Captain Adrian Midwood is from Maple Ridge B.C. He grew up in the surrounding areas of Vancouver and moved to Vancouver Island at 18 to learn how to surf. After the one summer he was hooked and spent the next 7 years traveling the world chasing waves and hitchhiking on sailboats to developing island nations seeking uncrowded perfection in warm water.
At 25 he became an offshore Captain and achieved his Ocean rating the following year. On his 28th birthday he bought his first yacht in the outer island of French Polynesia, Raiatea (most commonly known as the heart of the Pacific). It was while living on this boat he realized how much the ocean had given him in life so far, and he was now ready to dedicate his powers for good.
“I was young, I owned my own house/boat, and it seemed an appropriate time to change course and work towards my passion.”
And the rest is history, he has been at the helm for everything Ocean Ambassadors has done to date.
