One of Greg’s most interesting experiences as a diver was as one of two divers that made a dive to the bottom of West Hawk Lake on September 2, 2001 (televised on “Planet Ocean”). At 365′ deep it is the deepest lake in Manitoba. The two year process of training and planning for this dive remains one of his most challenging and interesting diving experiences.
