PADI Members are more than just dive industry professionals. When you advertise in The Undersea Journal (published quarterly), you reach scientists, astronauts, actors, environmentalists, writers, journalists, photographers, travel-enthusiasts and more. Despite their diverse backgrounds and reasons for diving, PADI Pros share a number of characteristics. They are gadget geeks, explorers and adventurers who believe there is no such thing as aqua incognito. If it's underwater they'll want to discover it, explore it. And if they can't go there themselves, they'll design, develop or buy the tools they need to see what lies beneath. They are intrepid travelers and thrill seekers who journey to the deepest depths, the highest heights and beyond. PADI Pros are the people who buy your products and influence the buying decisions of an estimated one million divers a year. But above all else, PADI Pros are educators with a passion to share their joy of the underwater world with those less fortunate than themselves-- those who are not yet divers.
