Do you want to live, work and play in one of the most beautiful places in the world?

Kayak Adventures is a small, environmentally and educationally focused sea kayaking company, based in Seward, Alaska. We typically employ 10 - 11 sea kayak guides each summer season to run half-day, full-day, and multi-day sea kayaking trips in Resurrection Bay and Kenai Fjords National Park. We focus on having a supportive, open and engaging company culture while inspiring our guests to reclaim an active stewardship of the natural world through our educational tours.

Seward is one of Alaskas premier adventure towns, with incredible hiking, biking, and running trails easily accessible from our front door. The Kenai Fjords National Park (where we run the majority of our tours) is one of the most productive marine ecosystems in the world during the summer, with abundant wildlife & large tidewater glaciers! This place provides our guides with amazing opportunities to facilitate important, transformative outdoor experiences for our guests.

We run the most extensive paid guide training in the area, which is required of all employees (new and returning guides), and lasts for about three weeks, starting in late April. Our tours focus on client education & inspiration, and we strive to be conservation leaders within our small Alaska community. As members of 1% for the Planet we donated over $10,000 last year to local non-profits working towards important environmental conservation efforts in Alaska. We ask guides to take an active role as educators & supportive team members.

Guides must commit to the entire summer, through early-September. During guide training, guides are responsible for focusing on their learning and education. After guide training, they are responsible for packing trips, leading trips, food preparation, unpacking / inventorying / repairing gear, and driving trips to and from the beach. Housing is provided and other responsibilities go along with that. All of this is outlined in detail in our application. This will most likely be the hardest job you'll ever love. You will work long hours, sometimes in challenging conditions... but the rewards are countless and totally worth the effort.

The position of kayak guide will require a good degree of physical fitness, solid upper body strength, and a very sociable personality. You will be interacting with the public on a daily basis, and showing them what is so amazing about our little portion of Alaska! Learn more about the position and our company culture on our website: www.kayakak.com and please feel free to shoot us an email anytime with questions.

If you are passionate about sharing the outdoors with others, and making a difference in this world, give us a shout!
