I am honored to announce that

~~~~~~~ Patrick B. Smith ~~~~~~~

has been recognized and awarded the prestigious
SSI Platinum Pro 5000 Diver Award


The SSI Platinum Pro 5000 Diver card is the calling card of the world’s most elite water explorers. The list of cardholders is a “who’s who” of diving, containing the world’s most prominent dive leaders, scientists, photographers, manufacturers, retailers, and resort operators. The Platinum Pro 5000 Diver card cannot be purchased. Individuals must apply for the award and be recommended in writing by two Platinum Pros. Applications are reviewed to ensure they qualify, and over the years many have been rejected

What makes the SSI Platinum Pro 5000 Diver award so special is that it’s all about diving. The unsung dive master on any island and Jacques Cousteau earned their cards the same way—by making 5000 or more

Let’s put 5,000 dives into perspective. It takes 500 dives a year for 10 years, or 100 dives a year for 50 years! That’s a lifetime of dedication and commitment to the sport.

SSI Platinum Pro 5000 documents the dedication and commitment of diving’s pioneers and industry leaders that only the sport’s most elite people carry the SSI Platinum Pro 5000 Diver card.

A hearty congratulations to

Patrick Smith,

Pro 5000 Diver
