About the Author
During the summer of 1980, Dr. Scott Cunningham circumnavigated Nova Scotia in an open canoe. It was a voyage that changed his life, and in 1982 he left his job in molecular biology and formed Coastal Adventures where, along with his partner Gayle Wilson, he runs sea kayaking tours and courses along the shores of Atlantic Canada. Scott has also sea kayaked extensively in Europe and on Canada’s west coast, and is Level 4 coach (sea) with the British Canoe Union. In 1998 he developed the first national sea kayaking program for Paddle Canada and is a senior instructor trainer. He lives in Tangier, Nova Scotia.
