Kim

Sea Kayak Guide

Kim’s love and wonder for outdoor life began early at her favourite place, Mount Baker. Through snowboarding, she learned to enjoy challenges and the connection to one another/the environment.  Back closer to home, the same learnings came through sea kayaking. Kim believes each person brings something good to share with the group and she looks forward to enjoying her time on the water with you!
