This person must be able to coordinate many logistical details while maintaining a friendly, relaxed & supportive presence in the office.  Housing is not included for this position, and the LC will be responsible for securing their own personal housing and transportation in Seward.

About Kayak Adventures Worldwide

We are a small, value based sea kayaking company, that focuses on inspiring guests to join us in reclaiming an active stewardship of our natural world through purposeful, educational sea kayaking tours. We believe that our business profit is secondary to: the safety & education of our guests, the health of the wilderness environment we enjoy & the health and safety of the wildlife we visit. Therefore we seek a clientele that desires information and education, rather than just access to wildlife and wilderness areas. We run the most extensive guide training (over 3+weeks) in all of Alaska, and focus on our company culture which is deeply rooted in our personal core values, desire to protect the natural world and foster a supportive & inspiring work environment. We typically employ a Logistics Coordinator and 10-12 guides each summer to run half-day, full-day, and multi-day sea kayaking trips in Resurrection Bay and Kenai Fjords National Park.
