Ben Patrick

Guide & Lifeguard

I first took up kayaking as a hobby before the opportunity arose to join the Hightide team in 2017. I love being on the water, whether it is a Swiss lake or the sea. While guiding I love to meet new people and share my passion for this fantastic sport with our guests.

Originally, I hail from the Northwest of England, but I have been living in Switzerland for several years. During the Winter, when not kayaking, I can usually be found in the mountains. For many years I have worked as a ski instructor and ski school manager in the nearby villages of Grindelwald and Wengen.
