After a thousand dives, most of my diving is now local or West-Coastal, often with students and former students. I teach everything from snorkeling to the Assistant Instructor course. My SSI ratings include Master Instructor and Platinum Instructor.
My favorite cold-water sites are in British Columbia, Canada (in particular, the wrecks off Nanaimo and the wall dives in Browning Pass). My all-time favorite warm-water dives were in the Seychelles (in the Indian Ocean), but that’s another story and a long one. Ask me about that sometime, during a surface interval.
