Meet Your Guide - Kelly Aspinall

Raised on Vancouver Island, Kelly’s life has long been led around the ocean. He developed a fondness for the ocean that grew throughout his childhood, and began guiding amid the inside waters of Nanoose Bay shortly thereafter as a teenager. Although guiding pulled him around much of the province, he diligently offset the busy summer seasons by attending school at the University Of British Columbia, securing a degree in Environment and Sustainability. When he’s not at the helm, you’ll usually find him free diving in the depths below, or exploring the veined river systems of our rugged coast, searching for Steelhead with his rod and camera in tow.

Welcome.
