Meet Janine


Janine has been working with manta rays since 2006, and Martina and Janine have known each other for years and worked together on countless night dive charters where Janine was the guide or captain, and Martina was the camera person.

She’s a powerhouse and multi-talent with fantastic juggling skills.

Janine is the mom of twin teenage boys, a wife, a scuba instructor, a boat captain, and a registered nutritionist who loves trail running.

She joined the Manta Ray Advocates team in 2022, and we couldn’t be happier! As a passionate ocean recreation professional, Janine has all the answers to your questions if you call our reservation line.
