About the Horizon Sea Safaris Team

 

 

Horizon Sea Safaris is a family run business offering you an experience you are unlikely to forget! We pride ourselves on our fun and safety record.

Horizon Sea Safaris was founded by Janice Denyer and Jon Brooks.

Having started sailing in their teens the sea has never been far from their lives. Living close to the harbour, in Ramsgate, they have gained extensive local knowledge of both the wildlife and history, which they are only to keen to share on the tours.

 Jon has worked in the marine industry for many years and is a popular face within the marine electronics world. Like all of the crews, Jon is an experienced seaman and an RYA instructor with a number of disciplines under his belt. He is one of the duty cox's of a local patrol boat, with this vessel being a declared resource for H.M. Coastguard, he is often involved with rescues at sea.  Jon has recently taken on the role as East Kent Area Coordinator for the BDMLR (British Divers Marine Life Rescue) covering Sandwich to Seasalter.
