 Jim CoffeyFavourite Rivers: The Rio de Oro in Mexico, and the Upper Pacuare in Costa Rica.

Most memorable rapid: Cascada de Truchas Mexico. I had looked at running Truchas for 4 years and finally knocked it off when all the right conditions converged. It is a big and intimidating 18m but with the right crew and line it turned out to be soft, graceful and memorable.

Apart from operating rafting canoeing and kayaking programs in Canada, Esprit operates winter paddling trips specializing in OC1 and OC2 in Mexico and Costa Rica.

Dreaming of creating “Voyageur Pointe” in 2017… after the loss of our basecamp due to fire in 2016 I now set my sites on building Eastern Canada’s greatest paddling centre… stay tuned for more details.
