James Rodger

Manager for: California & Oregon
Guide for: Galapagos & Chile

Have you heard the one aboot the Canadian who migrated to California for the summer? That’s right, our California and Oregon Regional Manager, James, has come down to foster the camaraderie of a tight California rafting guide crew and wow everyone with his off-the-charts Karaoke renditions of Sinatra. James thrives on providing an amazing and exciting experience for his guests despite the challenges of working in an outdoor environment.

”We have just returned from an O.A.R.S.-arranged multisport adventure on the Futaleufu River in Chilean Patagonia. We had a fantastic time. I wanted to pay special compliment to the excellence of James Rodger, who served as our guide throughout. He has a very pleasing easy-going friendly demeanor that keeps everyone enjoying themselves. He guided our raft through the many Class IV and Class V rapids of the Futaleufu with great skill and outstanding preparation of each person in the raft to make each of us understand what was coming and what was needed of us. Our trip included kayaking, hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. Each adventure demonstrated James' expertise and talent as a guide. Most important of all James watched out for our safety at all times. He displayed excellent judgment to match his outstanding skill. We could not have asked for a better person to guide our trip.” Bill and Barbara Brant Earlysville, VA
