Scott Depung

Guide

ACA Kayaking Level I
Certified Lifeguard
First Aid/CPR

Born in Western Michigan, Scott grew up camping, hiking, canoeing & sailing. He volunteered his summers at Camp Ao-Wa-KiYa in New Era, MI, where he taught 7-17 year olds how to camp, canoe, sail and water ski. After graduating high school, he joined the Navy, where he was a Sonar Technician on one of the world’s finest nuclear-powered submarines. After the navy he settled in Charleston, SC where you can find him enjoying any one of our beautiful beaches, paddling in our salt marshes or on one of our barrier islands. As a steward of the outdoors he has a strong passion to learn and teach as much as possible about the outdoors and all the plants and animals in it.

In addition to being a naturalist guide, Scott is an instructor for the Veterans Sea Kayak Resiliency Program.  Developed by Coastal Expeditions, this program is designed to help local veterans with post-traumatic stress re-assimilate into civilian life through the development of kayaking skills and social strategies.

“My daughter and I had Scott, our naturalist tour guide, all to ourselves for our fabulous sunset tour off of Folly. He was a terrific instructor and a very knowledgeable guide to the estuary’s bird and plant life. I highly recommend this particular tour, as it allowed us to paddle out for an hour in daylight, linger quietly while watching the sun set at the horizon line in a show of color, and then paddle back peacefully by moonlight (and a few small headlamps). Truly a one of a kind experience that both of us will cherish forever!”
