Our People

Meet the team:

Chris – The Boss: Born in the jungle suburbs of Nelson, moved to the southern lakes after his passion for the great outdoors, loves to walk on the beach telling stories of the past and dreams of the future. Chris has worked in adventure tourism from the day he left school, travelling the world as a skydiving instructor and kayak guide. He’s one extremely enthusiastic guide who will engage you with curious tales & capture your attention with his infectious energy. You’ll find him on the lake, the river, the beach and anywhere that sells good coffee.

Joel – Guide: Born and raised in the big smoke of West Auckland, this city slicker needed to escape the hustle and bustle of the city life and follow his passion for the outdoors. After completing his diploma in outdoor education Joel went on to doing a couple of seasons whitewater rafting and kayak/paddle board work around New Zealand, and outdoor instructing in Hong Kong and China. After travelling around Asia and Europe he’s settled for now in the beautiful town of Wanaka! With years of experience on some whitewater rivers you know your in safe hands with Joel on your next kayak trip. You’ll mainly find him on the river and anywhere that serves a decent veggie pie.
