Sea Kayaking with Ilene

It’s simple: I’m a kayak guide and instructor. The trip-of-a-lifetime awaits you! Join me for an unforgettable sea kayaking adventure in the breathtaking wilderness of Alaska or tropical paradise in the Caribbean of Panama. Why wait? Let’s go!


I love sea kayaking. It is my life’s passion and I am thrilled to have made it my life’s work.

Sea kayak guiding and instructing offers me the special opportunity to share my passion with anyone who is excited to experience the rhythm of a true adventure in these beautiful and remote places.


Magical moment in Heather Bay, Alaska

I feel at home paddling in a sea kayak. For as long as I can remember I have felt the magic and the full potential of my life while outdoors, surrounded by nature. After receiving a sea kayak guide certification in British Columbia, Canada, I have guided in Patagonia, Chile, as well as Prince William Sound, Alaska and the Caribbean of Panama since 2010/11. Pretty surprising for a girl from Philadelphia, eh?

There’s nothing I love more than to help create exceptional adventure holidays, once-in-a-lifetime trips to discover and explore the wonders of nature and yourself, and to experience the joys and fun of learning about sea kayak touring and camping.

Allow the photos and videos to inspire you. Photos can’t do these amazing and majestic places justice. You’ve got to experience them for yourself. I’m here to help make it happen for you. Why wait? Let’s go!
