For over 50 years PADI®, the Professional Association of Diving Instructors, has enabled people around the globe to experience the wonder of the underwater world, but COVID-19 has disrupted travel and scuba diving operations across the globe, so where is it now possible to dive?
As the world slowly opens again, PADI wants to help divers get back in the water so they can enjoy the sport they love. PADI has created a new interactive map to make it easy to identify – in real-time – where diving is permitted and what dive shops are open locally and around the world.
This information is collated at source from 6,750 dive centres around the world and updated regularly as situations evolve. This handy, easy-to-use map features clear navigation. Just click on any country to see what travel restrictions apply, and to learn more about accessibility of diving in that country and the latest status for each PADI Dive Centre and Resort.
PADI hopes this map will help people discover amazing underwater places, both close to home as soon as possible and in far-flung destinations when time permits.
PADI® (Professional Association of Diving Instructors®) is the world’s largest diving organisation with a global network of more than 6,750 dive centers and resorts and 137,000 professional members worldwide.
