This was a fantastic tour. Our guide Ashley Patterson was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. She could field almost any question. My wife and I never rowed a canoe before so she had us in her canoe and helped us along. We saw a cow moose eating in the pond. It was a great trip.

We went on a moose safari last night with Steve. We saw up close, or as close as one would want to get, a cow and her calf! Steve did a great job of ensuring we were in the right place at the right time! We continued our safari with a terrific canoe ride in a beautiful, pristine "pond". We... More

We rented kayaks from Northwoods Outfitters. Since we have a kayak rack on the car and brought our own paddles, etc., they were easily able to accommodate us. They are very helpful at recommending local places to kayak, such as Prong Pond, which we knew nothing about. Since they rent kayaks for the entire day for a reasonable price, it... More

Loved the UTV we took out for 4 hours. It was very scenic and we saw a deer. Also had a GREAT time in the canoe (and van) for the moose safari. We saw 9 moose, a beaver and their dam, and a mother with baby foxes. If we go to Maine again, we would definitely stop again.

We did not see any moose but it was not for a lack of effort by our guide who was just as disappointed as we all were. Met nice people and had a beautiful two-hour canoe ride with lovely scenery. We are very inexperienced with canoes and had trouble from the beginning but the guide rearranged the canoes and split... More

Did their Moose Safari tour and stayed at Moose Mountain Inn. Moose tour guide terrific and very knowledgable. Moose Mountain Inn was a clean motel with a very customer oriented staff that went out of their way to help.

Making reservations was easy and fast. The Moose Mountain Inn was your typical motel but it did have refrigerators and microwaves which was a plus. The pool was clean and we enjoyed taking a dip after the 8 hour drive. However, the moose tour was disappointing. After driving almost 40 minutes, we came to a dirt road for the "wildlife"... More

Northwoods outfitters took great care of us during our July trip to Moosehead Lake. Matt was an excellent instructor for my 12 year old son and fantastic guide for me. We caught several nice brook trout and more salmon than I can recall. One monster salmon even took me all the way to the backing of my spool! Great jumps... More

Our guide would not give up until we saw a moose. We looked in many nooks and crannys. We finally saw one in the bushes nibbling. I would love to go back and try it again.

This is a very, very well organized guide trip using canoes. Matt was our guide. We almost immediately saw one moose, even before the canoes were launched. As a solo traveler, I was in Matt's canoe, but I know everyone had a great time. The second moose was grazing on the other side of the lake and totally ignored us... More
