• Expelled Dive Centers and Resorts

    The following list identifies former PADI Dive Centers and Resorts that have been expelled from the PADI organization within the last few years. These dive operations are no longer members of the PADI Retail and Resort Association, can’t conduct PADI courses nor represent themselves as PADI Members. 

    Note that expulsion is a last resort. The PADI Quality Management Program follows an extensive process that includes fact checking, getting all perspectives about the issue including the member’s and, when necessary, offering corrective retraining and cooperative compliance. Expulsion results when the PADI Member refuses to implement corrective measures, or when the nature of the complaint is so severe that expulsion is necessary to protect the public or to preserve the reputation of the PADI organization.

    If you have any questions about an individual listed, please contact the Quality Management Department at a PADI Regional Headquarters.
