A diver’s journey doesn’t end when they receive a newly minted C-card—it’s just the beginning.

By taking advanced courses and specialties, building community with other divers, practicing skills and simply getting out to explore the underwater world, everyone can continue their lifelong journey to becoming a more competent and confident diver.

PADI Club offers numerous benefits— in all, a membership can provide more than $500 in savings per year—but a few are especially designed to aid divers in their quest for self-improvement.
