Fifth Year on the Penobscot River

This is my fifth year on the Penobscot and second with Northern Outdoors. The trip was flawless & well organized. After meeting in the am during which there was a thorough explanation of the trip, expectations and safety features, we began the trip with a ride through the Exterminator. What a thrill, even after 5 years.

The guides were excellent, friendly and informative, interacting well with all the members of the group and the other guides. They offered multiple sites of raft surfing and as many trips over the falls as we wanted. Lunch was prepared well and extremely tasty, offering steak, fish, chicken or veggie options. This was followed by the second half the trip which included multiple rapids and areas of a relaxing float.

Also offered was an opportunity to enjoy the natural rock water slide. At the end of the trip, we met in a new pavilion to enjoy they photos and video from the day which had been already edited as we were offered beverages and the opportunity to relax in a hot tub. Just doesn’t get any better. Thanks.
