As 2020 comes to a close, and we look ahead to the New Year, PADI is committed to providing opportunities for people around the world to seek adventure and save the ocean. Whatever your relationship with the ocean, we invite you to join us in our common mission of exploring and protecting this blue planet we all call home – there is definitely a lot to look forward to!

Dive Local with PADI Adventures

This – oh so simple! – app has everything you need to get diving in your local area in 2021. Whether you’re looking to start a new hobby, to do a fun dive, or earn a new PADI certification, finding and booking underwater adventures has never been easier. You can even bookmark your favorite local dive shop to automatically be informed of dive trips and courses that become available throughout the year (when notifications are turned on).

PADI Adventures is truly the ultimate local diving app – available online here or for download in the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.

New and Improved Tools to Connect with Ocean Conservation

Calling all ocean-lovers! 2021 is sure to bring ample opportunities for you to take actions that heal and protect the ocean. PADI invites you to start the New Year off right by joining our global community of Torchbearers. Soon, we’ll be launching new tools for the PADI Torchbearer Community to monitor and track their conservation impact.

Throughout the course of the year, we’ll be rolling out new features and additions to the PADI website (including interactive experiences) to help connect you with ways to stand up for the underwater world. Conservation-focused courses, events, and activities at PADI Dive Centers and Resorts will be easier than ever to find and participate in.

We’ll also be strengthening partnerships with conservation organizations to provide divers with more ways to engage in citizen science programs. We’re especially excited about the surprises we’ll be rolling out in June, during World Oceans Month, so stay tuned.

Throughout the year, we’ll be launching new partnerships with brands that share our ocean ethos, bringing you limited edition collections of caused-based products that not only feature ocean animals but also support the protection of them, and introducing products made from new and improved materials (some of which might even be collected by divers like you)!
