear and trade stories, pictures and videos of the incredible and unique experiences we have as divers. So, what’s your story?

This month, we’re asking PADI supporters to share their story with us. It could be of your first experience with scuba diving, that incredible first breath underwater, or the pride you felt after receiving an advanced certification. Your #myPADI story could be anything from the moment that got you hooked to a favorite memory of diving with friends or an unforgettable location you’ve been to. The possibilities are endless!

Here are some more ideas and tips to help get you started:

  • Share a photo or video of the first time you saw your favorite underwater creature
  • Share a short written piece about a memorable dive moment
  • To be eligible, you must hashtag #myPADI
  • If posting a photo or video, you must include a brief caption/description detailing the experience
