Juan Carlos Restrepo, Expedition Leader

Juan was born in Manizales, a coffee growing city in the Colombian Andes. At a young age he was initiated in the boating world. Later, he obtained his Masters degree in Geology from the Universidad de Caldas in Colombia. His thesis project was related to coastal geomorphology and digital mapping of the Caribbean coast of Colombia.

A passion for travel and the great outdoors have taken this Colombian to all continents and oceans of the world.
Juan left his homeland in 2002 and traveled nonstop around the world for four and a half years, of which the last 13 months were spent riding his motorcycle across 2 continents. During his time abroad he worked on luxury mega yachts as a Dive Master in the Caribbean, Mediterranean and Indian Ocean, from Mexico to Thailand.

His travels eventually led him into the expedition cruise world and ever since Juan has become a bit, “bi-Polar” — he spends his time between both Antarctica and the high Arctic, both as expedition leader and lecturer on the geology of the places we sail to. Juan works on expedition ships full time. When not on board he normally returns to sunny Colombia and enjoys paragliding and motorbike touring around the country.
