Straight Talk from PADI CEO: Thanks for All You Do

It’s a New Year with new opportunities and promises of better days. 2021 was largely a year of recovery for diving, generating momentum that will help us navigate the conditions ahead. As we head into 2022, the PADI membership continues to demonstrate we’re strongest together. When we pause to consider just how far we’ve come, we see more clearly how much more resilient we’ve become as a community.

At this time of remembrance and gratitude, all of us at the PADI RHQs extend a special thanks to all PADI Members, near and far. You and your fellow members’ tenacity and grit continue to inspire the entire dive industry, and the PADI staff remains dedicated to working harder and standing with you. The PADI community wishes you a prosperous year ahead filled with bright days, good health, joy and awe.

2022 will be year in which the PADI global community continues to make a difference together in the world. As we introduce people to underwater adventure, unite PADI Torchbearers in saving the ocean and partner with others in doing so, we are shaping a brighter future we can look forward to and influence as positive stewards of the planet.

Thank you for your commitment to seeking adventure, saving the ocean and to the PADI organization.
