PADI® and GoPro are teaming up to rally people around the world to dive in and make a statement for ocean conservation with the world’s first-ever Underwater Selfie Day on 7 November! 

By flooding social media with amazing underwater photos and videos for one day; divers, water lovers, and action sports enthusiasts will put a spotlight on the human connection to the ocean – showing millions of people around the world just how incredible it really is and why it’s worth protecting.

Kristin Valette-Wirth, Chief Brand and Membership Officer for PADI Worldwide said: “PADI is committed to growing its community of torchbearers who explore and protect our ocean. We’re thrilled to partner with GoPro to inform, excite, and empower people everywhere to seek adventure and save the ocean on Underwater Selfie Day and year-round.”

Here’s how you can take part! 

Dive below the surface and take your best underwater selfie with your GoPro, or share one from a past adventure, showcasing the world you want to save so you and future generations can continue to seek adventure. 

Post your selfie photo or video to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter on 7 November, and don’t forget to tag PADI and GoPro with #UnderwaterSelfieDay. 

Pollution, habitat loss, and overfishing are some of the dangerous threats to the oceans’ health, and they can also destroy the marine ecosystem.

Together, we can do something. So, love our ocean, guys!
