Greg Watson

Greg’s whole working life has been one of interaction with the natural world. His first job after school was collecting venomous snakes, and extracting their venom for use in the production of antivenoms. A sojourn as a film cameraman for a few years in the big city honed his photography skills but the song of the snake and the call of the coral were too insistent.  He then worked for many years in the dive industry, as instructor, crew and skipper. The Great Barrier Reef was his “office” but he also spent time in the Red Sea, Central Pacific and in Belize.

More recently, Greg has for some time worked in the zoo and commercial crocodile industry, specialising in creating and maintaining innovative exhibits and developing and delivering interactive presentations, which is where, between cruises, he can still be found.

Here at Coral Expeditions, his articulate and entertaining presentations, both on board and ashore, seek to break down large scale ecological and biogeographical concepts into more digestible chunks, using local examples from the destination of the day.  He is always up for a chat with guests on the viewing decks or, indeed, anywhere on the ship. He’s hard to miss!

Greg is an enthusiastic traveller, with a special interest in reptiles, aquatica and invertebrates, and maintains an extensive photography website. He lives with his family in the world heritage rainforests of Kuranda, North Queensland, Australia.
