I am excited to offer participants personalized opportunities to experience kayaking and canoeing around North Bay and Sudbury, Ont. I am a Paddle Canada certified instructor (sea kayak) as well as a Wilderness First Responder Instructor and enthusiastic about both topics. Check out Shockwaves Paddle and First Aid on Facebook to see some of my course offerings. Occasionally, Shockwaves will use other team members as lead or assistant guides who are experienced in the area.
