Rob Stewart Dies In Florida

We are sorry today… 

Sorry for the loss of a true underwater naturalist and a role model. 

I am sure majority of DiveWithSeaman readers know Rob Stewart as much as I do and respect him for everything he added to our world. 

Well-known documentary “Sharkwater” is a-must-watch film not only for scuba divers, but also for anyone who cares about nature and habitat. If you came here by searching “Rob Stewart” on Google, start to watch “Sharkwater” immediately, if you haven’t already.


Who Is Rob Stewart?

You guys know me.. I like to write about how people “lived” instead of how they “died

So, who is Rob Stewart? 

He is from Canada (Toronto), a marine biologist, film maker, photographer and conservationist. 

Started to use his underwater camera when he was only 13 and became a scuba instructor when he was 18. 

Before we knew Rob with Sharkwater, he travelled the world to take wildlife photos. 

You can visit for wonderful photos of Stewart. 

Rob Stewart was in Galapagos Islands to take photos of sharks. This is where the story begins. 

He found out that people are killing sharks illegally. 

Then he tried to tell people about this all around the world. But, he couldn’t.

So, Rob Stewart decided to make a movie about illegal shark killing, so he was gonna be able to reach thousands of people and tell them what is going on between sharks and human-being.

Sharkwater was about creating awareness. 

Rob Stewart’s second film is Revolution, he also wrote award winning two books Sharkwater: An Odyssey to Save the Planet and Save the Humans.

Rob Stewart was doing what he loves to do: scuba diving. 

This time he was diving right above Queen of Nassau in the waters of Florida Keys. 

Rob was with his buddy, filming this underwater beauty as a sequel for Sharkwater. 

Something went wrong this time…. 

He made it to the surface, but this was where he was last seen. 

Stewart was able to help his dive buddy, ask for help from the boats passing by. But when a boat came by, Rob wasn’t still there… 

Not only Cost Guard, anyone who has a boat with a search light went to find Rob. 

We never gave up hope, as we always do for the ones we love. 

But we shed our tears when Rob Stewart’s family posted from Sharwater’s web-site:

“Rob has been found, peacefully in the ocean. There are no words. We are so deeply grateful to everyone who helped search, and happy that Rob passed while doing what he loved. We are working on how best to honour his incredible work. The Stewart family kindly asks that they are given some private time to grieve. Thank you everyone.”


Thank you for everythink Rob!
