Cosa farete

Your trip begins with a short drive from the meeting point to a roadside canoe launch on the Raquette River. After a short safety talk and instruction, we will take to the water for a day of paddling.

As we make our way up river, we will encounter a number of creatures that call the river home. Ducks, beaver and king fisher are common sightings along the river.

Around noon, we will stop for a shore lunch. Cooking is one of my growing passions and I always enjoy sharing a great meal with my guests. After lunch, we will turn our boats downstream and head back to the launch. Guests are encouraged to bring their cameras, as the river has some great photo opportunities.
Other things to note
I encourage you to book this trip for the months of May, September or October to avoid bug season.

You will also want to bring a change of socks and shoes as you will get wet.

Dove ti troverai

The upper section of the Raquette River is known as the "gateway to the wilderness" as it leads into one of the largest wilderness areas in NY. Lined with pines and alders, the river is narrow and smooth with only the occasional obstacles. Known for it's natural beauty and great fishing, this paddle is must for anyone looking for a true Adirondack experience.

David is an excellent river guide and created a pleasant outing for us on a pristine Adirondack regional waterway. We got a chance to take in all of the beauty that the Racquette River has to offer during mid-summer. David packed a healthy lunch for all of his guests and even asked if there were any food allergies or sensitivities, which I found especially conscientious. He let us chat away, and was super informative when we peppered him with random questions. Also, he was flexible in accommodating the varying number of people that we would eventually bring along, and his communication was excellent. Would definitely do this again and certainly would recommend to others.

A lovely, calm time. David goes at the guest's pace and is very knowledgeable. If you are looking for a very relaxing canoe trip with a little bit of a wilderness twist, this is perfect for you.

This was my first canoeing experience and David was extremely helpful in making me feel not only comfortable in the canoe (for the first time ever) but also helped me get better at canoeing with useful tips in paddling and navigating the waters. David is very knowledgeable and has a lot of experience in canoeing. David also has no problem going canoeing regardless of the weather. Unfortunately, it was raining (on and off all day) on our day but we still went for a 3-hour ride and he was willing to go longer only if I had come more prepared for the rain (I didn't exactly check the weather so that's on me). If you're looking for an experience with a knowledgeable guide, you have found it/him! I highly recommend David!
