Thank you for being such an amazing collection of souls, each with your own special spirits that have added so much to my life. It has been an amazing life, and I have loved every minute (well, almost every minute). Do not cry – but instead, find something really funny and have a massive belly laugh – I will hear you and laugh along with you.

Who was Robin Aiello?

Robin Aiello was a Silver Explorer Expedition Cruiseship, a Marine Biologist Lecturer at Silversea Cruises, and an Expedition Leader at Wild Earth Expeditions (Sydney, Australia).

Australian city of Cairns, Queensland, is the hometown of Robin Aiello. Her school was Phillips Academy. She was the sister of Brooke Devine and Lloyd Paul Aiello. Almost all of Robin Aiello’s life has been spent in or near the oceans. She graduated with high honors from Harvard University with degrees in evolutionary biology and marine biology.

She spent 4 months in Antarctica sleeping on the ice and diving beneath it, 2 weeks living underwater in the Caribbean studying corals, cave diving in the Pacific, snorkelling with minke whales, and diving with thousands of sharks, including Great Whites and Makos, after completing her education.

“It is my breadth of adventures and experiences, combined with the vast changes that I have witnessed in the environment over several decades, that I share with my guests on Silversea’s expeditions. I believe that it gives them a broader understanding of the magnificent environments through which they are traveling.”

– Robin Aiello, Silversea Expedition Team Member

Robin came to Australia in 1992 to work as a coral reef researcher and instructor at many Australian research institutions. With an emphasis on the preservation, management of resources, interpretation, and teaching of coral reef settings, she now owns and operates her own environmental consultancy business.

A crucial component of the business’ activities is acting as a conduit between regional communities and governmental institutions. She frequently gives the opening address at international conferences and study groups that are organised by the Smithsonian Institution.

She has travelled to most of the world’s continents, including Antarctica, the Arctic, the Great Barrier Reef, the Caribbean, South America, Southern and Western Africa, the South Pacific, French Polynesia, the British Isles, and the Indian Ocean. Since 2004 she has worked on adventure cruise ships.

“I was deeply saddened to hear that we have lost one of the most amazing women I have ever met. Robin Aiello you were not only one of my best “mates” and an incredibly passionate and lovely human being, but you were our “own” very special “snorkel guide extraordinaire” and one of the most knowledgeable and best lecturers I have ever met. You were part of our Wild Earth family. You showed so many of our Wild Earth Explorers the wonders of your world. You were full of life, and never let this heart condition hold you back from your dreams and aspirations, including getting back into diving with us. I will miss having a good laugh with you at the end of an adventure-filled day. You certainly made the most of your life and lived it to the fullest. I feel privileged that I got to share many incredible moments with you. Memories that will last forever. You will be terribly missed by all that knew you, my friend. I am heartbroken. The ocean won’t be the same without you in it. I will see you out in the blue….RIP sista”

“May you Rest in Peace Robin Aiello 🙏🏻. You’ve become the angel of the Expedition 😇. Guide whoever wields the steering wheel of the ship every time there is bad weather they encounter.”

One of the worst things anyone can go through in life is losing a loved one. Any journey must have a destination at the end. The person’s time on earth has regrettably come to an end now that they have died.

We wish her eternal peace and send our thoughts and prayers to her loved ones, family, friends. May she rest in peace.
