ALL ABOUT ME

Authentic Indigenous Tours

Welcome to Firstnationstourism aka SP First Nations Outdoor Tours, where we specialize in outdoor recreation tours.

We offer quality indigenous outdoor nature tours to various corporate clients, local schools and the traveler who is searching for that unique, one of a kind experience. 

I have 40+ years experience working in tourism as a guide to as recent managing a local 10 room outdoor lodge from

2003-09.

Married to Florence, we are proud to say we have 3 children and 7 grandchildren.

After watching my dad work as a fishing guide, hunter, trapper he instilled the love for nature and outdoors.

I graduated from the Maritime Forest Ranger School in 1983 and am familiar with the forest and trees.

I now work as a career counselor for indigenous people here in my First Nation of Metepenagiag since 2012.

Working in tourism has long been a dream of mine. I want to showcase our authentic indigenous hospitality and this special Miramichi region of New Brunswick that we call, our home. 

The clean fresh air and rivers makes this territory a truly special place to both visit and live upon.

As an Indigenous Tourism Owner, I know the best hidden spots. Join one of my guided tours and get ready for an unforgettable experience.
