Ed studied marine science following a childhood exploring the extensive WA coastline with a nature-loving family. Following fisheries and aquaculture work experience in Shark Bay, Ed became ingrained in the early beginnings of Ocean Park and eventually bought the business from the establishing owners. Ed has a very high quality standard and is known to make 10 coffees until he gets the right one. When Ed isn’t at Ocean Park, you’ll find him fishing, diving and kite surfing around Shark Bay.
John first came to Ocean Park in 2006 and fell in love – with his wife, Shark Bay and the marine world in general. He gave up a life of physics to become a PADI SCUBA diving instructor and has worked all over the world including Indonesia, Egypt, Mexico, and of course the Ningaloo Reef before returning to Ocean Park to develop Shark Bay Dive & Marine Safaris and Shark Bay 4WD Tours.
Luke is a graduate of the university of life with a PhD from the school of hard knocks. The "Honey Badger" of Shark Bay will deliver a 4WD experience that is authentically Australian. A Freo boy born and bred, Luke loves nothing more than 4WD'ing, fishing and living the dream up here in Shark Bay. His passion for the area makes him the ideal guide to explore Shark Bay World Heritage Area with.
Kat is a triple threat - Diver, 4WD guide and expert Marine Scientist. Her passion and enthusiasm are second to none. Her "woo-sack" is always full! When Kat isn't giving tours in the aquarium she loves nothing more than exploring Shark Bay both above and below the water. You can find her either cruising the bay in her boat "Gotcha" or jumping over the dunes in her new car, "Franger" (pronounced frainjer).
Mason or "Captain Planet" as we like to call him is an eco-warrior, vegan, divemaster and photographer. When he's not washing his clothes with soap nuts, or espousing the benefits of veganism (ability to see around corners, levitation etc) he can be found exploring Shark Bay in his big troopy "Troy" photographing the awesome wildlife of the area.
Eashani or Eash as she likes to be known, is our most exotic employee coming all the way from the remote village of...Stevenage in the UK. A strong, independent woman and a fantastic tour guide inspiring multiple comments in our guest book of "you need to hold on to that one". Not all of them were from her family so she can stick around for a while.
Stevi is a keen fisher-woman and has just invested in a bright yellow fishing rod nick named the squid master pro. Why not ask her about her latest catch when you meet her on tour!
It would be great if it was the legendary AC/DC guitarist, but our Angus is no slouch on the keyboard. A cross between Jaques Cousteau and Billy Joel, he's marine scientist who will dazzle and entertain both in the aquarium and behind the piano!
Lillie is the newest member of the Ocean Park team. We are super excited to have her here!
