I went on 2 guided individual tours with Chris. Chris is from the area and knows where to find the wildlife. I wanted to get photos of moose and loons. He took me in a canoe where I could get close to get my shots. He was passionate and down to earth. Would highly recommend Chris as a guide!

We chose to take a tour with Chris based on the rave reviews - we were not disappointed! He is so passionate and truly loves what he does - he made the whole adventure really special. Not only did we see moose (6 total - 4 cows and 2 calves, some of them up close and personal), but we learned... More

We'd chosen Chris as we wanted a smaller, more personal moose safari than some of the larger outfits, and he didn't disappoint. Our reservation was dealt with by Beth, and she answered all our questions promptly. Chris arrived on time to collect us from the lodge and let us know that we would be taking a jeep safari rather than... More

After many trips to Maine, NH, VT, never saw a moose. Well I got to see the moose finally. Chris was a very informative guide, picked us up on time, went to a bunch of locations. Would definitely do another tour with him - thanks!

We went on the morning tour and it was a great experience! Chris was a great guide and very informative. He was right on time for picking us up where we were staying. We saw 7 moose in total and were able to take lots of pictures. The trip was well worth it - great way to see moose!!

I've been a collector and lover of moose since I was a child. We booked our trip with Chris 6 months in advance. Our tour with him into the deep woods of Maine was the highlight of our trip. The pictures we got were amazing. Chris was very informative and the scenery was beautiful. I highly recommend his services.

We had scheduled the canoe trip on the lake to look for moose to photography, but the morning of our adventure, the wind was blowing 1000 mph (not quite). Chris was right on time at 5:00 AM not encouraged about what we might find and reluctantly telling us we couldn't go on the lake in this wind. We piled into... More

The safari with Chris is well worth it. He picked us up on time from the Lodge we were staying at. We opted for a land trip rather than the canoe. Within 15 mins of setting off we had seen a bull moose. Chris was able to take us really close to him. In total we saw 5 moose and... More

When my husband and I decided to visit Maine I just knew I wanted to go on a moose tour! Hubs, however, was less thrilled about the idea, especially when I told him it was 3 hrs from where we were staying and it started at 5am. Yes, we got up at 2 and drove 3 hours from Poland Maine... More
