Our students come first, and we aim to create a safe, welcoming environment. Our instructors assess individuals’ goals and abilities to create a supportive learning environment for all. Your personal success and safety are our yardsticks of acheivement, and our philosophy is that your early experiences on the river set the tone for the rest of your paddling career.
Our high volume of repeat students demonstrates the value we place on helping you where you are in the sport, concern for your safety, and having fun.
Tom McEwan, Director
Sarah Park, Director
Tom and Sarah handpick their instructors, all of whom demonstrate a passion for people, teaching, kayaking and the outdoors; their skills and attitude reflect the spirit of Liquid Adventures. All instructors, at minimum, have American Canoe Association (ACA) Whitewater certification and have undertaken. Most have undertaken Wilderness First Aid, American Red Cross CPR and First Aid courses. Those who lead our trips and teach intermediate courses also have ACA Advanced Whitewater and Advanced Swiftwater certifications.
We pride ourselves in the caliber of our instructors and are confident to place you in their safe, well-trained hands. In fact, Tom McEwan, one of a handful of ACA Kayak Instructor Trainers in the country, is certified at the ACA’s highest available level and is qualified to certify other developing instructors.
We always like to meet certified instructors who have an interest in joining
our team. If you are interested in joining the Liquid Adventures team
of instructors, please email an application form and call our office. We’d love to hear from you.
