Oxford Kayak Tours is run by Paul Preece who has over 40 years of experience in a kayak. Paul is a British Canoe Union instructor (BCU UKCC L2) and holds a BCU 3* Sea Kayak and a REC Emergency First Aid qualification. He is also certified in Spain as a Patron de Navegacion (Ocean Yachts) and still has nightmares from rounding the Cape of Finisterre in what seemed like a very small yacht at the time.

In a previous life Paul worked as a research scientist in Los Angeles and London and has published papers on neuroscience and Alzheimer's Disease.

When not in a kayak he is also interested in Tai Chi and photography.

You can follow Paul's mini-adventures on his Youtube channel.
