Diving is about adventure, exploration and connection with our underwater world. The new limited–edition PADI®certification card features a playful and inquisitive sea lion in the waters off Los Islotes in the Sea of Cortez. Photographed by PADI Course Director Luke Inman, the card hopes to inspire divers of every level in every corner of the globe to discover their own personal relationship with the ocean we love — and the life within.
The Story Behind the Card
“Near La Paz, Mexico, in the Sea of Cortez, Los Islotes is a nirvana for wild animal encounters. The sea lions there have provided me with some of my most incredible wild animal interactions. They have inspired my photography, where I hope to capture the spirit of the sea lions and their home, Los Islotes. Through my photography I aim to illustrate and promote the importance of making stronger connections with wild animals and, perhaps, to foster a greater sense of conservation and nurturing of our planet.”
