As a premier Maine outfitter, we have several different types/models of canoes and kayaks available from the Old Town Discovery 174 to the Old Town Loon 138 kayak. We make these available for your trip or if you just want to get away with the family for a day as well.

Canoe With Gear, Katahdin OutfittersPaddled tandem or solo, the Discovery 164 canoe features a sharp entry to split waves and undercut tough headwinds, a rounded bottom for agility and excellent secondary stability, and a carrying capacity that handles the unexplored wilderness as easily as a family day trip. The Discovery 174 can take all the punishment the river can give out. Along with its sharp V-entry and straight keel line, the 174's glossy surface literally slips through the water. It glides over rocks and it’s quiet.

The Loon 138 is a stable yet efficient solo kayak with a folding, high back bucket seat. The large cockpit allows for a child or pet to come along for the ride. We also have the Loon 138T, a two-seater model for those of you who want to travel together. Both of these kayaks have storage space in the front and rear.

Plan your trip carefully. Please take the time to be as accurate as possible, we need to know is how many people in your party, the number of boats you will need, and whether you will be using a Katahdin Outfitters vehicle for your transportation or will we be shuttling your personal vehicle. We only shuttle vehicles over paved roads.

We will also need to know the date and time that you will be arriving at the Katahdin Outfitters base: again, try to be as accurate as possible.

Let us know what your interests are and how much time you have, and I am sure we will be able to tailor a unique and pleasurable trip in the Katahdin Region for you.

  • The current philosophy on the waterways is, "Carry in - Carry out" with an emphasis on trash reduction. The amount of non-disposable trash ie. tin cans, glass containers, non-burnable plastic, aluminum beverage cans, etc. should be kept to a minimum. You are responsible for your trash disposal.
