Located in Victoria, British Columbia on beautiful Vancouver Island, Ocean River is one of the premier speciality kayak and adventure companies in North America. Brian Henry, the founder & current owner, has been running Ocean River since 1981, and Ocean River continues to be recognised as one of the most significant outdoor/paddlesports instructional & tours provider in North America.
Corri Lobbezoo (they/she) is a Level One Paddle Canada instructor and an AOG with SKGABC. They love facilitating experiences that engage the body, mind and spirit, and empowering others to learn new skills in playful ways.
Corri is a committed nerd, with a BA in History and Linguistics, an MA in Social History, and a lifetime with their nose in books. A lover of the water but avoider of sports, she was surprised to discover an aptitude for race kayaking on the Otonabee River in Ontario. Moving back to the west coast, Corri took a sea kayaking course with Ocean River and got pulled away from classroom teaching into outdoor education.
In addition to kayak guiding and instructing, Corri is also a writer, life coach, and meditation teacher. She finds poetry, story and deep presence on the water and in Mother Nature. You can connect with Corri at www.corrilobbezoo.com
