Fluent in German, Silke has six years experience guiding international visitors on kayak tours to Vancouver Island’s west coast and the mainland’s Sunshine Coast. BC is home for her and kayaking is how she spends the best months of the year. Photography, studying natural history, and almost anything to do with the outdoors are some of her favourite past times. When she’s not on the ocean you can find her on one of many mountains. Silke has completed a Diploma in Adventure Tourism and a BA in Tourism Management. Sustainability in tourism has been a focus in her studies and continues to be in her career in tourism. Silke is a certified Level 3 kayak guide with the SKGABC, is a Level 2 Canoe Instructor and has taken several backcountry courses.
