I love to travel and in addition to diving enjoy, golfing, cycling and photography.
Heison Chak has been diving since 2002 and is passionate about scuba diving. His exposure to Global Underwater Explorers (GUE) led him further his dive experience and eventually found his calling and became the first Toronto based GUE Instructor. Heison is committed to bringing safety to OUC through education. Heison enjoys diving the Great Lakes and caves in Florida when he is not traveling around teaching for GUE.
Since he first got certified at the age of 15 Ted has been diving all over the world including: Europe, the Caribbean & Asia – but it’s the freshwater shipwrecks, especially those in Tobermory, Kingston & Brockville – that are his favourite dive destinations. Being a member of Board of Directors for the Ontario Underwater Council Ted hopes to help build the sport of diving by supporting divers, clubs and the dive industry. Ted is a PADI MSDT (instructor) and holds technical certifications from GUE, TDI & IANTD. He is a member of the Ontario Underwater Explorers club, has an MBA from Ivey & is a member of the Institute of Corporate Directors.
