More about PADI▼ Less...▲

In 1966, John Cronin and Ralph Erickson decided to start a scuba training organization. They wanted to provide a safer and easier way for people to dive the underwater world. They could then discover the adventures found in underwater exploration.

Over a bottle of Johnnie Walker Black Label, they decided to name their organization the Professional Association of Diving Instructors, or PADI. This two-man operation became one of the world's largest scuba training organizations. For more than five decades, PADI has been providing high-quality recreational training programs and supervision.

PADI’s mission is to develop programs to encourage people worldwide to learn recreational scuba diving and snorkeling. Its vision is to be the pinnacle of high standards in providing educational to scuba diving professionals and enthusiasts. In short, its mission is to teach the world to dive.

PADI's slogan: The Way the World Learns to Dive.
