Multi-day Trips

The Machias River, St. Croix River, and Bold Coast have been formally recognized as outstanding paddling destinations in regards to wilderness, wildlife, recreation, and scenery.

st croix river canoe trip

The St. Croix River Trip is possibly Maine's finest canoe trip for families and parties of mixed ability who enjoy moderate whitewater or are eager to learn basic whitewater paddling technique. The Croix is runnable throughout the warm summer months and fall foliage season, a fact which when combined with the river's many notable qualities, sets it apart from other rivers.

The Machias Wilderness Whitewater Trip is run during May. The free flowing Machias river is 85 miles punctuated by scenic headwater lakes, rapid tributaries, challenging whitewater, remote campsites and subtle history all of which enhance this impressive wilderness canoeing experience.

bold coast kayak trip

The Bold Coast Trip explores one of Maine's most highly regarded sea kayaking destinations. The archipelagos and island nature preserves found along the bold Washington county coast are revered by sea kayakers and naturalists alike, but also harbor a remarkable link to the past.

Kayak Tours

Enjoy the island scenery of Machias Bay with family and friends on one of our guided kayak tours. Machias Bay provides an excellent opportunity to view seals and bald eagles from a kayak but also harbors a unique link to our past. Tours are scheduled daily.
