So you want to see a moose? While moose are most active at night during  the summer months and bed down in cool shaded areas during the day. The best time to see moose is early in the morning and evenings. Below is a moose that showed up at our recent (end of July 2019) St. Croix River canoe trip campsite about 5AM. While the St. Croix is low on the list of where to see a moose, we do come across them from time to time. Late September during rutting season is a great time to call them into view! Our very best canoe trip to see moose is on the Allagash. Early mornings and evenings are best but they can be spotted throughout the day as they leave  their beds to venture into the river to feed on aquatic vegetation. We choose campsites that are known for moose viewing. While it is not a guarantee that we’ll always see moose, I would place the chances at 95% and often we’ll see numerous moose and up close! Our last scheduled canoe trip of the season is a 6 day Allagash canoe trip from Churchill Lake to Allagash Village. We have 5 adults signed up with room for 5 more. This is a great first timers canoe trip, we provide all the equipment, meals, give instruction as needed, and take care of all the pre trip planning, transportation to our launch location and back to your vehicles at trip’s end. All you’ll need is a sleeping bag and whats on your personal gear (clothing) list. To learn more about this trip, you can start by visiting our 2019 schedule webpage. Call, email or text with any questions you may have. We can send detailed trip information and a packing list to preview.
