Perhaps destined to be a kayak guide, Dallas grew up volunteering at the non-profit organization that his mother established, Anchors Away, which allowed individuals with disabilities to experience water-skiing, kayaking, canoeing and other recreational activities.  When he's not leading kayak tours down Shem Creek or into the wilds of Folly Creek, you'll find Dallas playing bluegrass in his band, Dallas Baker and Friends, surfing the waves or exploring a new water trail by kayak.

Dallas lives on James Island with his wife, three kids, a mini Rex bunny, a beta fish and three dogs.

SPIRIT ANIMAL:  Osprey.  I enjoy the characteristics of raptors in general, and as a pescatarian I identify with their seafood diet.

HOMETOWN: Son of the Lowcountry.  Born in Mount Pleasant, raised in Goose Creek and found my happiness on James Island.

FAVORITE COASTAL EXPEDITIONS TOUR:  The Low-tide Sunset Tour or Sunrise Tour from the Folly Creek outpost that I manage.  I also enjoy when Crab Bank opens up on Shem Creek Tours.

FAVORITE ANIMAL TO SEE ON TOUR:  Dolphins of course, but I also really enjoy seeing Brown Pelicans diving for dinner.

WORDS YOU LIVE BY:  Manifest abundance.  Do what makes you great.
