Patriot Dive Center

Training page –

In 2016, Deb and I relocated to North Carolina and I am currently associated with a dive center in the area: the Patriot Dive Center. I have made a conscience decision to align myself with the best dive center in services and support so I feel fortunate to be a part of Patriot Dive Center family, which I consider to be the finest Dive Center on the United States East Coast. And, of course,  I provide Scuba instruction through PADI, a name everybody recognizes and of which I consider to be the finest organization in the Scuba industry.
