Manager and lead guide Andi is ACA (American Canoe Association) certified sea kayak instructor, and an enthusiastic marine naturalist. Andi and her crew are dedicated to helping you have a great, safe day on the water, learning new or refining your paddle skills and emphasizing a better understanding of the natural world around you.
