  The "Loon"

*** This year, try a new vacation experience ***
Paddle with the "Loon"!

lthough we specialize in wilderness river canoe trips, the basis on which I have designed this site, we also provide service and support for other types of outdoor wilderness recreation. We offer remote wilderness cross-country ski trips in the winter that traverse Maine's famous "Baxter State Park" of 2 to 7 days duration. We also support Appalachian Trail hiking (over 280 miles in Maine) and mountain climbing on peaks in the Barren, Bigelow, Katahdin, Mahoosuc, and Traveler ranges. We offer full day sailing excursions among the islands off the rocky coast of Maine, departing from Blue Hill. Day sails are also offered on Maine's famous 40 mile long Moosehead Lake centered around Mt. Kineo with its nearly 300' high vertical cliffs. Afternoon and evening dinner cruises can be enjoyed on the Pemadumcook chain of lakes with views of Maine's highest peak, Mt. Katahdin, just outside of Millinocket. If you have interest in any of these activities, drop us an email with your inquiry and we'll get right back to you with the appropiate information.

Having paddled for over 25 years and logged more than twelve thousand miles along the wilderness rivers of Maine's back-country and the wilds of New Brunswick, Canada, I offer you the widest selection of guided river trips available in Maine (276 combinations).

* 27 Different Rivers
* 3 cost options for every trip
* Trip Durations of from 1 to 22 days

The information provided in navigating the links to your left will answer most, if not all, of your questions about a wilderness river canoe trip with us. As examples, I've included detailed descriptions of 5 of the 27 rivers listed in the table including the renowned "Allagash Wilderness Waterway". If you would like additional detailed descriptions for any of the other rivers on which we operate, just drop us an email note and we'll rush them right out to you.

Keep in mind that the choicest dates book early, usually during the preceding winter. So weigh your options, make your selection, and register early. This unique vacation experience can be yours this year.

I'd like to take this opportunity to "Thank You" for considering "THE LOON" as your Guide and Outfitter for your Wilderness River Canoeing Adventure.

"Hope we get to be of service to you this season"
