My PADI Stories

My PADI brings together stories of the human experience where diving is the foundation for transformation. It is through diving, as Leo Morales believes, "that anyone can realize their best selves. When this happens, we are able to find deeper purpose and help others find theirs." Whether you’re already a diver or on the road to certification, these stories hold the power to inspire us all to explore our passions, find self-fulfillment and build connection to the world around us.

Mike Coots — Shark Conservation

A professional photographer and influential force in the surf community, Mike is committed to changing people’s perceptions about sharks and lobbying for their protection. Mike realized the best way to save sharks was to get face to face with the same species that took his leg and share that story with others. Through the power of storytelling and his photography, Mike hopes to show people that sharks aren’t the mindless killers portrayed in the media.

Jennifer Idol — PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer

When Jennifer witnessed the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in July 2010 on a return flight from a dive trip in Tobago, she knew her life would never be the same. Jennifer burned that image into her mind, and by August had created a plan to change people’s perception of their local waters. Over the next five years, she embarked on a dive journey to photograph all 50 states, documenting the fragile and finite nature of the water planet, enlightening others on the watery worlds of our own backyards and fostering a desire to protect them.

Zac Araneta — PADI Master Instructor

PADI Elite Instructor Scuba Zac has been shaping divers into ocean advocates for the past two decades. Born and raised in the Philippines, he knew at a young age that he wanted to spend his life in the ocean and make his greatest passion his career.

Witnessing his students experience their first breaths underwater and seeing firsthand how diving transforms lives, Zac is equally as driven to certify more ambassadors for the ocean as he is to building lifelong friendships with his students, many of whom become PADI Instructors, now instilled with the same passion for teaching as their mentor.

Meet: Ernst van der Poll

Ernst founded Tawasul, the very first marine-themed, place based experiential learning program in the region. The program engaged more than 2,000 kids from 2002 to 2011, many of whom are studying marine sciences now. He was also appointed personal diving instructor and safety officer for the Crown Prince of Dubai and worked with Palestinian refugees with physical disabilities. He founded ConnectOcean and one of the first all-ability diving programs in Central America, helping people with life changing injuries to enjoy the Ocean through scuba diving.

It is my mission that through passion and education I can ignite the fire in others that will bring about change.

Meet: Pangea Seed

Tre' Packard (PADI Divemaster) and Akira Biondo (PADI Rescue Diver) are the founders of PangeaSeed Foundation, an international non-profit organization whose mission is to empower individuals and communities to create meaningful environmental change for oceans through ARTIVISM, EDUCATION, and SCIENCE. Through the organization's pioneering Sea Walls: Artists for Oceans program, they have created over 300 public murals in 14 countries addressing pressing ocean environmental issues.

People protect what they love, so by utilizing art and activism as creative tools, we have the opportunity to educate and inspire individuals and communities to become better ocean stewards, and ultimately to help solve the mounting issues affecting our oceans.

Leo的故事:為潛水而生

在2008年因癌症失去右腿後,Leo就一直與抑鬱症做鬥爭,並努力尋找生命的意義。當一位好友帶領他進入水肺潛水的世界後,Leo重新振作了起來,找到了繼續生活下去的理由。Leo不斷挑戰自我,提升水肺潛水技能。在殘疾人潛水協會(HAS)的幫助下,Leo戰勝了自己,並在2013年成為了PADI開放水域水肺教練。而這距離他首次潛水僅僅過去了三年。Leo積極與他人分享自己的故事,希望能夠激勵更多的人看到生活的無限可能,為潛水而生。
