Skipper & Engineer

Lisa M

Since 2008

Lisa first joined the Calypso family in 2008 after completing dive instructors course. After a couple of years on the reef she ventured off to Europe to work 2 seasons in the super yacht industry, but her heart was still at the Great Barrier Reef.
In 2010 after much consideration she completed her master 5 and MED 2, with the help of the team at Calypso she became a skipper and engineer at the company. Throughout her years she has definitely had lots of wonderful memories, met some life long friends and even a couple of ‘interesting’ moments.

'2020 has been such a tough year for all but having one of the best jobs in the world we are definitely some of the lucky ones' - Lisa
