I love NC and Virginia Beach wreck diving! Have also traveled/dived some great locations - Key Largo, Isle Royale National Park in Lake Superior, St Lawrence River Brockville Canada, Fiji, Grand Cayman, Bonaire, Cozumel, Columbia, Greece, Cabo San Lucas, St Maarten, St Croix, St Lucia, St Thomas, St Kitts, Roatan, Florida Springs, Jupiter FL, Hatteras, Morehead City, Lake Jocassee. I have dived 4 German U-Boats (U-352, U-701, U-85 and U-1105) and one American Sub (Tarpon). I am sure I have left some out! Favorite Dive Location: THE NEXT ONE!
