We're a small, growing company with an obsession for all things adventure. We offer a range of tours and experiences from bucket list travel adventures, car camping and backpacking trips, taste vacations, and mini 1-day adventures. If hired, you will be an employee, not a contractor. Employment is not guaranteed for the year. Assignments will be intermittent and sporadic, but there is lots of room to grow with the company. You may start off guiding our Santa Barbara SUP/ Kayak adventures, but those who wish to excel could be leading our international trips sooner than later.

Collaborate with our third-party vendors to ensure Adventure People have an exceptional experience.
Log detailed notes in the trip report including changes, weather, the performance of vendors, arising issues, and any other pertinent information.
Work efficiently and effectively with a co-guide, when applicable.
