Meet The Staff: Roger McDonell



Roger was certified in 1977 in Brandon, Manitoba and began diving in Campbell River shortly after. He soon found interest in underwater photography, allowing him to share the incredible marine life with divers and non-divers alike. You can find his content all over our website and social media.

Roger runs dive charters from Ocean Guardian and his cruiser Gizmo. His decades of experience diving and running boats on Vancouver Island gives him the knowledge and expertise to safely deliver divers to the best dive sites around.
