Dan Daley:

Dan is the Managing Director of Rock the Boat Activities. He has had the benefit of being involved in a wide range of outdoor activities whilst exploring some fantastic locations all over the UK (Dartmoor, Wales, Scotland…to name a few) and further afield (French Alps, Slovenia, Indonesia and Morocco). Having spent 4 years heading up the paddle sports programmes at Lee Valley Olympic White Water Centre, Dan’s professionalism, coaching, and passion for the outdoors have led to a high level of delivery and enjoyment on every session.

With a strong love for paddle sports, Dan believes there is no better place to be than on the river on a rainy day. If you sign up to one of our more advanced courses or Slovenian trips, it’s likely you’ll be on the water with Dan.
