Kent Grimes

Kent Grimes has been a kayak guide and instructor with Outside Hilton Head since early 2010. Originally from near Philadelphia, with his jobs he and his wife, Pennie, have lived in seven states in different parts of the country. After vacationing on Hilton Head Island for 35 years and after retiring they moved here in 2008. He has a BS in Engineering and MBA in Finance and for a few years taught math in college. Kent has been paddling for 15 years, is a certified ACA kayak instructor and an SC master naturalist.

He enjoys being outside and especially enjoys the serenity and nature in the waterways around the island. In addition to paddling, Kent walks five miles a day and spends time in the gym 2-3 days a week. What he likes best about working for Outside is its fun-to-be-with staff and the company’s pursuit of excellence in everything it does.
