About Us

 

Duncan Greene


I have been mountaineering for longer than I can remember. I class myself as a Mountaineer rather than a climber, as I enjoy journeying in the hills and using rock skills to enhance that enjoyment rather than pure rock climbing on a crags. I first qualified  as a Summer Mountain Leader, then later as a Winter Mountain Leader. I also hold, the Single pitch rock climbing award,

Along with loving being in the mountains I also enjoy paddle sports. Whether it be lake paddling,  river or Seas.

I have been kayaking for over 40 years.  I have paddled extensively in Great Britain,  enjoying all aspects of the sport from Surfing the North East Coast, river paddling throughout England and Wales.

I am now predominantly a  Sea kayaker. I have Sea paddled throughout Great Britain from the Outer Hebrides to the isles if Scilly and most bits in between. I have also paddled and lead expeditions in Alaska, Norway, Croatia and Greece.  I love leading groups watching them develop as individuals and as a group during multi day trips to unreachable places.

 I hold  the British Canoeing Advanced Sea Kayak Leader and Advanced Sea Kayak Coach awards plus i am a ISKGA Advanced Sea Kayak Guide. I am a BC provider for all of the BC Sea Kayak personal performance awards, BC Sea Leader Award and all of the BC guide modules.

I am a sea kayaker first and foremost; however, I am also responsible for all the admin associated with our business Greene Adventures and a qualified Sports Massage Therapist.

I had not sat in a boat until 2011, since then I have spent more time in a sea kayak than I have in an office.

I have always been involved with sport so becoming a kayaker and outdoor adventurer was a natural step, I am always up for a challenge.

I have paddled extensively in the UK from Isle of Scilly to the Isle of Barra and pretty much everything in between. I have also jointly run expeditions in  Alaska, Norway, Croatia and Greece.

I have lead my own trips and expeditions throughout Scotland and Northern England and Norway.  I am a qualified Sea Kayak Coach. I may not have been paddling for many years but I have paddled vast amounts in a small time and always looking forward to the next adventure.
