21 Jun 11 The best rafting experience
This was my 4th time going on a rafting trip and from the second we got to Northern Outdoors to when we left in the evening, the experience was exceptional. On previous trips, the outfits often promise class 5 rapids and a lot of excitement but I had yet to experience class 5 rapids. Everything changed with our trip on the Penobscot. There was hardly a moment when I wanted to get out.
Luke D is absolutely amazing … full of facts and the best guide. We had the time of our life and I can’t recommend Northern Outdoors enough.
Lunch wasn’t just lunch – I don’t know any company that serves Stir Fry rice, salty snacks, pasta salad, a choice of veggie or salmon burgers, chicken or steak, hot cocao, coffee, a variety of cookies and an orange drink!!!! I’ve been on all sorts of trips before – Snorkeling, Scuba, Paragliding but no one offered service that comes anywhere close to my experience here. Everything was extremely well thought out. The breaks, lunch, the fact that there were restroom spots at every stop. Made the entire experience very enjoyable.
Luke D is an amazing guide. If I go rafting anywhere with Northern Outdoors, I would ask for him to be our guide. He was patient and firm and made sure all of us were safe and comfortable.
After you return from your trip, you get to watch an amazing slideshow of fantastic photos from the trip and an amazing video compilation. I am a web designer and I was blown away by the video. They did it in 2 hours or less.
This is the best adventure tour company I have experienced!
