“WATCH OUT!!…rock right! “ As we navigate down a tricky rapid with our guide, Blaine Miller of Allagash Guide Inc, we are coached on proper “white-water” canoeing techniques and all is GOOD!
My wife and I have been on several trips with Blaine; The Allagash Water Way, St. Croix River and the West Branch of the Penobscot. Each trip has had it’s own uniqueness and challenges but through it all Blaine has made the trips fun, safe and a good investment for our outdoor adventure dollar.
We compiled this list of Blaine’s qualities as a guide and guide service:
Experienced…many years of doing trips makes a difference for the customer
You’ll hear him say (under his breath) to others along the way who may have gotten themselves ‘in trouble’, “should have hired a guide”. And he is right!
Prepared…..there has never been a situation he hasn’t seen. We actually waited out a violent wind and rain event for 2 days, and ended up being the only canoes on the river because the Wardens knew Blaine had the situation under control!…PRICELESS!
Great food…from a huge breakfast to steaks on the grill for supper, he does it all (well).
Always well balanced, with desert!
Story-teller/humorist…Blaine will surprise you with local lore and more. A dry funny person.
Knowledgeable…Blaine will baffle you with his working knowledge of wildlife, geology and local history.
Comfort (Outdoors?)….Blaine’s equipment and preparation makes his trips special and safe.
If you want an outdoor adventure in the Maine wilderness, Allagash Guide Inc. is the best way to go!
