The technical, Machias River -This river is a little more demanding than most. Trip lengths can be varied from 3 to 9 days, depending on the put-in and takeout points. The river sections are narrower than most and contain some pretty technical rapids, especially for canoes loaded with a weeks worth of gear. Our guides have years of experience on this river and know when to portage and when to paddle. Depending on the desired trip length, the price will vary accordingly.

Moose River, is a mild river and a good way to start wilderness canoeing. The river is mostly flatwater with a few very short easy rapids. There is one portage, however, it is at one of our campsites and can therefore be done casually. This is a four day, three night trip and is priced at $600, fully outfitted.
Penobscot Rivers, East or West -The East Branch is a more difficult trip, containing several mandatory portages. However, along with the portages come some pretty spectacular waterfalls, We pack a little lighter and plan shorter days for this trip. It is a photographers dream, especially in the fall. Therefore, this is the Fall Foliage trip, if the water level is right.

The West Branch is an easy relaxing trip. We start this trip at Lobster Stream, paddle into Lobster Lake for the first day and then go down river from there. We stop over for a visit at Chessuncook Village, the only town in Maine with no road access, before camping on Chessuncook Lake our last night. The last day we paddle out witnessing views of the back side of Mount Katahdin, Maine's Highest Peak. The West Branch is also the site of our Fall Fly fishing trip. Trips priced at $200/day/person, fully outfitted.

 

The grand daddy, St. John River - This is an 8 day trip, covering approximately 125 miles of pure wilderness travel. There are no portages in this trip, for the most part, it is a very fast current with light rapids. There are several huge rapids, class 3; however, if run properly, utilizing the edges, may be negotiated at a class 2 level. The campsites on this river are well maintained by the North Maine Woods. If we hit it right the fishing can be spectacular. As with all our trips all you provide is your personal gear, a packing list will be provided.
