Cruise Ship Speaker

** For details of forthcoming cruises, click here **

Together with my wife, Sue, a marine biologist and underwater photographer, we spend a good deal of each year working as lecturers aboard various cruise ships, usually covering all aspects of the natural history of our sea days and our days ashore.  We are always happy to meet old friends on these cruises – and to make new ones – so for full details of our forthcoming cruises, click the link above.

For cruise companies, we offer great value as you can contract  two experienced lecturers rather than the usual 'one plus spouse'. We have worked together for Noble Caledonia, Fred Olsen Cruise Lines, Voyages of Discovery, Saga Cruises and Spirit of Adventure, on trips round Scotland, to Norway, Iceland, Greenland, the Mediterranean and Adriatic, the Canary Islands, the Caribbean, South America and the Amazon (see below), and to remote places like St Helena, Tristan da Cunha and the Falkland Islands.  We are happy to work on both cruise and expedition ships, and have accrued lots of experience of what is required to help make these trips a success. As a guide to our experience and reliability, visit this page for the full list of cruises on which we have worked since 2005.

We are always keen to take on new cruise opportunities, so contact me here to discuss options, or contact our agents,
