Are you looking for something specific? I have several formats that can be personalised to suit you! I host 1 - 500 guests. Send me a message!

Ok, let’s set aside what you thought you knew about sharks as we adventure below the ocean’s surface - a mysterious (& scary) place, full of unspeakable monsters! Or so it seems..



Meet Sereia the Tiger shark - an ocean giant that I’m teaming up with to save us all. Follow her record breaking swim and learn how we use science & technology to uncover the secret lives of sharks. Be warned, you will shake your head in disbelief.



I will share my favourite stories, images & videos taken by myself and a team of scientists, BAFTA winners, Emmy nominees & Cinematographer of the year awardees.

I can’t wait to take you to one of the most enchanting marine reserves on the planet, one that NOBODY knows about!

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 was a great online host..i really enjoyed the experience. I learned a lot of new things about sharks and their protection. I highly recommend the experience, as it is the least we can do to help protect these creatures. Keep up the good work!!!

I have never seen a person shining like Justin while talking about sharks, so much now I want to adopt one (not Justin, but the shark). Resources provided for digging are very useful too, the session was truly inspirational and instructional as well, feeling blessed I've met him even just virtually
