Meet The Staff: Shannon Groenewegen

Activities Coordinator & Instructor 

Moving from the foothills of Alberta to Vancouver in 2016 allowed Shannon to discover and pursue her passion for the marine environment. While studying Oceanography and Biology at UBC, she started diving and quickly accelerated through to becoming an instructor.

She had the opportunity to experience the diving all around the BC coast, but it was Campbell River that she had her eye on after her dives here in Discovery Passage.

Shannon teaches courses and organises trips and charters in our local waters, and she can be found in the ocean during her time off!
