Victoria A. Forman was born and raised in the country of Belize. She is a fun-loving, adventurous and outgoing individual who spent most of her childhood going to her family's private island, Forman's Caye. Growing up as a fisherman's daughter, she was able to spend many hours fishing, swimming and playing in the pristine Caribbean Sea of Belize and learning from an early age about various types of marine life and their habitats.
As the Belize economy become more geared toward tourism, she developed a keen interest in finding a career in the industry and became a tour guide in 2003 at the age of 17. Being a freelance tour guide has opened many doors to exploring different places, including a few small ship adventures in addition to inland tours that she has done throughout the years.
Her love for the sea was a dominant influence on the direction her career and she became more involved in marine tours. As a dive master and snorkel guide, she spends countless hours of her days swimming or diving and enjoying time with her friends (spotted eagle rays, lobsters, nurse sharks, green morays, manatees and many other species of fish). Just imagine having the second largest barrier reef in the world as your office-what more could any girl ask for! She continues to share this joy with everyone she meets. It is her hope that you will get to meet some of her underwater friends on this Lindblad Expedition
