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’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!

This was an excellent experience for the whole team. Justin is a great storyteller, his passion is infectious! Everyone had an opportunity to ask as many questions as they liked. Justin was extremely knowledgeable, and gave lots of insight to his own exciting experiences up close with sharks and other sea creatures! Thank you, Justin!

I've invited my teammates to join this event, and it was awesome! Justin is a really passionate person. You will see that he really cares about sharks from the first sight! I learned a lot during the session and, actually, started to pay more attention to these animals. The experience is quite immersive and family friendly.

I attended "Meet a Real Life Shark Scientist" with Justin as part of our team's offsite. It was a very immersive experience. We loved Justin's passion for his work and that definitely motivated us to think about marine life and it's preservation. Justin made the session interactive and showed us some amazing never before seen footage. Ask his opinion about megalodon's extinction theory and he will show you a real megalodon tooth!! Overall it was a great learning experience.

Our team had a wonderful experience with Justin! He was very engaging during the event and is seriously knowledgeable on everything to do with sharks. He answered a million questions about not only sharks but also technology, conservation, and marine life overall. Highly recommend this experience! Great for team bonding, families, kids, or anyone who wants to hear some cool stories and facts about the underwater world.
