• Paddle Canada Basic Skill Instructor

John has always been one seeking adventure, whether rock-climbing, backpacking, or on the water. When he moved to Vancouver in 2015 he started borrowing kayaks from friends and it wasn’t long until he got his own and started taking overnight trips in the area. After taking a group of friends to the Broken Group Islands, he realized his passion for introducing others to kayaking and began a journey towards guiding.

John feels a sense of adventure and accomplishment every time he heads out on the water and loves the intimacy one gets with the water through kayaking. He also enjoys applying his biology degree to the marine life he sees and is constantly amazed at the biodiversity in the BC waters.
