Sea Kayak Day Guide / Lodge Host
We are seeking an energetic individual to fill a part-time Lodge Host position at our kayak-friendly B&B: Discovery Islands Lodge. We are located near Surge Narrows at the remote north end of Quadra Island, BC. Discovery Islands Lodge is owned and operated by Coast Mountain Expeditions, a local/family company that has been operating since 1987.
The Lodge Host job is a part-time position (3 consecutive days/week). As the caretaker of the bed & breakfast, you will be responsible for breakfast preparation (for 18-20 people), welcoming guests, billings & payments, general cleaning, laundry and room changeovers, kayak rentals, as well as serving as a source of local knowledge for guests. You will have some assistance from two other full-time lodge staff who live on-site (who are primarily kayak guides).
Living on-site is not a requirement for this position, although basic overnight accommodation is available during the 3-day shift. Our ideal candidate is personable, attentive to detail, enthusiastic about wilderness exploration, and eager to be part of a dedicated team. Preference will be given to candidates hoping to return for multiple seasons as well as to those who have local knowledge of the area.
Season: June – September (start and end dates somewhat flexible). 3 days (24 hours)/week, with the potential for more. This is an early-morning shift: 7:00am – 3:30pm.
Please send your cover letter and resume to: email@example.com. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
