Pete Davidson

Founder and director.

 Pete’s knowledge of biology and passion for sculpture truly inspire. With sixteen years of experience on Andros,  Pete has the knowledge to guide all MAIC patrons to the essence of the Bahamas, be it by land or by sea.

A quote from Pete: 

“The simplicity of Andros and the Old School make it  a sacred place to be shared.”
