Looking for an exciting job in the outdoors?
Now hiring all positions for the 2023 season. Northern Waters offers guided sea kayaking tours on Lake Superior. Located at Michigan’s Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, we have a passion for kayaking that we strive to share with others. Positions are currently available both on and off the water.
Our Ideal Candidate
Hardworking, punctual, and friendly people with a passion for the outdoors. Strong communications skills are a must for both guiding and working in the office/land support. While new employees cannot be guaranteed a guiding position, sea kayaking experience is not necessary to become a guide. We will provide instruction and all the gear necessary to test out of our guide training program. We are motivated and excited to share the beauty of Lake Superior with our guests and hope you are, too!
Responsibilities vary between our guides and office staff. However, we prefer to cross-train our employees as to develop a variety of knowledge and skills about our trips and within the business. As a guide, expect to be handling gear, providing safety/paddling talks, and paddling alongside guests in one of Michigan’s most beautiful areas. In the office, you can expect to be answering calls, scheduling trips, watching weather reports, and maintaining a line of communication with our guides on the water.
