Dion is one of the founding members and a Director of SMSG. He is one of the most remarkable skippers in the region, having been born and raised on a yacht in the Southern Ocean. Inevitably, with this background, there are few corners of the Antarctic Peninsula, South Georgia and the Falkland Islands that Dion does not know. His working knowledge of high latitude charter vessels, coupled with his ability to fix almost anything, makes Dion a valuable addition to any project or expedition. Dion is often the skipper on our expeditions, but he is also a very experienced research diver involved in transect surveys, underwater photography and specimen collections.
