When writing something about a previous dive, what is correct? Are both correct? I have seen it both ways, and often think of it but only while writing about it. After some research, still no absolute answer. Give me some feedback!

[Choose #3] I think that dove is grammatically correct but dived is part of modern language to make it easier.
