Pacific Trip Leader
Karl fell in love with the ocean early on in life while living in Southern California. His first job was at Stuart Cove's Dive Bahamas in Nassau, where he met his wife. Their love of the ocean growing, they moved to Bali, where Karl worked as a Co-Cruise Director on a liveaboard boat in the Komodo, Alor, and Raja Ampat archipelagos. He served as Cruise Director on a luxury liveaboard in the Indonesian archipelago for 10 years and is conversant in Indonesian. With over 20 years of experience in diving, snorkeling, and leading trips in Indonesia—and more than 12,000 dives under his belt—he is passionate about sharing his love of Raja Ampat.Our Team
I would absolutely do another trip with Karl. He is extremely knowledgeable and easygoing. He gave us great lectures most evenings and put together an end-of-trip slide show that was terrific. He also managed a map of all our dive sites and provided us with our own copies to take home. Karl is very easygoing and can blend into any group. Additionally, he was very courteous, regularly offering us assistance from getting us a drink from the cooler to getting our gear on for our outings.
