We provide safety and operating instruction for first-timers, as well as helpful hints on how to get the most from your adventure.

Choose the sled that is right for you.

Ski-Doo Grand Touring Sport 550

A high performance 550cc Rotax engine powers this sled, which introduces the New REV-XP platform to trail touring. The REV design provides extra legroom for more comfort and less rider fatique. All of our 550's are equipped with electric start, electric reverse, driver hand and foot warmers and dual mirrors. The SC-5M rear suspension and Motion Control front shocks enable nimble handling and take the rough spots out of any trail. Outstanding riding comfort and power are the trademarks of the Grand Touring Sport 550.

Ski-Doo MXZ 600

Our performance sled offering. The liquid cooled MXZ 600 is available to experienced riders who have either rented from us previously, can show a past snowmobile registration in their name, or have completed a snowmobile safety course.

Like the GT Sport the MXZl is based off of Ski-Doo’s award winning REV platform. With a 597cc liquid cooled motor this machine caters to the experienced rider and delivers more than enough power and handling capability to keep any enthusiast happy.

Your Family Package was a great way to introduce our two suburban, TV loving children to the wonders of Maine. And, it didn't hurt that the whitewater rafting was more exciting than any theme park ride! Our family will definitely be back.

Just had the best time ever rafting the Kennebec. Will be back to do Dead River and the Penobscot. Thank you all for such a fantastic time. The staff/ guides are all stars. Hopefully see you all next year
