“I’m turning 30 in a couple of weeks, and just started feeling like life is too short to not spend it doing something I’m passionate about.¬†Donal was my guide, and was incredible to paddle with!¬† I’ve kayaked both independently and with a number of groups in many different regions, and Moondance gave me one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. I appreciated Donal’s expertise and friendliness, and was surprised to leave my trip having learned so much!” – An enthused paddler.

I have lead all kinds of outdoor experiences including rock climbing, backcountry skiing, trail work, backpacking, canyoneering, snowshoeing, and sea kayaking. I believe that people learn best when they are challenged, and that the intersection of our minds, bodies, and environment provides the best venue for growth. By empowering others through encouragement and good role-modeling strong leadership has the power to change the world, one person at a time.
