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

Our family spent last week at Sunday River and had the opportunity to meet the lovely owners and staff of Bethel Outdoor Adventure. We rented single kayaks for our family of four and paddled 10 miles down the Androscoggin River for a peaceful and wonderful time observing ducks, geese, an otter and even a bald eagle during the leisurely trip....

Tour guide Dan dropped us off in Gilead (8/14/12). For 2.5 hours we never saw another human being. We did see a bald eagle which certainly made our day! The 10 mile trip can take longer or shorter depending on the flow of water (5 knots that day) and your desire to paddle. We stopped once to refresh in the... More

Renting Kayaks for our family of four-what fun! We spent the whole day paddling down the Androscoggin River, stopping to eat our packed lunches. We rented single kayaks for the kids, and tandem kayak for us. Now, paddling in sync is not easy so to make your vacation fun, just have dad paddle in the back while mom takes pictures!... More
