About This Guide

I have been fortunate enough to have trained, mentored and assessed many of today’s prestigious/prolific BCU Level 5 Sea Coaches, something which I continue to do to this very day. I have been involved in the creation and development of other countries sea kayak coaching & guiding programs, in particular Holland (NKB) & Canada (Paddle Canada). I was also instigative in setting up and running the first Anglesey Sea Symposium.

I have had the pleasure to have been been involved in expeditions to many exotic locations in the world such as Artic Norway, Maldives Islands, Alaska and the Galapagos Islands. Sri Lanka to Svalbard, Greenland and North America, to name but a few?

In some form of capacity, I have worked for all the UKs National Centres, Plas-y-Brenin (1980 to 1987), Glenmore lodge , Plas Menai  & Tollymore. I also continue to instruct/guide, and/or work alongside many other prestigious companies, in this country and abroad. Wilderness Scotland , Isle of Wight Sea Kayaking ,Coastal Adventures, Skyak Adventures , World Challenge , British Schools Exploring Society ,  Anglesey Sea & Surf, Ice Warrior Hebridean Pursuits  etc.
