Frank Witter

Kayak Guide

Frank’s passion and love for the outdoors was first sparked when he left his homeland of Germany in 2006 to travel and live in numerous countries around the world. Making a more permanent move to Canada and starting out as a dogsledding guide opened the doors to becoming an outdoor leader and kayak guide. The west coast of Vancouver Island has been his home for 9 years now.

While being out by the coast, he spends his time as a contract sea kayak guide for multi-day expedition style tours and outdoor educational programs for schools. Frank also works to restore wild salmon habitat for a nonprofit organisation in his home town, Ucluelet.

Frank holds a Level 3 Kayak Guide certificate issued by the Sea Kayak Guides Alliance of British Columbia and is working towards becoming a guide trainer.

One of Frank’s favourite quotes that inspires him and influences him in many ways is: ‘You often feel tired, not because you’ve done too much, but because you’ve done too little of what sparks a light in you’.
