Waterman and Professional Adventure Guide Christopher Mautino has spent most of his life on, in, or near the ocean. Chris grew up an avid surfer, fisherman and free diver in Southern California and got his start in kayaking in 1981. Since that time he has lead trips in California, Hawaii, Mexico, Alaska and Western Samoa. In 2004 Chris started Liquid Adventures, an outfitting business based in Seward, Alaska.

Captain Chris is often featured in print and promotional media, is a Pro-Staffer for several outdoor gear manufacturers and is a regular presenter at symposiums and instructional clinics.

Exploring Mexico’s magnificent Baja Peninsula is another of Mautino’s passions. With more than 2000 miles of coastline and dozens of offshore islands, remote Baja lends itself to endless adventures. “It’s my favorite place on the Planet”. On one trip of note, Chris paddled the length of the length of the Sea of Cortez, a 52-day solo kayak journey.
