Former co-owner Wayne Marrs first came to McCarthy, Alaska in 1998 and fell in love with the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. His passion for the outdoors is only matched by his desire to share that experience with others. Wayne’s true passion is discovery. He has been rafting, climbing and trekking throughout the world, including Myanmar, Uganda, Jordan, Indonesia, Madagascar and Nicaragua to name a few of his more obscure adventures. His favorite river run is the headwaters of the Nile, where one rapid has been gauged at 1.2 million cubic feet per second! In addition to his rafting experience, Wayne is also an accomplished climber, working with St. Elias Alpine Guides, an Alaska mountain climbing company also located in McCarthy.
