Beneath The Sea Will Honor PADI With ‘Legend Of The Sea’ Award

This coming weekend, the Beneath The Sea dive and travel show will bestow its “Legend of the Sea” award to the Professional Association of Diving Instructors.

It’s the first time an organization has received the award.

PADI Worldwide President and CEO Drew Richardson said:

“For PADI to receive the Legends of the Sea recognition is truly an honor. But, this recognition isn’t just for the company, it’s for every PADI Member around the world. That’s who makes up the heart and soul of PADI and I applaud them for their accomplishments over the past five decades. They’re the ones who have made PADI synonymous with scuba diving and the reason why consumers today are saying, ‘I want my PADI certification.’”

Beneath the Sea bestows the Legend of the Sea award based upon personal vision, drive to follow that vision and the dedicated pursuit of a need or goal no one else may even see or recognize.

The award ceremony will take place during the 2016 Beneath the Sea Show April 1-3 at the Meadowland Exposition Center in Secaucus, New Jersey, USA.
