FAVORITE DIVE:  The last one. As long as I am underwater, it's a great dive!!
This has always been a difficult question to answer. Currently my favorite type of diving is Cave, wreck and ice. I enjoy these because each dive I get to explore and develop all of my diving skills. To boldly go where few would venture to. 
HISTORY:  Patrick certified in Calgary in 2000. At the time, I was a trainer for ACDelco and traveled a lot. My teaching partner said "if you get certified we can dive together when we travel - and you'll like it." Well he was right! I love diving, some (my wife) would say it's an obsession. In 2002 I certified as an Open Water Scuba Instructor. This afforded me the ability to share my love of the underwater world with others. Becoming a scuba instructor has also guaranteed me a way to get more scuba buddies. Working with others to develop their scuba skills inspired me to further my personal training into technical diving and increasing my skills at teaching the sport to others. 
ON DIVING:  Diving allows me every opportunity to satisfy my desire to explore and I get to visit a part of our planet that most people can only dream of!
Diving is a sport that sets people of all ages and skills on an equal playing field. I feel that I am privileged, because I get to teach others to do the same!!
