Meet Our Team: Dan!
Those who know me best will attest that I revel in unconventional exploration while taking the wilder roads less travelled. These roads have often and thankfully led me to some of the most stunning places on Earth and have offered me an abundance of unique experiences that I now happily share with my guests. As a zoologist with a nomadic spirit and drive for adventure, I have spent the last decade of my life guiding wildlife and adventure-based tours in all seven continents from the luscious jungles of Central America, to the vast outback of Australia and even to the ice-covered deserts of Antarctica.
While it is a rare thing indeed for me to stay grounded anywhere for too long, I have found my “permanent” habitat in beautiful Vancouver, Canada where I work as a boat captain during the summer months leading whale watching tours through the Pacific Northwest while hopscotching around the world guiding adventures with Detours.
As an openly gay world traveller I am always eager to learn from and engage with the LGBT community in whatever region of the world I wander into. For the past 10 years I’ve been a member of the Detours family and have never lost sight of the supreme privilege I’ve been given to build connections within our international gay community. As a tour leader I find my greatest joy when I witness the thrill of discovery shared between my guests and seeing those connections survive for years to come.
