Matt has been paddling for more years than he remembers, but only came to see the light in 1997 when he was working for Outward Bound in the USA. Returning to the UK, Matt pursued the qualifications that would extend and diversify his paddling experiences. He is currently a BCU Level 4 Open Canoe coach. Matt likes to share his canoeing passion through enabling people to believe that they too can have the adventures he does.
Wilderness Canoe is Matt’s small company, based on the west coast of Scotland in a village only accessible by boat or on foot. Matt runs trips throughout the UK and further afield when possible in between he guides on the water and mountains of his local area.
