Davey Lubin holds a USCG-issued 100-ton master license, and has more than 40 years of experience on the waters, beaches, and wildlands of Southeast Alaska. He earned a BS in forest sciences, is licensed to teach biology in Alaska schools, and holds a master’s degree in mental health counseling. He fished commercially for ten years and worked as a federal foreign fisheries biologist and a US Forest Service botanist. He has been teaching Alaska natural history since 1986 and serves as a mental health clinician when he’s not on the water or with his hands in the Earth. In his wilderness tour business, Davey melds the grandeur of wild places, the elements, and magnificent wildlife to “infuse the healing nature of nature” into all his experiences.
Previously, Davey served on the State of Alaska TRAAK (Trails and Recreational Access for Alaska) Board, the SEAtrails (Southeast Alaska Trail System) board, and the Sitka Whalefest board. He loves to subsistence hunt, fish, gather and garden. He has explored above and below the waters of Southeast Alaska and kayaked thousands of miles along the North Pacific coast.
Natural history and boating are not only his professions, they are his passions!
Davey lives happily on the shore of a quiet cove in beautiful Sitka.
