An Ocean Perspective — Chris Gough introduces Healey Water Ops

By Elegant Resorts Travel Experts

Posted: 22 March 2016

For more than two decades professional waterman and big-wave surfer Mark Healey has been redefining ocean sports, from charging 60-foot waves to free diving with great white sharks. Now, Healey Water Ops (HWO) offers clients an exciting, immersive—and safe—opportunity to push their boundaries and explore the ocean in ways that have previously been inaccessible to the general public.

Over a thrilling, week-long Hawaiian adventure, HWO clients will learn the language of the ocean: how to catch bigger waves, bigger fish, and dive deeper than ever before, all while gaining a new understanding and appreciation of our watery planet. It’s an unparalleled and unforgettable experience.

Now in partnership with Elegant Resorts and Four Seasons Resorts, the HWO experience is an exclusive, Hawaiian experience that takes customization, luxury and one of a kind experience to the highest level available globally. If you can dream it, HWO will provide it!

As Mark explains, “It’s the combination and flow of these experiences together, and the connective thread through these different experiences and options that truly separate what HWO does from anything else. There’s something that has to be said about the crew of experts that we bring together and their ability to relate to the client; it’s about connecting, communicating and then educating; putting clients in these situations safely, based on my own filter and experiences of dealing with all of these diverse water activities throughout my career. I’m able to recognize and know the experts who are also the best teachers the world over. It’s bringing all these special and talented individuals together, the HWO crew’s relationships and experiences, and knowing how to combine days of seamless programming - going from a canoe surfing activity to a free dive introductory course to a private lunch on a secluded beach that you got to by helicopter. Nobody else can put together an itinerary like that, with local knowledge and access. There are very singularly focused offerings that are out there but nobody can bring this all together like HWO does.”
