Schedule
for Damon Ramsey

I try to keep this as updated as possible. For just completed trips and work history go to work history of Damon Ramsey

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:
Unfortunately, much of this schedule may no longer apply. Due to the virus, this schedule has been changed almost weekly. There has been many bookings and cancellations and re-bookings. Many companies have had to make multiple changes in their future itineraries. I am also juggling up to five different company schedules. This has resulted in many contradictory bookings that I am trying to sort out.

Please be aware, that it looks like that for the next few seasons, I will have to concentrate on companies offering Asia/Australia contracts to minimise cancellations.

Examples of colour coding: 
Work; including my role, dates, locations, ship, company
Cancellations & changes
Probably or going to be cancelled by company or me

Private expeditions, time off
Work related courses & training etc

Updates
Throughout the virus I am working in Australia on and off as local borders close, mostly in the Kimberley with Coral Expeditions (May-September). If you can't go travelling until everything settles down, then until then, here I am doing online guided walks for Noble Caledonia and online lectures for Silversea.
