Went on a 7-day Allagash canoe trip. Lisa and Will were terrific guides. Great canoeing on the lakes, fun running the rapids, and excellent group dynamics. Canoe the Wild provides everything needed for a safe, fun, and memorable trip. This was our second trip with them, and we will return for a third one.

Just finished a four-day canoe camping/photography workshop with Canoe The Wild. This trip was co-sponsored by Down East Magazine. Down East provided a photography instructor and Canoe the Wild provided two fantastic guides, all the camping gear (except for sleeping bags), food, logistical arrangements, etc. It was an absolutely wonderful trip, despite the fact that water levels were rather low, so we got caught up on shallow gravel bars frequently. (In all fairness, I'm a pretty big guy, and we were carrying a lot of gear in our canoe, so we got stuck in many areas where others in our group glided through the shallow water without problem.) Dave and Tammi were the best guides we could have hoped for; their knowledge of the river and its surrounding area were unmatched. The food was fabulous. My wife does not eat meat and they made accommodations for her diet without any problems. I very highly recommend Canoe the Wild.

Canoe the Wild is a first class outfitter and helped to create a great wilderness experience for our group on the St. Croix River! We had 4 fathers and 4 sons (ages 7-9) in our group and each day brought new adventures of wildlife, fishing and great locally sourced food. Dave and his team offered the right amount exposure to respecting/appreciating the natural environment and having lots of fun. Our father/son group does a trip every year and this was our best trip yet. Thanks Canoe the Wild!

WHAT FUN! You haven't experienced Maine until you canoe THE ALLAGASH with Dave and Canoe The Wild! I was so pleased at how safe it felt under the care of Dave's guiding and teaching! I am a better paddler now for sure! The attention to detail, quality of food, pace, and organization were a cut above! THANK YOU! We WILL BE BACK! Ronda & Mike
