Neil Frazer was born in Comox on Vancouver Island in 1948. Neil earned an engineering degree from the University of British Columbia, and a PhD in geophysics from Princeton University. He has long been a Professor of Geophysics at the University of Hawaii where his research is in shoreline change and declines of wild fish due to fish farming.

In Hawaii, a kayak is his vessel of choice, but for more ten summers he used small open motorboats to explore the outer coasts and the inlets from Puget Sound to Glacier Bay. Boat Camping Haida Gwaii (Harbour 2001) arose as the result of four voyages around the Queen Charlotte Islands from Langara Island in the north to Sgan Gwaii and Rose Harbour in the south.

Neil Frazer lives in Kailua, Hawaii with his wife and their children.
