Meet Eric Carlson

Eric Carlson

Grand Canyon Outtasight Guide

About Eric

Eric fell in love with the power of the river 15 years ago. He focused primarily on rafting, until 3 years ago, when kayaking took center stage. Guiding for Team River Runner this year will be a highlight of his paddling career. Having led a trip on the Grand Canyon in September of 2017, he feels incredibly blessed to be returning to the majestic canyon a mere one year later.

In the summer of 2017, Eric partnered with Steve Baskis (a blind veteran who served in Iraq almost a decade ago) in a biathlon. Eric was humbled to serve an amazing man that served others so selflessly. He knew from that moment on that there is nothing more powerful than helping other people accomplish their dreams, no matter what their circumstances.

 Eric will be with Steve every rapid of this entire experience. Let the good times roll!

Eric's Thoughts about the trip!

When passion and purpose collide, anything is possible. Eric is incredibly passionate about kayaking and feels immense purpose in teaming up with veterans who share the same passion. It is an honor for him to give back to those who gave so much for our country.
