This diagram shows the major currents that affect diving around the world. Over 70 percent of Earth is covered by water. Temperature, tides, water density, wind and Earth’s rotation all have a major effect on how water moves.
Veterans are the backbone of the countries in which they served. As someone from the United States, Marine, Army, Navy, or Coast Guard, I personally want to thank you for your service. Whether you’re a struggling veteran, searching for a purpose, or a vet on their feet – diving welcomes all of us. Not only will you find camaraderie and discipline, but you’ll also find a supportive community. Pick up your berets, dust off your boots, and let’s learn to dive as veterans.
Thank you to all of the PADI Club members who joined us in September for an amazing reef and wreck diving adventure in the Florida Keys. We couldn’t have asked for a better group with whom to experience world-renowned sites such as the USS Spiegel Grove or Christ of the Abyss, and we certainly enjoyed your interest and enthusiasm when it came time to show off raffle prizes, partake in group dinners and get into the nitty-gritty details about gear with ScubaLab director Robby Myers.
Perhaps it was serendipity that an all-female Divemaster course concluded during the week of the 2022 PADI Women’s Dive Day. This annual event celebrates the growing female diving community and encourages divers of all genders, races, and ethnicities to explore the ocean. While the Pink Pirates likely didn’t plan their graduation to coincide with Women’s Dive Day, this group of new female PADI Divemasters couldn’t have timed the completion of their first professional-level course more perfectly.
