22 Nov 13 Rain or shine Northern Outdoors on the Penobscot Rocks
The day our family scheduled to run the Penobscot River was a complete downpour. I know they do this all the time in all weather, but I still had my doubts that it would be quite as much fun. No worries, it turns out.
Our awesome guide Luke and the rest of the crew got us outfitted with wetsuits and adjusted the trip, food, and timing to make it work. We had a blast–best raft trip we've ever taken. Luke gave us a fantastic ride and I'm sure all the guides are good. The surfing and going over the waterfall were great thrills. We even saw four bald eagles. The wall tents we rented were dry, warm, clean, and scenic.
Yes, I'd recommend Northern Outdoors to anybody. We'll be back ourselves. Thanks!
