We are seeking a SKGABC Level 1 or AOG guide to be part of a small team that provides kayak guiding and guest services at Discovery Islands Lodge, near Surge Narrows at the remote north end of Quadra Island. Discovery Islands Lodge is owned and operated by Coast Mountain Expeditions, a local/family company that has been operating since 1987.
The “Day Guide & Lodge Host” job is a full-time position. You will primarily work with a crew of 2-3 people leading half and full-day kayak tours in the Surge Narrows Marine Park, but will also help with lodge duties, including assisting the lodge host with breakfast preparation, renting equipment, and providing information to lodge guests.
Basic on-site shared accommodation is provided – no commute! – and you’ll be living a stone’s throw from a tidal rapids playground, hiking trails and swimming lakes. Your co-workers are experienced, friendly and enthusiastic individuals who make work fun and play hard. Our ideal candidate is personable, attentive to detail, and eager to be part of a dedicated team. Knowledge of coastal marine ecology is an asset.
