St. Croix River Canoe Trip
This great Maine canoe trip starts just below the dam at the outlet of Spednik Lake in the small town of Vanceboro, Maine. The dam provides a constant flow of water on the St. Croix throughout the summer even when most other rivers in Maine are too low for canoeing. The left shore of the river is New Brunswick, Canada, we will be following the international boundary for the entire trip! The St. Croix river is a great river for canoe camping and learning whitewater skills. The river has a good current for most of the trip with many easy rapids followed by sections that are an easy float. There is a short rapid called Little Falls that is usually rated at class 2 or 3 at summer water levels, we will portage the gear and then you can run the falls if you want to with an empty canoe. This section of the river has a number of nice well-maintained campsites! We often see bald eagles, moose, white tailed deer, turtles and beaver on this trip. The Bass fishing can also be very good at times. This 3 day/2 night guided Maine canoe trip includes all equipment, meals and shuttle. You supply just your own sleeping bag, ground pad, clothing and other personal items. This trip can easily be extended by adding our Spednik Lake trip to its start for a great 5 day canoe trip! (Call for price) Also for an additional $150 per person we could add one more day and 12 more miles to the trip which would allow us to paddle downriver to the take out at the dam at Kelly Land.
Price is $550 per person for the 3 day trip and $700 for the 4 day. (based on a 4 person minimum)
