OUR MISSION

OUR STORY

Giant Stride aims to provide a seamless user experience for both scuba divers and service providers. We want to create a sustainable ecosystem that creates value for scuba divers, service providers, and our platform.

  • No comprehensive database of service providers – Most scuba diving service providers are small business owners and have their own webpage scattered on the internet. It is time consuming to find all of them and compare
  • Outdated and inaccurate information of dive sites – On one of trip, we only saw sand and rocks, which was totally different from the advertisement and information we found
  • Limited Payment Option – Some of service provider only accept cash or wire transfer and does not offer credit/ debit card option As such, they had an idea to develop a platform – Giant Stride – to solve these pain points.

WHAT WE DO

Giant Stride is a scuba diving specialized platform that connects scuba divers and service providers in order to arrange scuba diving trips. We aggregate scuba diving service providers in one place, provide essential diving information of different places, and offer various payment methods.

WHY WE DO

We want to enhance and create a more efficient way of trip booking in this ecosystem. The scuba divers will have more options of trips and service providers, reliable and accurate information, less time spent in booking trips and more convenient payment methods. While, the service providers, especially small businesses, will have an opportunity to expose to new customers and make better service.
