The Platinum Pro5000 Diver card is the calling card of the world’s most elite water explorers. The list of cardholders is a “who’s who” of diving, containing the world’s most prominent dive leaders, scientists, photographers, manufacturers, retailers, and resort operators.
What makes the Platinum Pro5000 Diver award so special is that it’s all about diving. The unsung dive master on any island and Jacques Cousteau earned their cards the same way-by diving 5,000 times.
Let’s put 5,000 dives into perspective. It takes 500 dives a year for 10 years, or 100 dives a year for 50 years! That’s a lifetime of dedication and commitment to the sport.
The Platinum Pro5000 Diver card cannot be purchased. Individuals must apply for the award and be recommended in writing by two Platinum Pros. Applications are reviewed to ensure they qualify.
- Make 5,000 or more dives
