Mark Kelly has been involved in outdoor activities  from 10 years of age. He is passionate about the outdoors and has made sharing this passion his career choice,  instructing in many activities for over 20 years. He has worked as a senior instructor for several well respected companies and ran his own successful adventure company in his native North West Ireland.

Since moving to Cornwall in 2013 Mark has developed his company into specialising in training and consultancy for outdoor adventure providers, as well as becoming a Beach Lifeguard Trainer and Assessor for both The Royal Life Saving Society and Surf Life Saving Great Britain. He was also lucky enough to be taken under the wing of Jeff Allen, Simon Osborne and Shaun Rogers of Sea Kayaking Cornwall who introduced him to the inspirational adventure that Sea Kayak guiding in Cornwall and worldwide offers. Thanks to their inspiration Mark now regularly introduces, guides and trains a huge variety of people in  Sea Kayaking, Coasteering, SUP, Surfing and Lifeguarding all around the Cornish coast and beyond.
