All Certified Wilderness First Responders
David Joaquim has been lending his many talents to the caving community in Arizona for over 30 years. He has been volunteering time with National Park Service in Carlsbad Caverns National Park, helping microbiologists studying extremophiles. David served many years as Treasurer of the Vertical Section, as well as Resource Preservation Chairman for the Conservation Section of the National Speleological Society. David is also a Certified Cave Guide for the Coronado National Forest in Southern Arizona and a Certified Guide for the Tonto National Forest. Over the years, David has also helped with cave projects in Grand Canyon National Park. There are very few roads in Arizona, Southern Utah or New Mexico that David has not ventured down. David is a seasoned road warrior.
David and his team of guides bring to you years of experience planning trips to remote locations and often in extreme conditions. David is a certified Wilderness First Responder with advanced first aid & CPR training to provide medical assistance in remote locations. The Sonoran Desert, The Great Basin, The Chihuahuan Desert, Grand Canyon and Lake Powell are some of the greatest natural wonders of the world, pure eye candy. However, they are huge desolate places where getting lost is out of the question. Our guides are all Certified by Tonto National Forest, National Park Service, members of the Arizona Herpetological Association and National Speleological Society. To really explore the beauty of this natural world, you need to escape deep into the wilds and doing so safely is our primary objective.
