Luke Tipple

Marine Biologist, TV Personality & Author


Luke Tipple is a marine biologist, TV personality, best selling author, entrepreneur and pilot. His love affair with the sea started while tracking down sharks in Australia with his father at 5 years old and being fed a steady diet of Jacques Cousteau documentaries. Guided by the universal language of the water he’s spent the past 30+ years in, on or under the surface, experiencing its gifts and brutalities. Since then he’s pioneered out-of-the-cage diving with great white sharks, used technical, mixed-gas diving to find sawfish on a deadly shipwreck, tagged radioactive sharks 250ft deep in Bikini Atoll, and searched for Spanish treasure in the Caribbean. Having consulted for and run several non-profits, Tipple is passionate about wildlife and his international conservation and policy work has been recognized for outstanding contribution by the Humane Society of the United States.
