We rented 2 canoes from the Northeast Guide Service for a 5pm canoe tour of Moosehead Lake. The reason the tour was so late in the day, is because much like the deer in NY, the moose are on the move at dusk and dawn. The timing gives you the best chance at seeing a moose. A tour guide drove us up to the lake and we split up into 2 canoes, I think it was a 3 person maximum per canoe. The tour guide was in one canoe with me and my youngest son, while my 2 older boys and husband followed us in the second canoe. It was great to go in the tour guides canoe because he did all the paddling (although, for some that is half the fun).
The views were insane, as you can see from the picture (I have more pictures on my website,contact me if you are interested)! The lake was so calm and smooth that it was surreal. It literally had a mirror image of everything around the lake, every tree, every cloud…it was a sight to be seen! Unfortunately, we did not get to see a moose that day. That was disappointing, but overall we had a great day!
