PADI Launches Updated 'PADI Dive Guide' Information and Booking System
PADI has launched a revamped version of its travel information pages with a new 'PADI Dive Guides' feature on its website. PADI says that the new guides will 'make it easier than ever for divers to discover, explore and plan their next adventure by providing the tools needed to research and book dive experiences or training anywhere in the world.'
'Dive destination information has been integral to padi.com for years,' said Lisa Nicklin, Vice President of Consumer Marketing for PADI Worldwide. 'This next evolution provides more detailed guides that will continue to grow in global coverage and bring unprecedented value to PADI Members and divers alike. Leveraging new system capabilities, the guides combine PADI’s global expertise with the immense local knowledge of PADI Members around the world. PADI Dive Guides enable divers to plan and book adventures near home or wherever their future travels may take them – all through one convenient platform.'
The collection of guides is available at padi.com/exploration and includes marine life calendars, seasonal weather data and travel information, and provides large-scale dive information by continent and country, or users can drill down to more specific destinations and their local dive sites.
Information from local dive guides and reviews from previous visitors are also provided, and users can contact PADI operators to book dives, snorkel trips, holidays and courses through the integrated PADI Adventures platform.
