Pax Templeton


Pax grew up split between Maine and New Mexico, spending his free time exploring the desert, mountains, rivers, and ocean that these great states have to offer. After earning his degree from the University of Vermont, he took up the nomadic seasonal life and has never looked back. Always up for an adventure, he has spent his time since ski bumming in Lake Tahoe, brewing beer in Ecuador, hiking in the Himalayas, and lounging on Asian beaches. He also spent last winter exploring the hot jungles of Colombia.  It’s his goal to set foot on every continent before he dies and he only has two more to go.

An avid nature lover, Pax moved to the San Juans for the amazing wildlife viewing opportunities and jaw dropping vistas. But like anything good in life, these are things that are best when shared, making his job here as a sea kayak guide one of his favorite to date. He is excited to be able to explore them and share them with you from the seat of a kayak!
