Kayak, Hike & Wildlife Cruise Guides
All Sunny Cove guides go through a three week training program in early May that prepares them to lead clients safely on our Alaskan waters. Training topics will include paddling technique and rescue skills, leadership skills, trip logistics, reading weather and water conditions, local knowledge about plants/wildlife/history, company policies, and risk mitigation. We have certified ACA (American Canoe Association) Instructors on staff who facilitate our training program. Completion of training is required to become a member of the Sunny Cove Kayaking guide team. Once completed, first year staff are promoted to an Assistant Guide where you will assist and shadow senior guides to learn the logistics and terrain of all our trips. Once you and SC management feel confident in your ability to facilitate a trip, you will move into a guide position.
Sunny Cove guides work from early May through early September with the primary busy season occurring from mid-June through mid-August. The day to day schedule is very dynamic for guides and changes week to week as we offer a number of different trips, but guides can expect to be fairly busy with few days off during our prime season and have a little more free time to explore during the shoulder season. Extended periods of time off are generally not available.
Once in a guide position, staff generally start off working our shorter trips as they get comfortable in our environment. New guides are able to work up to more challenging and longer trips during their first summer and will have the opportunity to lead each of our day trips. Lead Guides status is obtainable upon returning to Sunny Cove for multiple seasons. Lead Guides facilitate our multi-day kayak camping expeditions so while it is not possible to lead one of these trips as a first year guide, there may be opportunities to join one of these trips as an assistant guide or shadow.
Sunny Cove offers free, communal, bunk house style accommodations to our staff. Guides will have a bed in a shared yurt and all staff share a centralized cabin that has our kitchen, bathroom, and common area for hanging out. Pets and smoking are not allowed on Sunny Cove property. All staff living on property share in a chore rotations and pay a $100 housing deposit that is returned at the end of employment assuming that staff member contributed to a positive living environment.
Sunny Cove does provide all necessary guide gear, but interns will be responsible for providing their own personal paddling gear which includes proper guiding attire, PFD (personal floatation device), spray skirt, VHF radio, and boots (a full list will be provided).
