Breakwater Expeditions prides itself on hiring professional guides with an array of previous experiences.

Our team comes from a variety of backgrounds: they have knowledge about environmental issues, international travel, the great outdoors and outdoor living, canoeing or sea kayaking skills, and have experience with specific populations. Our guides understand what it takes to create the right trip for each client. Our client population ranges from school groups, orchestrated parent/child trips, non profits, special needs, and groups with a common thread. The common denominator is that each guide enjoys sharing their passion with our dynamic clients.

It you believe that you have what it takes, please explore the following documents and learn how to apply.

Current Job Opportunities

Our years of experience have taught us to:

Set up the best team for your trip.

We pair the right group of professionals to best support each group.

Make the right calls at the right time.

The details matter. We value in-the-moment creativity, flexibility, and inventiveness.

Prioritize logistics & safety

We set up. We frame. Beginning, middle and end, safety is always first.

Prevent burnout

We place a cap on the number of trips we take each year so that we can stay genuinely enthusiastic about what we do.

I had never experienced a trip like this before and it gave me a new dimension to myself. I think all parents need to participate in a trip like this with their child.


I highly recommend Breakwater. Seeing / hearing glaciers and whales close up made this trip memorable and special - for us probably a once in a lifetime experience.


You guys are amazing! I can honestly tell you I was in the “here-and-now” for 99.9% of the trip. Most importantly, you gave me and my son the opportunity to create wonderful memories we will share for a lifetime!


….your intricate planning made something that I thought would be beyond my comfort zone so much easier than I could ever have imagined.


Breakwater Expeditions did an over-the-top job. The guides came across as genuine, knowledgable and safety aware. They made the trip both fun and interesting.
