Nature Exploration Canoe Trip

Enjoying an Afternoon Canoe Trip

Explore nature in the Maine outdoors like never before: with a Master Maine Guide who’s an expert on the area’s geography, wildlife, and history.

You’ll experience a private three-hour or full-day canoe trip with bird watching, critter dipping, and paddling in the serene nature of Maine for a new understanding of an appreciation for the outdoors. If you’d like to include fishing from the canoe, we can add that to the trip.


Where and When

We’ll start and return to Ayer Park in Union, Maine from May to October. As with all Maine Outdoors trips, your Nature Exploration Canoe Trip is for your party only, so you’ll have a Master Maine Guide exclusive to your trip.


Don Kleiner, Master Maine Guide

Don’s encyclopedic knowledge of Maine’s outdoors, wildlife, geography, and culture create an exclusive, guided experience like no other in the state of Maine. You’ll have a chance to soak up the pristine outdoors of Maine, creating memories with your family to last a lifetime, with an expert in the field.


Maine Outdoors for the Whole Family

Kids, parents, and grandparents will be at ease on the trip, enjoying the beautiful scenery while learning something new and having fun. During the trip, you’ll gain knowledge of the area, the wildlife, and the environment.

Whether you're a beginner or an experienced paddler, Don's expertise of over thirty years leading trips in Maine will guide you with helpful suggestions on how to improve your technique. Don can make accommodations for various learning styles so every member of the family can fully experience the Maine outdoors.
