My SCUBA Resume

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA The Wandering Honeybadger, Red Sea, Egypt, 2018

I was certified back in 1976 over here in Victoria, BC, Canada.  I have been diving continuously since 1976, and in addition to putting more than 5000 hours underwater in a wide variety of situations, both sport diving and commercial.  I have also dove in a variety of locations around the world. 

I hit 100 dives in 1977, my first year of diving.  I worked for the local aquarium for a few years, during which I also had the opportunity to dive with the captive juvenile Orca named Miracle on two occasions with UW camera equipment.  I shifted to more commercial diving, for two years working as a Geoduck diver, and sea urchin harvesting, via hookah rig, up in Clayoquot Sound, Barkley Sound, and down  in Victoria around the Gulf Islands. 

I have been sport diving around the world at:

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Similan Islands, Thailand

Knights Islands, New Zealand

Koronati Islands, Croatia

Vietnam,

In my diving experience I have been a primary, secondary, and witness to recovery of:  a dead body (my last dive of my course, we found and recovered), a stolen vehicle, and a gun that was used as evidence as a weapon in a successful prosecution of murder.
