09 Sep 13 The Wonderful World of White Water Rafting
We arrived at Northern Outdoors after spending a few days on Deer Isle. It was a great few days but we were ready to kick it up and have some thrills and excitement! We had a pleasant evening at your lodge with excellent food and some great beer! Later, off to sleep we went in your very quaint cabin for two. I believe we were the oldest couple there (old being in our 50's), but we were looking to "capture happiness" and we captured it just perfectly with our day on the river! The river was a THRILL, the beach side lunch was perfect, and our raft guide, Rachel, was awesome! Need I say more? We will be back next year but will do the Penobscot instead.
The only thing I would suggest,is making it clear to tip the guides. You don't go on the river with money so I would think most people would walk away at the end without tipping them. I think they do an outstanding job and deserve to be acknowledged. We happened to see our guide working in the lodge that night so we were able to tip her. I just think they don't get as much as they deserve.
