Kayvon Malek

Kayvon Malek is an underwater videographer whose work as an expedition guide and in the wildlife documentary industry have taken him pole to pole. After taking a scuba course on a whim in college, Kayvon’s newfound obsession led him to working as a research diver and then to the Monterey Bay Aquarium as a diver and presenter. It was there that he found his love of sharing the oceans with visitors and began documenting his local subtidal world for any and all to see.

Now this passion has taken him across the world to some of the most productive cold water environments on the planet. From Alaska to Norway, and down to the Antarctic Peninsula, Kayvon documents these hidden marine worlds to show to guests aboard polar expedition ships.

When not working in the expedition industry Kayvon also works in the wildlife documentary filmmaking world- having worked TV series such as Our Great National Parks for Netflix and Incredible Animal Journeys for Disney+. He cherishes the opportunity to bring the natural world into the homes of people everywhere, so they too can fall in love with the oceans and discover a beautiful world that is more threatened than ever.

When not traveling for work, Kayvon can often be found in the kelp forests of his home in the Monterey Bay, perhaps making new pinniped friends, having staring competitions with rockfish, or out on an easter egg hunt for colorful nudibranchs.
