In Spring Summer and Fall we run moose safaris and wildlife tours, and in Winter we run daily guided snowmobile tours in the Katahdin Region, sleds are provided. The Moose tours in Maine run twice daily once in the morning and once in the afternoon either by pontoon boat or air conditioned van and we will customize a trip to meet your group's needs. Guests frequently see Moose and other animals commonly seen on our wildlife tours include bald eagles, loons, osprey, great blue heron, pileated woodpeckers, Canada geese, fox, whitetail deer and some very shy black bears. Private tours are available for both the Moose Tours and Snowmobile tours and can be for all or part of the day. Our regular tours last about 3 hours.

There was not much choice in run down Millinocket. We found the Scootic Inn on the recommendation of our motel. It was friendly and the beer and pizza were good. Not busy but more people inside than we would have expected.

It was our pleasure to take a moose gazing tour along the Golden Road. We did not see any moose. But, we had a great guide who kept looking diligently for the hiding, or should I say bashful, moose. I would recommend the tour to...More

A pleasant 3 hour trip on Millinocket Lake by Pontoon searching for moose. Never saw one but the experience gave us many photo ops of the Mount Katahdin area. Guarantee another ride free anytime if we don't see a moose.
