The ScubaEarth Community of Divers

An online dive log is a convenient way to record topical conditions at diving and snorkeling destinations with world weather and travel reports.

ScubaEarth PADI was an online resource social community sharing platform dedicated to scuba divers, snorkelers, and aquaphiles (water lovers).

Let's Dive into Scuba Earth a Little Deeper!

Not only was ScubaEarth a worldwide community of divers, it was also an enormous database of dive information.

Hence, logging a dive online becomes a source of information for other divers.

The details stored in a digital diving log book are valuable information that may include:

The launch of PADI's range of digital certification paks has made it easy for dive students to log their training dives online.

Put another way, having to sign a wet log book at the end of a dive has become antiquated and - in most cases - a thing of the past.

Here's the deal:

Just as a paper logbook requires the instructor's signature, training dives that are logged online must be approved by the Instructor who conducted the actual dive.

Thus, a certified scuba trainer will be able to use a digital signature to approve all the required dives to certify their students.

There are several methods for logging dives in the ScubaEarth PADI online dive log. You insert your personal dive profile information by (any):

Most of the personal information relates to things like, air consumption, water temperature, surface intervals, and amount of weight needed.

But, the "Dive Comments" section is an easy way to provide helpful information for other divers to see when they view that particular dive site.

Here's a good example:

"Head out to the Chumphon Pinnacle dive site in Koh Tao if you want to see lots of whale sharks in Thailand!"

After students log training dives into a digital log book, they'll see "Pending Approval" next to their insert - until it gets approved.

When logging a training dive with PADI, the student must include the "Pro number" of the instructor. After the dive is submitted for approval, an email is generated for the scuba trainer to approve it as a successful "scuba training dive".

Pro Tip: The eTraining Log is an optional way to verify the completion of training dives. Even so, divers and scuba instructors may continue to log dives in a paper logbook if they choose.
