Hey there Workaway Family!
We are two nature-nerds and generally fun loving people looking to work hard and enjoy the sights to be seen around New Zealand for the summer 2019-2020. We met living and working on a small island in the northwestern corner of Washington State, USA..... we fell in love with the islands' landscape and wildlife and have decided to set up homebase there!
We love cooking good food, hiking, sailing, reading, teaching people of all ages, whales, history, and, of course, traveling! Between the two of us we have spent time in Germany, Canada, Ecuador, Japan, Mexico, Thailand, Chile, the UK, Iceland, Portugal, and Spain.
Both of us are degreed biologists, but also hold our Captains licenses in the US. For work we are naturalists and captains aboard whale watches sharing orcas, humpbacks, seals, sea lions, birds, and other wildlife with visitors. When we are not working on the water we both manage various parts of the whale watch operation and spend time on maintenance projects. Sarah manages personnel and logistics of the various boats, while Erick manages the maintenance of our four vessel fleet.
We both have strong education backgrounds, having worked in camp and outdoor education settings with children and adults. We are also strong public speakers and excel in customer service settings. Both of us are comfortable with manual labor, and we are incredibly competent at following directions. Put us to work!
We look forward to meeting you, working with you, working for you, and learning from you. We can't wait for this adventure.
