Ben Miltner established Gulf Island Kayaking as an owner-operated company in 1985. Gulf Island Kayaking is located on Galiano Island in British Columbia, Canada. Ben fell in love with the unique natural history of Costa Rica as a graduate student of geography in 1975. Years later, in 1987, Ben started offering sea kayak tours and inland natural history & birding tours in Costa Rica during B.C.’s winter months.
With Drake Bay Kayaking, Ben and his staff offer kayaking tours around Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula. Ben and his guides have extensive experience in kayaking skills, natural history, leadership, and Wilderness First Aid.
