Paul Brown

Paul moved to Seward, Alaska, and began working on boats at the impressionable age of nineteen. A flurry of ambition awarded him with his first captain’s license two years later, and he spent the next few years working on the northern Gulf of Alaska. In 2006, Paul began running multi-day trips and research expeditions in Southeast Alaska, Coastal British Columbia, and Puget Sound, and he has since made a career out of exploring one of the world’s most interesting and challenging coastlines. When not sea-born, Paul, along with his wife Laurel, spend their time tending their small organic vegetable farm in Hood River, Oregon. Paul has a 500-ton masters license and USCG-certificates in medical care, first aid, firefighting, and meteorology.
