Michael Collins

Michael Collins

Tour Guide

Mike is a native of Arizona and a lover of the great outdoors. A fortunate Father of five and brother of six, Mike has been blessed by a beautiful family and a life full of adventures. Professionally Mike worked as a sales executive for a high-end developer of private golf clubs and real estate around the Southwest United States and Mexico. This allowed Mike to see and experience numerous sought after destinations. No matter how special and appreciated, at the core of his adventurous heart, Mike has always enjoyed coming back to Lake Powell and the surrounding Grand Circle. Mother nature is the great artist of existence and nowhere else compares, in Mike’s estimation, to the splendor and maze of wonder she has created here. It’s still a place a person can get lost into the primal bosom of Mother Nature. Mike is honored with the title of adventure guide and the opportunity to escort visitors from around the world into her beauty. He was also presented Guide of the Year by the Mayor of Page, Arizona.

Nick Messing

Tour Guide

Nick, being the outdoorsman and jack of all trades he is, has a major problem; the undeniable need for amazing experiences and adventures. It undoubtedly started in the womb, but really took hold with the freedom of college. Since being born and raised in Tucson, Arizona is advantageous to embracing the natural world, the benefits of living in Arizona has lead him to explore many of the off trail and uncommon places all over the Southwest. Nick is unequal parts: Business Owner, Overlander, Mountain Biker, Kayak Guide, EMT, former Sheriff’s Deputy and NFL Stuntman. With expertise and experience like that, the only guiding outfit he’d consider being part of had to be the best: Lake Powell Adventure Co.

Jiho Sohn

Jiho Sohn

He first came to Lake Powell in the summer of 2011. He and his friends turned down the houseboat and decided try something different–lets kayak Lake Powell! Who would have guessed the kayak tour on Lake Powell would be a life-changer for all them. With over two decades (omfg) in the web development business he uses PHP, CSS, SEO, design, and a sense of humor (LOLMAO Tech) as his main arsenal to spread the awesomeness he experienced with Lake Powell Adventure Co. on the “interwebz”.
