Graham, President and Co-Owner, was born in Saskatchewan, and is a die-hard ‘Riders fan. He moved to Victoria in his teens and quickly became enthralled with the mountains and the river experiences that BC provides. He initially picked up paddling skills canoeing the voyager routes of Northern Saskatchewan, and has since applied them to the rivers of the Rockies and Coast Mountain Range.
With a zest for travel and a passion for the rafting industry, Graham has honed his skills on some of the most challenging rivers around the world. Over the course of his rafting career he has traveled to more than 30 countries and rafted commercially on every continent except for Antarctica.

Jennifer Cudnik or more commonly known by JC (only her Mom calls her Jennifer) grew up in Georgia and moved to California after studying at The University of Georgia to get her degree in Banking and Finance. After finding out that an office life was not for her she went to guide school and learned to guide a raft. After falling in love with what she was doing she has spent the last 10 years guiding all over the world. Places like New Zealand, Norway, Alaska, the Grand Canyon and Ethiopia have all had the pleasure of hearing her cackle of a laugh as she guides down the river. When not on the river you can find her at the CrossFit gym, working in the Emergency Medical Services or may catch a glimpse of her on TV in such shows as "The Resident" or "The Walking Dead". Her various life experiences make her able to handle whatever situation arises. She looks forward to seeing you on the water!
