In Spring Summer and Fall we run moose safaris and wildlife tours, and in Winter we run daily guided snowmobile tours in the Katahdin Region, sleds are provided. The Moose tours in Maine run twice daily once in the morning and once in the afternoon either by pontoon boat or air conditioned van and we will customize a trip to meet your group's needs. Guests frequently see Moose and other animals commonly seen on our wildlife tours include bald eagles, loons, osprey, great blue heron, pileated woodpeckers, Canada geese, fox, whitetail deer and some very shy black bears. Private tours are available for both the Moose Tours and Snowmobile tours and can be for all or part of the day. Our regular tours last about 3 hours.

Drove to NEOC from Orono, ME on my second day in Maine. I took the late afternoon (4 PM) pontoon boat "Moose Tour." We did not see any moose during the 3-hour tour, but the scenery was so spectacular and our guide so friendly & courteous, that I didn't really care! The entire Millinocket Lake and incredible views of Mt.... More

I was a little apprehensive of white water rafting. What an experience! Great guides, (ours was Garret), safety first, good equipment and nice lunch. We had a good group on our raft and very fun. I experience rapids I never thought I could challenge. I would encourage anyone of good health of any age to give it a try. New... More

My 10 year old son and i went white water rafting on the lower part of the river. The rapids were class 4 and 3. We had a great guide named Ryan. We had several kids on our raft and a grandma. He handled the raft very very well. No one fell out. which i was worried about initially. Actually... More

There was not much choice in run down Millinocket. We found the Scootic Inn on the recommendation of our motel. It was friendly and the beer and pizza were good. Not busy but more people inside than we would have expected.

Went out today by boat on a guided moose tour with NEOC. It was very worth waking up early for. We saw a momma and her baby as well as a lone female. We got lucky and also saw coyote, a loon, deer, turtle, and a swimming squirrel! The people were very friendly and helpful. Really liked our experience!

This is the third time we have rafted with NEOC and have not been disappointed yet! Matthew, our guide was excellent with lots of experience and patience. We rafted the Penobscot and had a glorious day . Awesome river side lunch cooked over a wood fire. They offer all sorts of rafting adventures to fit all levels of experiences desired.... More

It was our pleasure to take a moose gazing tour along the Golden Road. We did not see any moose. But, we had a great guide who kept looking diligently for the hiding, or should I say bashful, moose. I would recommend the tour to anyone who would like to see moose. I will go a little later in the... More

A pleasant 3 hour trip on Millinocket Lake by Pontoon searching for moose. Never saw one but the experience gave us many photo ops of the Mount Katahdin area. Guarantee another ride free anytime if we don't see a moose.

I have stayed three times at different NEOC cabins, and each time I think THIS is the best. They come in all sizes and types; they all have well-appointed kitchens and comfortable sleeping areas. The location is OUTSTANDING. The lake and the view of the mountain is almost too much, looks like a postcard. If you like silence, go end... More

I am writing this review with mixed feelings, on one hand we had a very good time with our guide and the fact that we did not see any wildlife was not her fault but on the other hand we expected more. We booked a day tour, a nice combination of hike, van and boat. The guide was a young... More
