Ecuador Pioneers Darcy Gaechter, Don Beveridge Back in Ecuador

-

- Advertisment -

They’re baaaaack! After leaving Ecuador kayaking outfitter Small World Adventures, paddling the entire length of the Amazon, and scouring the world for a new place to hang their kayak guiding shingle, Darcy Gaechter and Don Beveridge have returned to guide their beloved whitewater of Ecuador…

“After scouring the world for new kayaking destinations, we found many new and incredible places to kayak, but we’ve also realized that nothing quite compares to Ecuador,” says Darcy. “We haven’t found any other place with such a high concentration of excellent rivers and we can’t wait to get back and guide on our favorite runs again. I can already imagine my smile after landing “The Best Boof in the World” on the Upper Jondachi.”

The duo will be offering seven weeks of trips in 2015/2016 spread between December, February and March, and is keeping their schedule open in January to accommodate custom trips. The trip costs hover around $1,750 per person, including everything you need for one of the best boating weeks you could ever script.

The opening of their new venture comes barely a year after the two paddled the entire length of the Amazon River, so they’ll have plenty of stories to tell at night and on the shuttle.
“We’re super excited to be “coming home” to Ecuador,” Darcy says, “and we hope everyone helps spread the word.”
