About the Crew

Skipper Alex King

Alex is a recent addition to the Trinity Eco Tours crew. Originally from Ottawa, ON she has strong ties to Newfoundland as both her parents’ families are from the Trinity area.  Alex has an extensive background working with and studying animals at various zoos and animal rehab centers in the past. She is excited to apply her experiences working with mammals and birds of prey to knowledge relating to wildlife found in the Trinity Bay area.  

Alex spent the past 5 years in Guelph, ON attending the University of Guelph and recently graduated with a BSc majoring in Zoology.  Her program was primarily focused on animal related studies involving course and lab work relating to mammals, birds, and invertebrates. 

Additionally, she spent time last summer at the Bonne Bay Marine Station in Gros Morne National Park participating in a marine mammal field course.  The course covered all aspects of marine mammals with a strong focus on the study of whales.  Alex has studied whales extensively and she is eager to share her knowledge with you.  She will gladly answer any whale questions or questions relating to wildlife in the area. 

Alex is excited to be a part of the Trinity Eco Tours crew for the Summer 2017 season, and she is looking forward to having you out on the boat with her!

 

Guide Crysta Stubbs

Our summer 2017 kayak guide, Crysta Stubbs, comes from the outskirts of Algonquin Provincial Park, in the small town of Whitney, Ontario. Being an adventurous, outgoing child, Crysta was always outside, whether it be on the lake fishing with her father, or exploring trails on an ATV. Growing up on the water allowed her to begin and master paddling at a young age. Throughout university, she continued to expand her kayaking experience through training in Belize, on the Caribbean Sea, as well as in St. John’s, Newfoundland. 

Throughout the past four years as a Zoology major at the University of Guelph, Crysta has accumulated expertise in a wide variety of animal related studies. Through the completion of a field course in Belize in 2016, Crysta developed an abundance of skills and experiences from working with and around marine animals; which she is excited to incorporate here in Trinity Bay. Specializing in both marine and inland birds and mammals throughout her education has provided her with a knowledgeable background about many of the species inhabiting the eastern coast of Newfoundland, which she looks forward to sharing with both the ATV and paddling guests of Trinity Eco-Tours.
