Our Team

The Majestic team is a group of committed professionals, we are stewards of the environment, and always interested in sharing our knowledge and skills with our guests. We provide in house training for all our staff every year in forest ecology, our local eco systems, marine mammals, intertidal life, shore bird identification, First Nations History and to review the systems that we have in place, the safety procedures, rescues and emergency protocols. We have a lot of fun together getting really technical about our paddling and teaching skills, something that we can pass on to our clients. Beyond our certification requirements, when selecting our guides, we look for people who have an impressive paddling career background, a lifetime of outdoor adventure experience and training. Many of our guides are bilingual, they are knowledgeable about the natural environment, the history of the area and the wildlife.
