I’m on a quest to spread a little ocean optimism, and some remarkable stories of sharks.

Supporting my lifelong passion through tourism & film meant adapting to 2020’s Covid crisis - so I started this unique online Experience!

My desire for discovery & ocean protection has taken me to work with Manta Rays, Manatees & Trevally. Don’t forget the SHARKS - Tigers, Bulls, Great Whites, Hammerheads and more. When not working with sharks I'm exploring the vibrant octopus gardens around my home town of Cape Town.

I know the ocean and her creatures inside out, so you’re guaranteed to learn loads, sharing in my adventures through the lens of a conservation scientist.

I love hearing your ocean stories, encounters & fears. Share, laugh and recharge with me as we make the world (&ocean) a better place.

I can't wait to hear from you!

Justin's program was informative and entertaining. He is extremely knowledgeable; seeking and responding to questions throughout the time together. Justin makes the tour fun and clearly is happy to share his passion for the sea life.

Justin was an excellent host. His enthusiasm for sharks is infectious and he is very well versed. We booked this as a corporate team builder and everyone enjoyed it.

How can we help sharks? Why not ask a scientist? In addition to learning about ways scientists tag and track sharks, we learned about ways we can support protection of critical marine habitats, and by doing so, we'd make a positive impact on shark populations worldwide. Justin's conversational style allowed our work group to ask very specific questions related to our industry as SCUBA professionals and how we can use our knowledge to further educate the people we teach and guide everyday. We appreciate the opportunity to speak directly with a shark scientist! Our experience with Justin was very informative and at an appropriate level. I'd highly recommend it for anyone interested in learning more about protecting the precious few sharks we have left in the ocean. Thank you, Justin!

Justin comes across as very authentic and has lot of knowledge about sharks and he was able to generate curiosity around the subject and awareness on what lies ahead for sharks and how we can be part of the solution. Great presentation!

This is a super interesting and interactive session about the sharks. I definitely learned lots of facts and knowledge about ocean & shark science from Justin. Justin is very passionate about what he does as well as sharing his knowledge and experience to inspire people to conserve oceans and protect sharks. This cause itself is meaningful and forward looking. Highly recommend it!!
