About Pictured Rocks Adventure

Pictured Rocks Adventure LLC is a 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 Lakeshore 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. Entering our second season after an amazing first we’re excited to share more adventures with our clients.”

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. </p >

I also certified as a medical first responder and of course certified in first aid and CPR, and am an ACA Instructor. I have over 1000 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 backcountry without a huge burden on your shoulders with you. I look forward to seeing you on the water and the trail this season.

Starting February 1st!
