29 Jun 11 .Penobscot River Rafting
This is my second time rafting with Northern Outdoors, and I must say that the experience was once again exceptional! My girlfriend and I were very pleased with our guide, Dave Welch. He was an exceptionally knowledgeable ambassador and we found him to be very skilled at both guiding our boat and motivating us as crew members.
My girlfriend Christine and I ended up sitting at the front of the raft, and one point during a class 5 section she was swept off the raft into the river. I was absolutely staggered when, out of nowhere, Dave came diving to the front of the boat and pulled her in, only to disappear in what seemed like a millisecond to return to his duty of safely guiding us out of some very challenging rapids. The entire raft crew was very impressed with his skill and reaction time.
We had an absolute blast on the trip and definitely plan to return later this summer with friends to raft the Dead River and at least once a year going forward. We also plan on joining Northern Outdoors on a snowmobile tour this winter. Thanks again and keep up the good work!
