"The Amazon River: Facing fears, chasing dreams, and a quest to kayak the largest river from source to sea"

 A presentation by:

Darcy Gaechter
World Kayaker & Owner/Operator of Small World Adventures in Ecuador


Darcy is the first woman to kayak the Amazon River from Source to Sea! What did it take for her to make her dream come true? Among stunning scenery and Class V rapids, she also encountered ruthless poachers and narco-traffickers, pled for mercy at the hands of one of the tribe’s, and cut her hair to pass as a boy in hopes of saving her life. Darcy will share these stories and more about her 148-day journey down the Amazon River. Her book Amazon Woman: Facing Fears, Chasing Dreams, and My Quest to Kayak the Largest River from Source to Sea will also be available for purchase.
