With miles of quick water, numerous class I rapids, and a couple of class II rapids that can be paddled, lined or portaged, it’s easy to see why the St. Croix is one of Maine’s best canoe trips. The St. Croix is an ideal river to learn basic paddling and camping skills. The more advanced paddler will appreciate the quick water, numerous rapids and may even want to try their skill at solo paddling or canoe poling.
Campsites located on the river’s edge are rustic, with picnic tables, a fire pit and an outbox. We camp in tents, and cooking is done over an open fire. A more relaxed schedule allows time to swim, fish, read a book, and enjoy quality time with friends and family.
With numerous starting and ending points, choose a trip 1-5 days in duration. Dave and his team can take care of all your trip logistics. We provide all necessary equipment, canoes, meals, instruction as needed, and safely guide your family or group down the river. We’ll arrange to have your vehicle moved to trip’s end.

2017 St. Croix River Trip Testimonial
A True Maine Adventure!
“The staff from Canoe the Wild were all knowledgeable, polite, and fun to be with. My family of four attended and one item of special note is how patient and kind they were with my children (ages 7 & 9) even at sunrise when those little minds were full of questions and excitement. The food was excellent and was locally sourced when possible. The equipment was all in good shape and obviously well cared for. The locations we stopped at were nice and offered the opportunity to swim, fish, or just enjoy the sounds of nature. I already found myself looking ahead to what next’s years schedule had to offer.” Drew Kellner, NH
