About Joe Burke and MusaDive

As a commercial diver for 30 years Joe Burke has plenty of experience to share when working as a guide. Joe has dived commercially for sea cucumbers, sea urchins, abalone and starfish in Alaska, Washington, California and New Zealand.
He has also spent time running boats and diving with National Geographic, Howard Hall productions, Survival Anglia, and Norbert Woo while filming Great Whites!
Joe has spearfished, freedived, or guided in the Bahamas, Mexico, Hawaii, Tahiti, Tonga, Fiji, Niue, Vanuatu, Bali, Kimodo Island, and Australia from the Coral Sea to Tasmania, to name a few. Joe currently lives in New Zealand and commercially freedives for Paua and Kina.

If you are looking for that world record Dogtooth and need an experienced diver to burley and manage sharks, or you are a beginner or intermediate spearfisher and want some training while freediving, Joe is ready to join you anywhere, anytime.
