About your host

I live off-grid aboard a 45 foot custom houseboat in Yellowknife Bay in Yellowknife called the Scandimaniac. I own two canoes, a kayak, and a sailboat. I love fishing, paddling, sailing and exploring Great Slave Lake. In addition to this tour my houseboat is also available for rent on AirBNB https://www.airbnb.ca/rooms/26903355?s=51
