In preparation for the 2022 spring and summer vacation season, Evolution Expeditions, the Colorado River’s best-in-class kayaking and hiking tour operator, currently seeks candidates for part-time and full-time kayak guide positions and shuttle guide positions.

Kayaking guides are responsible for safely leading visitors from across the globe on kayaking and hiking tours throughout the Black Canyon on the lower Colorado River, as well as assisting in river launches and retrievals. Shuttle guides are responsible for driving guests to and from Las Vegas.

Candidates interested in kayaking guide positions must also participate in a comprehensive outdoor training program to practice kayak rescues, emergency response training and gain knowledge of the area’s natural history. Guides will also learn operational procedures such as how to properly wash kayaks and set up designated beach areas for guests. Upon completion of this comprehensive training, each guide will also earn a wilderness first aid (WFA) certificate and a CPR certificate. The upcoming training for new guides will take place from Feb. 24 to March 1. In addition, new hires must also complete one to two weeks of shadowing experienced kayaking guides on tours as well.
