Ocoee River Trip Leader – Michael Firestone

michaelMichael Firestone – Trip Leader
Nineteen years on the Ocoee!
2010 marks the Michael Firestone’s 19th year guiding rafts on the Ocoee River. Michael has been with the Ocoee Adventure Center since its inception, starting out as a river guide, progressing to trip leader, and in 2006 he became the River Manager. Michael stepped down as River Manager at the beginning of the 2008 season, but remains a full time trip leader with us. A degree in Psychology from nearby Lee University adds to Michael’s unmatched knowledge of whitewater rafting on the Ocoee River. Michael is also responsible for the training of all our guides, so even if he’s not your guide on the river, chances are he’s played a role in their development. When he’s not working on the river, Michael loves fishing, wandering in the woods and really bad 80’s music!
