David is a highly accomplished kayaker, educator and business owner based in Co. Mayo. His kayaking has taken him all over the world on expeditions and as a kayak guide – from the Faroe Islands to Antarctica and of course almost all of the Irish coast. He has been a Leave No Trace trainer since 2013 and has been a member of the Marine Explorers Education team since 2017. He loves nothing better than sharing his stories and videos of whales and penguins with wide eyed students as they learn about both local and far off shores. David is a passionate educator and believes strongly in experiential learning and the power of connection to our environment to promote both physical and mental wellbeing.
