Born and raised in Montréal, Tilly’s love for being on the water started with dinghy sailing. In 2012, she spent a year sailing across the Atlantic Ocean on a tall ship. After this experience, there was no turning back; the ocean had become her happy place! She earned a marine biology degree in Nova Scotia, then fell in love with whales and Vancouver Island when she moved to Tofino in 2018. Since then, she’s logged thousands of nautical miles exploring the world’s ocean. She completed her divemaster in Honduras and has worked as a marine guide on the Great Barrier Reef and in New Zealand. Tilly recently decided to “come home” and Eagle Wing seemed like the perfect fit. She strongly believes in the power of sharing knowledge, fostering connection to our environment, and raising awareness about marine conservation through experiential education—one person at a time!
