Seán Finucane
Paddle Canada Kayak Instructor
Now Victoria!
Exploring the outdoors, cycling or skiing

Seán has been paddling on and off for 30+ years in canoes and kayaks, on both flatwater and whitewater.  He started in Ontario doing canoe trips to enjoy the beauty of the provincial parks.  He now lives in Victoria and is more focused on sea kayaking, which is one of the best ways to enjoy the beautiful scenery around Vancouver Island from a new perspective.  Seán is a Paddle Canada Level 1 Sea Kayak instructor.  He loves teaching, and as a professor is used to breaking down complex skills in to manageable, easy to learn pieces.  When not paddling, Seán can likely be found running, hiking, cycling or skiing, and just generally being outdoors as much as possible.
