Nature, Whale Watching
I am the sales manager and a Naturalist. I have been a nature guide since 2011. I work on the Marauder IV boat as a Naturalist. When I am not on the boat teaching visitors, I am in the downtown office working in the sales department.
I am passionate about whales and other aquatic life. I truly love my job! This is certainly my dream job! My knowledge and experience about the region allows me to educate people about the whales and the environment. My reward is when I see a passenger’s reaction to seeing a whale, especially for the first time! There is no better feeling than when someone tells you, you have made their dreams come true!
Raised in Ireland, I took for granted having such marvellous wildlife in my backyard. My parents opened my eyes with taking me to many places to see various animals and mammals. After traveling to observe whales throughout the world as an adult, I finally moved here for this amazing job.
