We are located on the Aspotogan peninsula, 10 minutes from Hubbards, NS, or about 40 minutes from Halifax. Our office is relaxed, positive, friendly, and remote enough that you will need a car (or bicycle) to get here unless you live very close by or intend only to guide in other locales.

Candidates need Canadian citizenship, first aid training, a good driving record, and familiarity with navigation, safety, and the marine environment.
