Dennis Thomas Business Development Manager
Project Manager/Cultural Guide/Skipper
Ancestral name-Whonoak (caretaker of the river).
Hawaiian name-Kawika (he who takes care of creatures of the sea).
Born in North Vancouver and is a member of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation. His blood lineage is of Tsleil-Waututh/Squamish/Kwakwaka’wakw First Nations and Scottish. I love the outdoors. Ever since becoming the project manager of Takaya Tours in 2010 I’ve grown to appreciate our natural surroundings of Burrard Inlet/Indian Arm. Learning every aspect of our culture and being able to share it with tourist/locals/students give me great strength and pride. Having a great team behind Takaya Tours has allowed the company to expand and gain more exposure than ever before! We all love the outdoors, our natural environment, our culture, our stories and our songs. We invite everyone to come and experience Takaya Tours- First Nation Canoe & Kayak Adventures!
