Onboarding Local Hosts

Roambler Hosts are not required to be professional guides. We are seeking to list the real local experience- often sought, and previously hard to find. We all have something to share and learn from one another. Through each Hosts unique perspective, every experience is distinctive in its own way. List your Experience and earn money sharing the skills, knowledge, and personality that make your Experience uniquely, YOU!

Onboarding Professional Guides

If you are a Professional Guide, Roambler is the spot for you! Perfect for Fishing Guides, Fishing Charters, and Boat Rides carrying six or more passengers- all which require Guide Permits in Pennsylvania. A large percentage of guide services have little, or no online presence. Let us change that! Select Professional Guide as an amenity to stand out. List your experience with Roambler to be found, booked, and paid- quickly and securely.

Advocate for Conservation while Hosting


Foster the stewardship of our forests. One of our greatest natural wonders, through all seasons. When you love and respect something you will go to great lengths to preserve it. Teach others to love and respect it, and they’ll do the same.


Reveal the beauty of our Rivers, Creeks, Streams, and Lakes. Out of reach for many for far too long due to a lack of access. Provide access to the gifts of our waterways and further their care by teaching others to love and care for them.


Pennsylvania is a melting pot, rich with diverse cultures, and a culture all of its own. Share what you love most about your cultural heritage, the culture of your town, city, rural area, or social scene. When we come together and learn from one another our perspectives begin to change- and we are better as a result.
