Faroe has been instructing sea kayaking at Ecomarine since 2005. She is certified as a Paddle Canada Level One Instructor, Basic Kayak Instructor Trainer, Level 3 Skills and a registered examiner for the VHF radio Operator’s Certificate. Raised off the sea air and rain of coastal British Columbia, Faroe has been in a kayak since she could sit up.

Faroe loves the immediacy, challenge and learning that comes from the ocean environment. She is continually seeking to learn more, whether it be paddling skills and techniques, or about the natural environment in which she finds herself. She delights in sharing her learning, knowledge and love of the land and ocean with others.

In 2010, Faroe undertook her first major sea kayak expedition, the Pipedreams Project, paddling two months along the BC coast. Since, she has paddled across Prince William Sound, Alaska, and returned to the central coast of BC, which remains to her, one of the most stunning places to paddle.
