Boat Guide Sandspit (Full Time)

Description

The Moresby Explorers Ltd.
Temporary, Contract
This is a full time position from May to September, based in Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve in Haida Gwaii. Duties include driving Hurricane Zodiacs with up to 12 guests, teaching people about the history of the area, guiding people through long-abandoned native village sites and forest walks while making sure everyone is safe and having a great time.

In the early season you will be learning from senior guides by helping out on tours, but after we decide you are ready, you will be running tours alone, fully responsible for decisions concerning safety, weather, etc. On days when you are not guiding, you will be expected to help out with equipment maintenance, building projects, and other jobs around the office. Because we start our tours about an hour’s drive from Sandspit where the office is, you will also need to drive a 15 passenger van on radio controlled logging roads. Although previous experience is not necessary, you need to be able to learn quickly and figure things out independently. Requirements for the job are Small Vessel Operator Proficiency certificate, MEDA3, Class 4 driver’s licence and at least 40 hours of Wilderness First Aid (we prefer 80-100 hours and suggest Slipstream).

We provide room and board. We pay wages on a monthly salary basis dependant on experience.
