4 years ago we kayaked with our kids, then aged 7 and 9. River was easy to negotiate and scenery beautiful! This time around went tubing with them (now 11 and 14) and took the grandparents in their 70s. Stopped off twice on little islands. Had floating cooler too for drinks. Really pleasant afternoon. Staff are very friendly and accommodating.... More

I went with my family; two of us are in our 20s and my parents are in their 50s. It's been pouring for the past few days, so the river was faster than usual and we barely had to paddle. Our 2 hr tour finished early but we were on our own so you can stop and swim or land... More

I have used Bethel Outdoor Adventure numerous times for kayak and tubing trips on the Androsscoggin River with my kids, with friends and with my girlfriend. The owners, Jeff and Patty, are very nice and accommodating. I plan to use them for my future river trips when I am in the Bethel area.

While my daughter and I are rockhounds and love to visit mines for gems and rocks, while driving through Bethel we didn't have the time or clothes/equipment to do it on this trip. The next best thing was stopping here to sluice a bucket of tailings from a local mine. Ron (I hope I have his name right) was a... More

The owners are terrific. The briefing was short and simple. Made you feel like they were being helpful and not giving a lecture. All in all a great day on the river. Saw an Eagle, an Osprey and several ducks.

We rented a 2 person kayak form this company and could not have had a more pleasurable experience. From the moment we arrived until we drove off their property they made everything easy and enjoyable. The equipment was top notch as well as the way they treat their guests. We had a wonderful talk with patty Patterson who is one... More

We rented kayaks for an 18 mile trip down the Androscoggin River (there are shorter trips)and we had a blast! Upon arrival we were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff. On the river you will have the ability to see many great views and wildlife. There are river otter, moose, bear, Bald Eagles, Gold Eagles, and snapping turtles to... More

I've booked two kayak trips with these folks and have had a great time. Both times we used a kayak. The trip down the river is wonderful and changes with the seasons. We are lucky enough to live on the river so we are able to paddle from the house but when we want the full adventure or have a... More

We booked ahead and went on the Bumpus mine tour. Our guide (Seabury) was so knowledgeable and made the tour fantastic. Our boys (13 and 11) also loved going back to the Outdoor Adventure sluice to sift through the buckets of materials. They would have been happy to spend the whole day there! Thanks for making the last stop on... More

First of all, let me preface this by saying that this is a wonderful little gem in the Maine Woods! I have been coming here for virtually years. I moved to Missouri and brought a friend of mine back to visit Maine with me for 4 days. Our whirlwind tour including returning to this off the beaten path getaway. First... More
