PKR Kayak Chile Trips Referral Plan

PKR’s strategic recruiting plan offers industry professionals competitive commissions and options to guide for pay with room and board options too. We provide legals, trip infrastructure, training, and riverside facilites… you invite your guests to experience it all.

Primary Aims. To network with international adventure guide and kayak instructors. Part of PKR’s sustainable business plan is to recruit and retain great person’s of high character and professionalism. 

What skills qualify you? Guides and instructors must be trained on the level of adventure they choose to lead. Most instructors opt to instruct only beginner and intermediate whitewater as that is their core base of guests. While, others may have a base of guests for advanced rivers and waterfall running. And then many are keen to guide our non-kayaking multi-sport adventure trips with no kayak experience.

How much does kayak instructor week cost? Trip prices vary based on the particular trip and the lodging a guest chooses. Qualified guide-instructors will receive a 50% DISCOUNT from the trip and lodging they select.
