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: Approximately $325/couple + $50 for each additional person

Your Registered Maine Guide will pick you up from the inn for your Private Moose Safari at approximately 5:30 – 6:00 in the morning, returning to the inn at 9:30 – 10:00 am. Or, if you’d prefer an afternoon safari, your guide will pick you up at 3:00 – 4:30 PM, returning to the inn by 7:00 to 8:30 pm. The morning and afternoon departure times change to match sunrise and sunset times. 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.

Cost: Approximately $325/couple + $50 for each additional person

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.

Scenic Drive

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!
