Brent Pikolas

Brent joins the Zegrahm Expeditions team after nearly two decades of exploring wild Alaska as a guide, naturalist, and captain. In recent years, he's also taken those explorations to the Southern Hemisphere on trips to Antarctica, South Georgia, and the Falkland Islands. He currently calls Seward, Alaska home, where he is the Lead Captain on a fleet of passenger vessels focused on wildlife and glacier tours. He has a degree in Environmental Education from Prescott College, which led him to countless days in the field all throughout the Western US, Mexico, Canada, and Nepal. Brent is extremely passionate about the natural world and loves to share his in-depth knowledge whenever he can. When he is not sailing, kayaking, and fishing around Coastal Alaska, you can most commonly find Brent surfing on the coast of El Salvador in the winter.
