About the Trip Leader - Katie Yonker

Katie is the Director of Operations for Bluewater Travel. Though no stranger to the Southern California waters, Katie prefers to travel around the world and experience new cultures, food, and marine environments. Katie has led trips to the Red Sea, Maldives, Cocos, Guadalupe, Raja Ampat, Komodo, and Anilao.


Trip Leader Testimonial

"I first dealt with Katie almost three years ago when I wanted to join the November 2013 group trip to Anilao after the deadline for the trip had passed. Not only was I able to get on the trip but I had a lot of advice and recommendations about where to stay during the trip. After the trip was over, I provided her with feedback about things that went wrong as well as went right. She was happy to get that feedback.

Since that time, I have had multiple diving trips that were arranged by Katie. I am always amazed at her fast response time and the completeness of her answers to questions that I would have. Her honesty makes me feel that she looking out for me and giving me options and alternatives to consider. And that is why I continue to use her in planning my diving trips.

But I had also gone on trips where Katie is the trip leader. In fact, I pay special attention to the trips that she leads because I know that it will be a wonderful trip. She sets the tone for the group with her enthusiasm and friendliness. But I go on her trips because of her low key approach. Unlike other group trips that have a lot of review and critiques of photos taken during the day, Katie just wants everyone to have a good time and enjoy the experience. If anything needs to be taken care of during the trip, she will handle it. That is all that I want from the trip. And hope to go on more trips with her....such as the upcoming trip to the Maldives and Cuba." - Franklin Mah
