SSI Develops Partnership with Online Travel Service

Scuba Schools International (SSI), the premier education and business support organization, announces the launch of a new partnership with Caradonna Caribbean Tours. Through this new relationship SSI can provide SSI Club Aquarius Members access to a full service online travel network.

Cardonna specializes in scuba travel to a wide variety of destinations throughout the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America and Florida. They are experts on finding the best deals to diverse destinations and can answer any questions you or your customer may have about specific locations. This allows you to be an expert on the places you have been, as well as the ones you haven’t!

The new SSI Club Aquarius program is designed to support SSI Dealers in their customer retention efforts. A full service dive club is an effective way to offer customers a reason to stay involved with a specific dive store long after certification. Combining SSI Club Aquarius with planned in-store activities is sure to keep them hooked.

"It’s important to maximize each customer," stated Gary Clark, President SSIUSA, "This club provides a structured program to keep people diving and involved long term."

SSI Club Aquarius simplifies the processes involved in running a dive club, by supplying the necessary tools for recruiting members, setting up an in-store club, researching destinations, organizing travel arrangements, and booking trips. Benefits include dealer controlled enrollment, revenue for annual memberships, online renewal tracking, commissions on individual and group travel, ability to research destinations 24/7, accurate destination information, experienced service managing all travel needs and professionally designed marketing materials are available.

SSI Club Aquarius can be reached directly at or through a link set up on your SSI Dealer web site. In order to view information and take advantage of the various specials on the SSI Club Aquarius web site a customer must be a SSI Club Aquarius Member.

Once destinations have been reviewed online the SSI Club Aquarius Member can book the trip through their SSI Dealer or use a privately branded 800 number. However the customer orders the trip the SSI Dealer still gets a commission.
