What's happening.

A shift of focus: Lately we have been focusing our efforts on leading guided hiking and photography expeditions to Sable Island National Park Reserve by helicopter, plane and ship. We are a licensed Parks Canada tour company and our passion for the island grows stronger with each visit. 

Sable Island: Since 2017 we have been operating guided expeditions to Sable Island National Park Reserve. In order to develop tour offerings that are safe and responsible, we have been working with Parks Canada and the Sable Island Institute.  The Institute, an organization engaged in scientific, artistic and cultural programs of research and education, both on and off the island, is headed up by long time resident and naturalist Zoe Lucas.  By working closely with Parks Canada and the Institute, we are able to offer tours that are both educational and exciting, but also respectful of the wildlife and ecosystems that are unique and sensitive.  

Sustainability: Our trips to Sable are low-impact and our group sizes are small, but in our opinion that's really not enough.  To operate guided adventures in such a unique and sensitive place, great care is taken and an active role is in place to support the research projects that take place on the island.  This ensures our impact is a positive one.  For more information on the Sable Island Institute please visit: Sableislandinstitute.org 

Our Community.

We're very connected to our local community. Each trip we bring to visit Sable Island NPR provides funding for the Sable Island Institute www.sableislandinstitute.org and we work closely with the organization to assist with fundraising and help with ongoing research projects. Each year we put together a fundraising raffle that includes a trip for 2 to Sable Island.

We also take part in fundraising efforts to help people who might not have the opportunity to get outdoors and be active whenever we can.  Two on-going Kattuk projects are Bikes For the Bay and assisting with equipment drives for the outdoor program at Laing House.

Working with us.

Thank you for taking an interest in working with us. It's no surprise that we receive a number of emails each year from great folks who want to work outdoors.  As we grow and expand our offerings, we continue to look for additional guides. 

So, what are we looking for? You should be skilled and experienced, have a minimum of WRFA first aid, own your own guiding equipment, be physically fit and have a pleasant, positive attitude. You MUST view safety as the most important aspect of adventuring. We have not had a single major injury of any kind since opening 15 years ago and we intend to keep it that way. You also must be willing to pass an RCMP security check to work with children.  

If hired, you'll be expected to be reliable, on time, well-rested, properly prepared and to leave any negativity at home.  It should be noted that we are an inclusive organization that welcomes anyone (guides and customers) regardless of their cultural background, religion, gender or lifestyle.
