PADI Instructor Materials - Where to buy/Cost?

For all of you instructors out there, I wanted to ask where you purchase your Instructor Materials for your classes? (PADI Open Water/Advanced crew packs/PICS)

We used to buy from ProDive out of Florida but they’re not selling anymore.

I contacted another place in FL that we can get our materials from and they’re charging around 17 for PICS and about 35 for PADI Open Water crewpacks.

Do those prices seem about average or has anyone found a company with lower prices?

Thanks for your ideas in advance!!

I’ve looked into Florida Scuba Adventures.


They offer PADI Level 2 for instructors.


But may I suggest that Divebuddy.com may be a perfect site to put together a purchasing group to benefit members. Maybe just for lifetime members that are pro status.

Diver’s Supply has Instructor Pricing. We buy our materials at level 4 pricing. (www.divers-supply.com) They have several stores, but the main store is in Georgia.
