Ryan Rushton


As a resident of Southeast Alaska, Ryan is fortunate to live and work on one of the world’s most rugged and beautiful coastlines.  Inspired by the sea, mountains and people he shares the water, his aim is to help develop boaters to the level where they have their own amazing experiences.  Ryan’s approach is student-focused and influenced by coaching at top symposia, leading expeditions along remote coastlines, training instructors/guides and running courses around N. America. “I really enjoy working with paddlers at all stages of their development – helping them achieve their goals – evening what they didn’t think possible! No matter how serious you are about your boating, it’s all about having fun, discovering and having and adventure!”. Ryan is an ACA L5 Instructor Trainer and Swiftwater Rescue Instructor and a BCU 5* Leader.
