Guide Bio

GroundSea Adventures was founded by Alex in the British Virgin Islands. He has spent decades exploring and enjoying the islands’ natural wonders.

A former journalist, I worked as a news reporter for Reuters, Associated Press, BBC and the Guardian among other media outlets before spending 17 years as Founding Editor of the international surf travel magazine, The Surfer’s Path. The magazine’s work took him all over the surfing world and one of the many lessons learned along the way is that there’s probably no where more wonderful than in the BVI!

I have edited a number of outdoor-focused guide books, including for Dorling Kindersley (How to Surf), Low Pressure Publishing (World Stormrider Guide) and, locally, ALookingGlass (BVI Hiking Guide).

These days I enjoy dividing my time between work behind a desk and sharing the wonders of the outdoors with visitors to the BVI, showing them the islands I know and love so much whether it be in the surf, hiking or paddling in its pristine waters.
