The characters that make up the crew (and spirit) of Calico Jack are an eclectic team hailing from Australia, the UK, France and Indonesia; all Ocean lovers and adventure junkies who chose to live an unconventional life out at sea. Driven by dreams, they pride themselves not just on their hospitability, but in sharing their passion, knowledge and love of the natural world.
The diverse backgrounds and individual quirks of each crew member have instilled Calico Jack with a distinct and unique set of characteristics, giving her a progressive edge on the average liveaboard. Whilst operating cruises which allow intrepid travellers the opportunity to explore some of the most remote and ecologically abundant regions on the planet, the crew take great pride in creating and customising private charters. Whether it’s hardcore diving, recreational snorkelling, free diving, surfing, yoga retreats, wilderness-trekking, bird-watching or a family adventure cruise, the crew revel in personalising trips for their guests and ensuring unforgettable experiences.
The well-being of guests is paramount. Aside from the very experienced dive masters and cruise directors, there are a further 8 crew members onboard, including the captains, engineers, chef and stewards. Each member of staff has been well-trained to ensure their skills and performance meets the high standards of operation and the majority of crew have vast experience working on other liveaboards within the region. The crew revel in getting to know each guest personally; ensuring all individual needs are catered for whilst instilling their sense of adventure and sharing their enthusiasm and ambitions to create and live out the adventures they individually and collectively envisage.
