Along with the St. John, the Machias is one of only two completely free flowing rivers in Maine, making it a premier Maine early-season canoe trip. Carved away by prehistoric glacial formations, the Machias River combines beautiful large stands of tall white pines and bountiful arctic-like blueberry barrens to form one of the most amazing geological areas in  the state. The Mchias, Passamaquoddy for "bad run of river" features a large variety of whitewater, ranging from Class II-III+ depending upon water levels, making it an ideal choice for spring whitewater trips and clinics. The river is fed by a series of pristine lakes, tributaries are world-renowned for excellent trout and salmon fishing at all times of the season and the chance to spot wildlife in the remote corner of down east Maine is always superb. Smoking Rivers offers itineraries of varying lengh and difficulties, featuring combinations of lakes, river, and streams.

The Allagash Wilderness Waterways is truly a jewel of the North Maine Woods. The immense history of the Allagsh River corridor dates back to the 1800s and is centered around Maine's rich logging past, remnants of which still remain today. The attraction of the Allagash does not end with its robust forest and abundant wildlife, as it is also one of only four rivers in the world to run due north. Furthermore, it is also a path traveled by Henry Daved Thoreau and the first river corridor to be designated and protected as a Wild & Scenic River in America. The combination of large glimmering lakes and swift moving river offers one of the best opportunities in the country for an extended canoeing and camping experience. With intermittent white water (class I-II) and beautiful campsites makes the Allagash well suited for paddlers of all ages and skill levels, and ideal opportunity for families and friends to experience the Great North Woods.

The Saint Croix is perhaps Maine's  Best Choice, if not the only Choice, for a relaxed extended canoe trip, with whitewater in the middle of summer season and into the fall. One of Maine's true gems, the St Croix waterways start in an extensive chain of wilderness lakes, and flows through exceptionally beautiful woodlands and vast natural meadows along the Canadian border. Once used for driving log - through the remote forested reaches of easternmost Maine and the Canadian province of New Brunswick, the outstanding natural values of the Saint Croix Waterway, has led to its protected status as a "Canadian Heritage River". Noted as one of the few nesting areas for the American Bald Eagle, it also has a significant moose population, and boasts superb smallmouth bass fishing. The river features an abundance of easy whitewater ( I - II+), scenic schedualed campsites, an easy pace, and excellent cuisine. Lively but not intimidating it can be enjoyed by a wide range of canoeists, from beginner to expert. It is ideal for teaching technique - especially solo paddling and poling - or for those simply seeking a relaxed and tranquil river trip.

The upper-lakes trip is the premier trip and begins with a series of 5 Machias Lakes that are linked by small, intimate and sometimes turbulent streams.  These lakes and streams are a great way to begin your wilderness adventure thanks to its lush scenery and manageable whitewater. upon reaching the river, our guides will work with your group, regardless of the experience level, to ensure that everyone is prepared for the whitewater of the following days. Broken by lenghts of technical, pick-and-choose whitewater, the river also features a number of large drops that are scouted and give you an opportunity to takes photos of your companions. These include the Class III+ Carrik Pitch, Airline Rapids, and the Wigwams. Smoking Rivers can help you and your group plan an itinerary that fits your experience level and desires.

St. John River Canoe Trips 

8 Day



The St. John receives many accolades for its grandeur and sheer beauty but it can be best summed up as truly world-class. Roughly paralleling the Allagash, the St John spans approximately 100 miles through Maine's dense and vast boreal forest, serving as a vital environmental resource in the region it supports. flowing from Baker Lake, the St. John begins as a fairly small but lively stream before evolving into a racing river nearly a mile wide. Perhaps one of the most unique aspects of the St. John is that it is the longest free-flowing waterway in Maine; Therefore, the river can be paddled for only around 3 weeks in May, soon after the mighty Maine winter has released its icy grip on the north woods. This limited window makes you feel as if your adventure is heralding the arrival of spring. the magnificence of the St. John has been described as a racing river only a foot deep and a mile wide. From its humble source deep in the heart of Maine you and your party will plunge headlong into a river trip that few will ever forget. The lower sections of the river boast a number of large, Class III+ whitewater sections, guaranteed to keep even the best paddlers on the edge of their seats; (paddling experience is suggested for this river.) In addition to the enticing whitewater, the St.John is also renowned as a world-class musky fishing river. Moose, deer, bear, and eagles are plentiful along its shores. Our professional guides will assist you in enjoying this wonderful river by providing nothing short of the best wilderness cuisine, instruction, and enjoyment in the industry. An early season St. John trip is a paddling adventure second-to-none in the northeast states. Its large whitewater, continues currents, and beautiful, remote secenery make this river a "must do!" for adventurers and paddlers alike.
