Underwater Explorer, Author, Photographer


Explorer in Residence, Royal Canadian Geographical Society More people have walked on the moon than visited many of the places Jill Heinerth has explored on Earth. From the most dangerous technical dives deep inside underwater caves to searching for never-before-seen ecosystems inside giant Antarctic icebergs, Heinerth’s curiosity and passion for our watery planet is the driving force in her life.  Heinerth received the Governor General’s Polar Medal and is a Fellow of the International Scuba Diving Hall of Fame, Underwater Academy of Arts and Sciences, Women Diver’s Hall of Fame, National Speleological Society, WINGS WorldQuest and the Explorers Club, which recognized her work with the prestigious William Beebe Award for ocean exploration. Heinerth’s memoir, Into the Planet, was lauded by The Wall Street Journal, Oprah Magazine, and the New York Times. Dolly Parton selected Jill’s book, The Aquanaut, for her Imagination Library program and distributed it free to 8000 children across Canada.
