Dr. Benjamin La Brot is a native Southern Californian who learned to swim before he could walk. He has worked on sport and commercial fishing boats, on the Floating Marine Science Laboratory vessel, in classrooms across southern California for the Los Angeles County Office of Marine Education, and for Pacific Biomarine Laboratories as a research diver. He also qualified as an EMT, a Handicapped SCUBA Association Dive Buddy, and completed a B.S. in Marine Biology, a B.A. in History, and a Geology Minor from the University of CA, Santa Barbara.

After studying medicine at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and setting up a long-term care facility there, Ben made private medical missions to Thailand, Namibia, Botswana, South Africa, Tanzania and Zimbabwe. Ben has combined his love and knowledge of the sea with his talent for medicine and service to create  Floating Doctors, which is dedicated to bring medical relief to remote coastal communities around the world.
