Ketchikan, AK, United States / Services

Devon's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped us acquire more space at our marina to better accomodate our summer time guests on our tours and allows us to start building our own handmade, locally sourced cedar kayaks here in the off season.

Devon's story

I grew up on the ocean as a Navy brat and I love the sea. Although I never really had any roots growing up, Ketchikan, AK has become my home and I know I will be here for years to come. My future is here. 2 years ago I was given the opportunity to purchase the company. I was guiding for and I am proud to say that we have seen growth over the past two seasons I have been running the business here. In November I invested in taking a class in Port Townsend, WA with one of my guides and best friends, Tim. We spent 9 hours a day learning everything you need to know about building cedar strip kayaks from an artisan who has been doing this for a long time. We're incredibly excited to get to work building our own boats here in Ketchikan and truly set ourselves apart from the majority of our competition.
