Staff Spotlight: Captain Farva Jones

October 30th, 2017 by Seatrek Staff |

SeaTrek BVI is proud to present the next in our series of Staff Spotlights – Farva Jones. Each month we will be highlighting an individual staff member so you can get to know us a little bit better. We all come from different backgrounds but have a special bond that truly makes us a family! #SeaTrekBVI #StaffSpotlight #SummerCampAtSea


Farva  has been with SeaTrek for 13 years. To say he is an expert in all things SeaTrek is an understatement. He is a NAUI Instructor Trainer, US Coast Guard Captain, and a skilled turtle tagger. You can always find Farva with a smile on his face and a funny story to tell. SeaTrek simply would not be the same with out him! We thank Farva for all of his hard working years at SeaTrek!
