…a day in search of moose
Moose & Wildlife Safari
'Moose Safaris', also called 'Wildlife Safaris' because guests see more than just moose, are simply wonderful.
With advanced notice (up to 2 weeks is helpful), we will arrange for an experienced Maine Guide to pick you up from the inn and take you to a remote lake where canoes await you. Paddle amid the peaceful, pristine waters in search of moose, bear, beaver, deer, loons, bald eagles, etc.). The best months of the year to spot moose are May, June and July! These trips leave early in the morning or late in the afternoon. Just let us know what date and time of day you would prefer. This service is for guests of the inn only.
Cost: Not to exceed $225/couple
Safaris depart daily at approximately 5:30 - 6:00 AM or 3:00 - 4:00 PM depending upon the time of year. Advance reservations are highly suggested, If you wait until you get here, guides may not be available.
Moose Safari via vehicle
Canoes or boats not your thing? Consider a ‘Moose Safari’ by vehicle. They operate the same as a 'moose safari' but our guides will drive you into the back woods in search of this gentle giant instead of a water safari. Again, advance reservations strongly suggested.
Not to exceed $225/couple
Sea Plane Tours
Take to the skies in a float plane! There are several FAA approved charter services with pilots ready to take you on breathtaking tours of Moosehead Lake. Get a bird's eye view of this beautiful and majestic lake & mountain region while always keeping an eye out for moose! Seaplane reservations can not be made in advance but we can help you once you are here.
Drive yourself to various spots (we’ll tell you where) that offer excellent chances to view moose from the comfort of your own car! Again, June and July are the best months for this to happen. Dusk and dawn offer the best moose sighting opportunities!
