This was the highlight of our trip to Maine. (well, my husband would say it was the seaplane ride!) ;) Ashley, our tour guide was spectacular! We learned so much!! We had to do a private tour since our children were so young (2 and 5), and she was awesome with the kids. She had our 5 year old ride with her in the canoe, and even let her have her own paddle help with the paddling. We unfortunately didn't see any moose on the water, but we saw one full grown cow on the way to the pond, just grazing...and she slowly crossed the road right in front of our truck, and once on the water, we got to watch a bald eagle for about 5 minutes and we also saw loons, and then 2 more moose (bull and cow) on our drive back to the store. Ashley was so informative and friendly and such a joy! She showed us signs of moose being in the area, showed us how to hide our scent with bog laurel, and by the end of it, my 5 year old little girl was convinced she had a new best friend! :) I highly recommend this tour!
