Guide at a Glance
Bryson, Quebec, Canada
I have been on the Ottawa river for the past 17 years as a Rafting guide. The first 2 years were on the Gatineau river. I got into Rafting through a business man who knew nothing about that sport. He was the typical business man. He was searching for people who would do the raft guide training for that new Rafting company on the Gatineau river.
I jumped into that training with no experience at all. After the training, that business man put me as a river manager and in charge of all the raft guides. I was very surprised! I took that challenge at 21 years old. Those responsibilities forced me to be the best, or at least to try to be the best, example to follow.
After that first and very emotional year as a raft guide, I knew I wanted to do this for the rest of my life. 10 years ago, I bought the company I worked for.
