ABOUT DAYBREAK EXCURSIONS

Professional Adventurer

Enhance your travels, or explore new local experiences with a quality Adventure Guide. I’m Daybreakexcursions.com, and I’m here to guide you on your next memorable trip.

When I’m not outdoors looking for the next great adventure, I spend my time doing research and exploring new possibilities to help keep my tours fresh, interesting, and relevant. Have a look at all the great excursions, and get in touch with any questions, comments, or concerns.

Daybreak Excursions strives to stay small. I love guiding small groups.  An optimum group would be a party of 8 for any daily excursion.  When I am guiding, I like for it to be challenging as well as positively motivating. I have found that with smaller groups there is less distraction, increased ability to absorb the instruction, and time to apply that instruction to the task at hand.

Rock Climbing

Daybreak Excursions provides rock climbing instruction and guided climbing adventures.   Our menu of services includes:


Introductory rock climbing instruction at local crags: All rock climbing gear is provided.  We will also upon occasion provide guided climbing trips to areas outside of Frederick County MD to Carderock in Montgomery County MD as well as Great Falls VA.


Anchor Class:  Learn to build Top Rope and Rappel anchors utilizing natural protection.


Lead Climbing:  We provide instruction on how to place traditional protection.  We also provide small guided excursions to steeper rock outside of Frederick County, MD .  

Rappelling

Daybreak Excursions provides beginner rappelling adventures for small groups locally here in Frederick County MD, Carderock MD, and Great Falls VA.  All gear is provided.
Learn the basics of rappelling by practicing techniques on low angle rock.  When you are ready we will move on to more vertical terrain.

Caving

This adventure can be during any season of the year.  In the spring and summer months the caves are nice and cool and during the fall and winter the caves are a comfortable 55 degrees.   Daybreak Excursions provides guided caving exploration for small groups.    Most caves are within a 90 minute drive from Frederick MD.  These are wild caves and great for the inexperienced explorer.  Some caves are very easy while others require a front loading of rope work for rappelling and ascending to gain accesses to some caves hidden features.   All gear is provided.

Kayak Rentals

Cool off!  Daybreak Excursions rents single person flatwater kayaks for local use here in Frederick County MD on the Monocacy River.  Rental includes PFD, paddle and kayak.  We shuttle the kayaks to your put in point and then pick them up at your take out.  We do not shuttle people, just kayaks.  That means when you rent you need to consider having a vehicle at both the put in and the take out.
