STORYTELLER

Brooke Pyke

Raja Ampat: Diving The Last Paradise

Why Travel With Brooke?

Brooke Pyke is an award-winning underwater photographer whose camera reveals the wild beauty of Ningaloo Reef, Western Australia. Her story is a journey from witnessing the ocean's overwhelming force to uncovering its most secretive beauties, showcasing the profound impact nature can have.

Once wary of the ocean's vast waves, Brooke found her calling beneath the surface. Snorkeling transformed the sea from a place of intimidation to a realm of wonder and discovery. This shift led her from graphic design studies to becoming a dive instructor in Thailand and Indonesia, immersing herself fully in marine conservation and the captivating life underwater.

Brooke's journey into underwater photography started in 2014 with a simple camera. Driven by a quest for perfection, she made Ningaloo Reef her home and professional focus. Her photography, more than a career, is a passionate commitment to showcasing and safeguarding marine life, bringing the ocean's stories to the surface through her vivid imagery.

Her achievements, highlighted by an international photography award in 2022, attest to her skill and unwavering dedication. But it's Brooke's talent for storytelling, featured in prestigious publications like Oceanographic Mag and EzDive, that bridges the gap between us and the underwater world. Through her lens, Brooke invites us to dive into the ocean's mysteries, making her the perfect guide for those eager to explore and protect its wonders.

“Thanking the stars I found Airguides and Jono's trip. We were totally taken care of! Paul answered all our questions and took care of the details so all we had to do was get there. Jono Allen is an amazing, talented photographer who created a special group experience. The WHALES were mind blowing. What a gift to be in Tonga staring into the eye of a baby whale! This trip was a lifelong dream come true. I highly recommend it so much we’ve already signed up again for next year!"

"The Airguides trip to Tonga to swim with humpback whales was the experience of a lifetime. I have traveled all over the world, and nothing compares to being in the wild, rustic, deep blue waters of the South Pacific while interacting with whales and their calves. A wonderful and caring team made our adventures stress free. Absolutely amazing, so much so, that I am doing it again this year! Thanks a million Paul, Jono, Al, Alistair, Christian and Polly!"

“ We recently organised our trip to Heron Island with Bibi and Paul as a last minute getaway. Seamlessly dealt with and an added bonus of having a world-class photographer/ free-diver as our story teller. The trip has only whet our appetite for more positive and relaxing experiences with the Airguides team- Awesome “
