Across America by canoe 2018 : Team mate wanted

March to October 2018

To paddle to the full 8000 kilometers - 5000 miles from the Pacific Ocean just south of Seattle to the Atlantic Ocean in Florida.

In March 2018, my team intends to paddle in two open canoes across America and we are looking for a possible male or female that would like to undertake a journey of this nature with me and my team. Other than the full adventure, i will be making a 60 minutes video of the journey. It is a long adventure, expected to take 220 days, so only those that would like this wild, by the river lifestyle please apply.

Please feel free to contact me on


A paddler or canoeist who speaks French or English would be ideal. Someone who has a deep passion for the outdoors, photography and a knowledge of film making would be essential. Someone who understands endurance and what their body is capable of and someone who feels that this is the right time to take on such a challenge.

This canoe and camping adventure will take the team across America’s waters to pursue their dream of discovery, through lakes and rivers. This incredible seven month journey will entitle the participants to engage in a close relationship with nature and will retrace the legendary explorations of many historical voyageurs such as Lewis and Clark, Louis Jolliet, Jacques Marquette as well as follow the traces of America’s First Nations.

I’m an adventurer and long distance canoeist from Canada who took part in the historical Canada expedition of the year 2015 «Les chemins de l’or bleu – The blue gold paths ». I had the privilege to cross Canada by canoe. This expedition started on April 25th 2015 in the icy waters of Lake of Two Mountains in Montreal and ended 7000 kilometers – 4400 miles away from its beginning journey on October 16th 2015 (175 days) along the coast of the Mackenzie River in Inuvik in the polar circle.

From May 19th to July 26th 2016 (70 days) I was part of the Pull of the North expedition and i paddled the Yukon River (3200 kilometers - 2000 miles) from the source at Lake Bennett, Canada to its mouth in the Bering Sea (Alaska).

This is a non-commercial expedition, costs will be shared equally between team members

This guy is legit. Good luck to you Martin.
