News and Events

With years of experience as a kayak guide and an ongoing passion for exploring the beautiful waters around Vancouver Island, I am now focusing on instruction, empowering others through a series of clinics and courses to prepare themselves for a safe, and exciting sea kayaking adventure. That being said, I do still offer day, and multi-day, custom tours.
