What you'll do

The No 1 Best Selling Wildlife Online Experience!

Great for Corporate Teams and adding a unique spark to your next online event, all from the comfort of your home or office. Also perfect for reconnecting families, couples & inspiring ocean enthusiasts of all ages. You will leave feeling lifted & refreshed with a healthy dose of optimism.



Rated 5 Stars by teams & individuals from Apple, Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Spotify, WWF, Boy Scouts of America & the UK, and many more.



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 & Giant 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 is very friendly and easy to talk with. He could try his best to answer questions in a humble way with humor. The presentation overall was great.

Justin was an awesome host and everyone had a great time on this experience. I've booked it twice for private corporate groups and both times everyone loved it. Justin was easy to work with and super helpful when I had some technical questions about the Zoom. Would definitely recommend and book this experience again!

What a wonderful, fun and super educational experience. Justin is a wealth of shark knowledge who answered all of our questions and taught us things we never thought about about the shark and oceanic ecosystem! Highly recommend

I live in a different time zone and it was hard for me to book his experience in the early morning. But, once I reached him out about adding some schedules that works for both of us, he did it for me right away! So I would like to recommend everyone to message him to make an appointment! Of course the experience itself was amazing as well. He answered all my questions in details and feels like I became an expart of sharks and ocean reserve. xD Thanks again Justin. Had a great time with you.

it was fun 'cause it's not a lecture and more of an educational discussion about sharks! i learned some new interesting info about them like how smart they are and their interactions w/humans! we get to see videos and also we need to avoid touching them even if we're near them. some people try to ride them and drag them to the beach.... also, learned a little about south africa like how it's cold and its poverty/developing nation status is a reason for inadequate shark protection.
