I was disappointed with several parts of this 7 day 6 night canoe trip and feel I need to let others know. The trip was from Chamberlain Bridge to Town of Allagash. At the start, things seemed to go well. Paul was personable, had knowledge of the area and had interesting stories to tell. He taught us several skills that I didn't know and was willing to share them. The food on the first few days was good and plentiful. I was expecting more of a lunch variety as we had the same thing daily. Snacks were plentiful, nuts and energy bars. Near the end though, we had fewer supplies, eating the same supper and breakfast on the last two days. I felt that two miscalculations in direction that caused us to retrace paddle and add precious time to our day was an error. I did not expect that from a hired guide. Revealing that he had not been on the Allagash for at least two years as we drove back to Millinocket may have been a contributing factor. This fact I wished I had known earlier. I wished Paul had been prompt in starting our day. It took 3+ hours from wake up to paddling, we were waiting for Paul to get our day started. The last item is that I do not recommend an odd number of paddlers. Paul invited a friend to join our group which required Paul to paddle solo, causing us to lose precious time. Long days gave us less downtime each afternoon. I'm glad I was able to do this trip, I hope others that hire Paul ask detailed questions so they are clear as to what they are receiving in services.

Paul is a dependable, knowledgeable and personable guide who did a great job guiding me up and down Mt. Katahdin via the Saddle Trail. The views from the top were spectacular! Paul worked hard to make sure the trip went smoothly, and provided very helpful advice about hiking and backpacking.

Response from Paul S, Owner at Moose Woods Guide Service

Thanks for the kind words! It's always a pleasure to lead visitors to the top of Maine's tallest, and greatest mountain, Katahdin. Come back and visit Katahdin Country when you can. There's so much more to see and do! Best regards, Ranger Paul

My parents and I booked a 1/2 day tour with Paul to try and find some moose. We started out on a cold, early morning to go into Baxter State Park and then toured around the southern end of the Maine Northern Woods. Though we didn't find a moose, we had spectacular views of fall in Maine. Paul was extremely knowledgable of the area and though we didn't see a moose, we had a great time!

Booked a half day with Paul to see if we could find some Moose to photograph. Paul had us up early and on the way before sunrise in a effort to catch a moose sighting just after sunrise. We went to Baxter State Park and he took us on a short hike to a backwoods lake. Beautiful sunrise, lake, and view of snow covered Mt. Katahdin on a cold crisp morning. After that we traveled farther into the North Woods. Sadly the hunting season and fewer numbers of moose did not play in our favor but we saw some of the most beautiful scenery and captured some gallery quality photos. We also learned a lot about Northern Maine and the area around Baxter State Park. Great day and highly recommend Moose Woods Guide Service and Paul.

After wanting to experience the Allagash Wilderness Waterway for a number of years I finally decided to hire a guide to make this dream trip a reality. Paul was highly recommended and an excellent choice. His professionalism and know how to safely guide our group through the AWW made for an amazing experience. The four day Allagash trip included 45 miles of paddling through some of the most beautiful and peaceful scenery yet also included a lively splash of fun running some rapids along the way. Paul took the time to teach me to read the water which made the trip a great learning experience. He was mindful of everyone’s needs and set up an organized camp that included great meals in some beautiful locations. I would recommend anyone looking for an unforgettable Maine experience to contact Paul Sannicandro of Moose Woods Guide Service to take care of all the details for your next adventure.
