PADI’s ScubaEarth Charges $150 a year for Dive Center Profiles

PADI lives up to its moniker once again...."Put Another Dollar In."

Nice dig Greg, I never understood why more dive ops are not using this.

Maybe they will feel better about it if I did charge them.

Greg could charge half and they would all start to sign up because of the perceived value. Sometimes free scares people away because they figure their going to see a bunch of ads shoved down their throats.

What’s funny about that is PADI not only charges a lot, but shows more ads than DiveBuddy :)

Instead, create a profile on DiveBuddy and post whatever you want on your own profile. I promise not to charge you $150 to post photos, your shop hours, courses offered or rental equipment. Post it all on your FREE DiveBuddy profile. And add your map location to show up in the original Scuba Earth! DiveBuddy, where you don’t have to put another dollar in.

Wow. I’m so glad you created this site ... I look forward to making lots of new dive buddy friends to go diving with!

I’m glad you like it. See if you can convince your local dive shop to setup a profile here as well...and start referring their students to us so we all have more divers to dive with.

Wow. Great is right Greg. Okay, I’ll spread the word with my local affiliates about DiveBuddy. So far I’ve connected with 4 local divers that are members of DiveBuddy, and am getting closer and closer to actually diving with them. Meanwhile, the diver from Malaysia, who found me on a buddy list with Aquatic Center, hooked up with me today, and we dove Devil’s Den. It was a grand time, and now I look forward to making a 2 tank day of it next time.
