Pictured Rocks Adventure is guide owned and operated. We train and certify our own guides to ensure you are safe off and on the water, and able to enjoy the majesty of the Pictured Rocks National Lake shore in comfort and style while you visit.
Michigan native, and acting as owner trainer, lead guide and Dad, I started Pictured Rocks Adventure in 2019 after my previous season as Lake manager, and trainer on the Western side of Lake Superior for another Company. Starting out as a backpacker and mountaineer, I have thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail, and 1000 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail. I was trained in Northern California in 2013 at The Premier River guide school in Big Bar CA, Redwoods and Rivers. Guiding on the river for the various companies on the Trinity river, I certified as Swift water Rescue Tech, as well as White Water Rescue Tech Professional with Rescue 3 International. I also certified as a medical first responder and of course certified in first aid and cpr. I have over 500 hours guiding on Lake superior and many summers guiding on the river. On my hikes I practice ultralight backpacking and also would like to share what it is to experience the back country without a huge burden on your shoulders with you. I look forward to seeing you on the water and the trail this season.
