About Scott Caspell

Kayak Guide

Biography

Scott is from central Ontario, the land of lakes, rivers and mixed hardwood forests. He developed a passion for the natural world early in life while exploring the nearby woodlands and waterways with family and friends.

Since 2001, Scott has been working as a guide, naturalist, wilderness trip leader and outdoor educator throughout Canada and abroad. With undergraduate degrees in environmental studies and outdoor experiential education, and a master’s degree in education, he now spends the majority of his time guiding in the Polar Regions and savors the joys of international travel.

Scott’s work in the high latitudes has included teaching high school in the Canadian province of Nunavut, leading multi-week canoe trips on Canada’s northern rivers, coordinating a youth leadership program on Baffin Island, and spending multiple seasons of ship-based guiding in Antarctica, Svalbard, Iceland and Greenland. He has also taught university courses in environmental education, worked as a community educator with street children in Uganda, and logged over 700 days leading backcountry canoeing, sea kayaking, dogsledding and hiking trips. What unites all these experiences is Scott’s love for sharing time with others in wild and beautiful places.

Whether by Zodiac, sea kayak, shipboard or on shore, he looks forward to enhancing and deepening guests’ knowledge, appreciation and overall experience of the spectacular places we visit.
