What do I need to bring?

We provide a list of gear that you will want for the trip.

Are there any extra costs?

Everything is included except gratuities for the guides. (See question 5)

What kind of physical shape do I need to be in?

The activities that you will be doing are physically demanding. You can expect to be active for 4 - 6 hours each day. We will take frequent rest breaks and we will have a lot of high energy snacks and water to keep energy levels high.

Will I be required to sign a liability wavier?

Yes, our insurance carrier requires that we get a signed copy of our wavier form from each client. Our guide partners may also require a signed copy from you for their activity as well.

Should I tip our guides?

This may be the only extra cost that you should consider. The general rule of thumb is 10-20% for the activities guide for service that meets or exceeds your expectations. For the activities that we offer that is $10 -$20 per activity. This is not included in the package price because we feel that it is important for clients to recognize and reward the guides for exceptional service.

What kind of experience do these trips require?

Virtually none! The guides can help each participant learn as much about the activity they are leading as you are willing to absorb. It may be helpful if you have camped outdoors and slept in a sleeping bag.

Who will be on the trip?

People that share an interest in outdoor activities. Energetic, adventurous folks that have chosen Maine as a destination for their next vacation.

Will there be time for shopping and sightseeing?

There will be occasional stops along the way at roadside stores, but there is very little time for shopping as a focus. We will certainly be stopping often for sightseeing. Maine has a lot of beautiful scenic overviews and we will stop as often as you'd like.

Can I fish?

There is typically time in the afternoon and early evening to wet a line. A non-resident fishing license is required and may be purchased at many stores along our route.

Do you have vegetarian and or vegan meals?

Absolutely, and we will work hard to accommodate any other special dietary requirements.

How many people will there be on the trip?

Typical group size is eight people. The maximum capacity is 12.

What if I need to cancel the trip?

Deposits are 90% refundable up to 60 days prior to your trip. Rescheduling is always an option. Rescheduling can be in the same calendar year if the time is available, or it can be arranged for a future date.

Do trips ever get cancelled?

On the rare occasions when we must cancel a trip, all payments received to date will be refunded, which constitutes full settlement. If a trip is cancelled within 45 days of departure due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund and a trip of equal value. If you should cancel a trip within 45 days of departure because of natural disaster or civil unrest, you will receive a full refund. We are not responsible for expenses incurred in preparation for any cancelled trips, such as airline tickets.

Will there be a place to store luggage while I am on the trip?

Yes, at our base and rendezvous point in Windham you can store luggage during the trip.
