We want your whole kayaking experience to be everything it should be, which is exceptional.

Nick grew up in Ontario and was in a canoe before he could walk. Exploring the rivers and lakes of his homeland he developed a connection to nature which followed him through his adult life.
When he moved to the west coast as a young man, the ocean took the place of rivers and lakes.
He took up surfing, then kayaking and sailing to explore this new world. After gaining a certificate in coastal adventure tourism from North island college, he started sea kayak guiding in Tofino, then off of Vancouver island’s north coast and finally back to the west coast, in the broken group islands.
In 2017 Nick purchased A paddle in the park kayaking and has been sharing the gulf islands with people from all over the world since.
Lindsay was born and raised in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island. Growing up in a family of kayak connoisseurs, going on her first week long kayak mission at the age of 6 months and carrying on the tradition every year after, her love for outdoor adventure only grew.
From snow to surf, Lindsay’s passion for wilderness always shines through! She has spent most of her guiding career in the Broughton Archipelago off the Island’s north coast leading sea kayak excursions, wildlife viewing tours, and forest therapy.
Studying at the University of Victoria she has completed a BSc of Psychology with a minor in Human Dimensions of Climate Change.
With a bright smile, she always remembers that “wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.”
