Naturalist/Wilderness Guides

Our naturalist guides interact with guests and guide them in various adventure activities: hiking, heli-hiking, glacier travel, rafting, and sportfishing at Winterlake Lodge – and sea-kayaking, hiking, and interpretive skills at Tutka Bay Lodge.

All our guides are expected to be Wilderness First Responder Certified, Swift Water Rescue Certified, competent in outdoor skills, demonstrate exceptional people skills, and exhibit leadership abilities. Helicopter and dog mushing experience is a plus.We are interested in remarkable outdoor guides who have the compassion and communicative skills to inspire and entertain our guests.

All our employees are expected to contribute to some of the chores of daily life at camp. It is important to us that you understand the full scope of life in an Alaska remote lodge. Our hours are long (the sun doesn’t go down for the majority of the summer), our workload can be intense, and our guests are incredible. It is adventurous and rewarding work for the right candidate.

Guides work a variable, flexible workweek. Positions are available May 1 to Sept 30 for Tutka Bay, and June 1 to Sept 30 for Winterlake. Winterlake offers a winter season January 15 to April 15.
