Maddy Hunt

Expedition Crew & Dive Instructor

After chasing snow seasons across Canada, Japan and Australia, I moved to Cairns for some warmer weather and to find a new career path. Here I completed a Dive Master traineeship with the Crown of Thorns Starfish (CoTS) control program, contributing to protecting the Great Barrier Reef for 3 years from this native starfish which predates on our healthy coral reef systems. During this time, I was able to learn to drive and master a small vessel.

Now, I am employed as a Dive Instructor and Expedition Guide with Coral Expeditions, which has taken me to many places across Australia and overseas which has been a dream.

Naturally coming from the diving industry, my main interests lie within the ocean and what lives beneath it.
