This past week we spent a fantastic afternoon on the Androscoggin River courtesy of the great service, top notch equipment and gracious... More

We visited without a reservation to go kayaking. There were not four slots of the ride in the van to go up-river and paddle down but the great staff offered another option. We were able to take two kayaks and launch them from the site and take a trip downriver. The staff provided a map and gave us options to... More

This was the first place I ever kayaked, and it was a blast. You can stop on one of the many islands along the way, take a break and have lunch. Excellent views of surrounding mountains. Great for beginners!

We just got back from another week in Bethel, ME and decided to drop by the Bethel Outdoor Adventure to see what was happening. We were greeted by the owners and they remembered us from 2 years ago! We caught up on our lives real quick and they proceeded to tell us about the adventures we can go on. At... More

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.
