Mark Buckingham, Marine Biologist & Dive Master

A Marine Biologist and Zoologist by profession, Mark has explored many of the world’s remote wilderness areas aboard expedition ships. Whilst lecturing on a diversity of subjects, he maintains a strong interest in venoms and marine toxins, likely to have spawned from an Australian upbringing. 
As a Dive Master, Mark has lead Scuba Diving expeditions to numerous diving Meccas including New Guinea, Indonesia, Maldives, Solomon Islands, Micronesia, the Great Barrier Reef and ice diving expeditions to Antarctica. 
Mark has enjoyed many years guiding and filming along Australia’s rugged Kimberley coast — taking part in more than 100 coastal expeditions, advising to BBC documentaries, and unearthing some of the Kimberley’s long held secrets. Compiling a wealth of information on tidal movements and coastal navigation, his work has helped change the face of marine charts in the Kimberley.
An experienced boat handler, Mark spent several years driving pilot boats on the northern Great Barrier Reef with the Australian Reef Pilots. In more recent times, Mark’s passion has been designing and guiding private expeditions aboard super yachts and luxury expedition yachts to all corners of the world.
