Renewal on the Sea Otter Coast

David Pinel is the managing owner of West Coast Expeditions (WCE), an adventure tourism company focused on educational marine experiences in the Kyuquot area since 1972. WCE is recognized by Destination Canada for providing a Canadian Signature Experience and was Canada's first kayak tour company to achieve the Green Tourism Gold Award.
