What you'll do

Spend a morning or afternoon exploring the flora and fauna in and around the lakes of Park City, UT!

If you don't see a date/time that suits you, contact me! We continue to work with various industry experts including NOLS, Global Rescue and the Wilderness Medicine Institute to develop and implement health safety protocols.

I am a licensed professional river Guide and have been on the water for over thirty years now with an eye toward safety in support of my Guest's fun. We will start our experience together reviewing safety on and around water. Once our safety review is complete, we will head out on our paddle boards. If you haven't paddle boarded before, don't worry, we'll take it slowly and work together to get you comfortable on the board.

Once comfortable on your board, we will explore the shore line seeking out various flora and fauna of "Sagebrush Country" here in Park City, UT.

When you are ready, we will stop along the shore and have a healthy homemade snack by Shawn and Alta.

The time will fly...You may see Bald Eagles, Deer, Moose, Elk and more!

So spend a morning or afternoon with me exploring nature by paddle board!

Shawn is an excellent host. Listened well, and adjusted our experience as the time and my ability warranted. With his guidance I was quickly able to gain confidence in my ability and enjoy the wonderful surroundings. He provides thoughtful recommendations and guidance and has excellent knowledge of the area. I highly recommend him as a guide, and will be back!

The only word to describe my experience with Shawn and his lovely daughter Alta: WOW! I was blown away by their knowledge, kindness, down-to-earth-ness, loving and hard working attitudes. Shawn went well out of his way to come pick me up in Salt Lake City just so that I didn’t have to Uber. I so appreciate their generosity and extensive knowledge of the river basin we were paddle boarding in. I feel like I became so much better acquainted with the area and my trip to SLC would not have been complete without this experience.

Shawn is a great read of people as well as an excellent guide. Very tuned into what each of (the 3) of us needed. We were completely at ease heading into the experience based on his prep communications and the muffin finish was a welcome extra treat. I would do his fly fishing if we were here longer. Recommend him highly!

We had a fantastic time and experience with Shawn. He was so welcoming and a wonderful teacher we walked away feeling proud of ourselves and so thankful to Shawn. We can't wait to go home and buy some paddle boards!

We had a good day on the water. Shawn is nice. It was fun learning to paddle. The lake we visited was different than the photos. It was a reservoir surrounded by rolling hills with sagebrush.
