Stehekin Valley Ranch runs guided kayak tours on Lake Chelan. Trips are 1.5 – 2 hours in length. The guide is responsible for picking up guests at the Ranch or at the Landing and transporting them to and from the put-in. Guide will provide basic instruction for operation of the kayak as well as paddling technique. During the tour the guide will give a running commentary on the local history and environmental points of interest. The guide is also responsible for the safety of all participants and will be required to demonstrate the ability to perform a rescue and other emergency procedures prior to being signed off to lead trips. First Aid and CPR certifications required.
This is a part time position, and will be combined with other position(s) in order to make enough hours for a full time job. We will not hire a guide who is not willing to work additional jobs, as we do not have sufficient housing to accommodate part time workers.
Given the positions we have left to fill, it would be extremely helpful for our kayak guide to have one or all of the following.
Additional skill/certifications which – while not required – are quite helpful include:
Class B CDL with passenger endorsement. General carpentry, plumbing, electrical, and/or automotive experience.
