Alex came to Wet Planet from the east coast, with a passion for understanding other cultures, ideas, and kayaking. He recently went on an exploration of Peru, living with local families and exploring their traditions and the jungles they call home. He first traveled the world while he served in the Marines, earning a purple heart. Shortly after, his drive to immerse himself in nature led him to fall in love with life on the water. Alex began guiding and kayaking at the Nantahala Outdoor Center, however it wasn’t until he began working at Wet Planet that he really developed as an incredible teacher.
There is never a dull moment with Alex, whether you find yourself immersed in a deep conversation or swapping jokes and tales of adventures. You’ll love spending the day with him, in a raft or in a kayak, on your next trip to White Salmon!
