Expedition Leader & Master Reef Guide
Marine Biologist Marysia has a contagious love for the Great Barrier Reef. She was involved in various research projects with CSIRO and AIMS, and recently graduated from the Master Reef Guides program. She is now recognised as one of the world’s leading reef guides, interpreters and storytellers sharing the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef through engaging and educational experiences.
In 2019 she was one of 12 Coral Expeditions Directors Club Winners voted by her fellow crew members as being someone who continually goes above and beyond for our guests. Here’s what some of her peers had to say about her:
‘Her enthusiasm and interaction with our guests PLUS a strong team player. Nothing is ever a problem for her. Her excitement of our product and the places we share with our guests is clear and this heartfelt passion passes to all guests”
“Her friendly disposition is appreciated by all, she is always a pleasure to work with. She is always one to look out for the team and she creates a thriving and motivating environment onboard with her bubbly personality. Some of her many qualities include her passion for her job, her caring nature for all as well as her jaw dropping iced coffee making skills. She is always one to boost the moods on board as she brings guests and crew together for a laugh. It is always a privilege to attend her expedition excursions. She displays continuous dedication and passion, recognisable through her devoted work ethic. She also has extensive knowledge about the geography and history of the destinations we visit”
