Anthony and Lindsay began exploring together in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 2010. Long before alpine climbing, paddling remote beaches, and bagging peaks; we spent our time driving and hiking around Nova Scotia visiting secret beaches, looking at rocks, and ‘lighthouse bagging’.
Starting in 2017, we began exploring by sea-kayak, diving in head first with a 70+ day expedition along BC’s Central Coast. Since then we have logged hundreds of days kayaking in British Columbia, The Bahamas, and the Abel Tasman region of New Zealand.
In 2019 we moved to paradise on earth, Golden Bay, New Zealand, where we lived until the outbreak of COVID-19 forced us to come home early in March 2020. We explored the South Island’s Abel Tasman region extensively, climbing, hiking, and paddling as much as work and weather allowed.
Today we are enjoying another summer season on Read Island, trying to create a safe environment for families and groups to kayak during a time of social distancing, and dreaming about our own trips, big and little, yet to come.
Anthony works as a multi-day sea-kayak guide based off of Read Island for Coast Mountain Expeditions where he guides trips up BC’s stunning fjordlands and paddles with some of the most spectacular intertidal and marine life on the planet. Anthony is a certified SKGABC Kayak Guide and a CBVABC Level I Bear Guide.
Lindsay has worked for non-profits and community health organizations for the past few years and currently works with the Invasive Species Council of BC, runs her own grant writing business, and is completing a Master’s of Community Development at the University of Victoria. Despite all this she still manages to get out in the mountains or on the water most weekends! Lindsay is a certified CBVABC Level I Bear Guide.
Anthony and Lindsay are getting married in May 2021!
