Meet Our 2012 Raft Guides – Part 1: Piers

11-IMGP0158"Hello all, my name is Piers Evans and I am back for round two! This will be my second year on the Exploits River with Paul at Rafting Newfoundland and I’m very excited to be back on the water.

For those who weren’t in my raft last summer, here’s my story in a couple of sentences. I was born and raised in Southern Ontario, but since the age of 17 I have been travelling and living all over the country and the world.

Two years ago I finished a diploma in outdoor adventure tourism at Algonquin College and Piers 2have spent the last three summers guiding on the water. It seems that I enjoy school, however, so my current situation has me living in St John’s studying at Memorial University in the off-season.

The season of 2012 is shaping up to be a great time to be a raft guide on the Exploits. There are some big plans in the works and some big fun to be had out there, I look forward to seeing you all out on the river this summer!"
