Survivor TV Series

Marine Team International began an eight season relationship with Survivor when its founder and president Capt. Lance Julian was approached by Mark Burnett Productions in 2002 for the Amazon location.


There was a requirement to set up a base camp and production office 900 miles up the Amazon River at a location 1 1/2 hours, by boat, from Manaus. The location was Ariau, a rundown Eco Lodge needing a great deal of repair for it to be used as a production office and accommodation. This required Marine Team to be utilized in the preproduction phase with supplies and people prior to setting up a 1/2 mile long pier out into the river as a staging piece.

Marine Team then continued to the island of Contadora in the Las Perlas Islands of Panama for Season 7 and followed immediately by Season 8 for the All Stars. The next location was Vanuatu for Season 9 and on to Palau in the Northwest Pacific Micronesia Islands for Season 10. Following Palau they located further south to Vanuatu for 11 and Guatemala for Season 12. Season 13 took Marine Team to Aitutaki, Cook Islands.

For each location Marine Team was required to transport supplies, people, equipment, medical personnel and patients, to and from various locations and base camp. They also provide water safety and dive support for each show. Lance provided research and a location scout for Survivor 14 in Fiji prior to being Marine Coordinator for Fools Gold filmed in Queensland, Australia.
