The Adventure Begins!

Maine Adventures, LLC has officially launched.

After spending many years guiding business clients to the successful completion of their mission critical projects, I’ll now “also” be guiding my adventurous clientele into the woods and on the waters of Maine.

This is especially important, given a recent article in the Bangor Daily News, where it was mentioned:

As people spend more time in front of screens and children grow up with what author Richard Louv calls “nature deficit disorder,” the role of the Registered Maine Guide may be more important than ever.

Maine Adventures, LLC offers multi-day, off the grid, Northwoods adventures such as canoeing and camping on the Allagash Wilderness Waterway.


We also offer easily accessible day tours within the great state of Maine, such as kayak or Jet Ski tours of Sebago Lake, which is within striking distance of Portland and Boston.

Since our website shares how we got here as well as information on the cool things we’ll be doing, I’ll simply point you to:, to learn more.

At this point, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the people who helped make this a reality.

It starts with my Dad (Dick Bailey) for instilling the love and knowledge of the Maine woods in me, at a very early age. I’ll never forget the numerous excursions he led my brothers and I on to Baxter State Park, hikes into Horserace Pond to camp and catch brook trout, and many others!

I must also thank my Mom (Gail) for her never-ending encouragement, support and frequent bandaging sessions as she patched-up my brothers and I after our countless mis-adventures as children 🙂

In addition, I’d like to thank 2 Master Registered Maine Guides for their impact on my decision and preparation to become a guide myself.

First, Blaine Miller (a.k.a. The Allagash Guide) for the absolutely outstanding experience he provided during our 2013 trip on the Allagash. If anyone is the master of the Allagash Wilderness Waterway, it is he.

Second, Captain John Rogers of Maine’s Outdoor Learning Center, for his thorough training and counsel in advance of my taking the State of Maine exam, to become a Registered Maine Guide.

Last, but not least, I’ll thank my wife Cindy and the boys (Ian, Aaron, Ethan and Evan) for their never-ending patience on our journeys on and off the grid as well as their inspiration to keep this dream alive!

You’ll note they don’t look any worse for the wear after being dragged around the planet 🙂  You’ll likely meet one or more of these awesome individuals on our excursions.

The above gives so much meaning to the following quote…

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. ~ Izaak Walton

In closing, this new adventure has begun!

If you are considering an excursion in the great state of Maine please check out our website. If you have questions or are ready to initiate an adventure feel free to contact us. We’d be happy to discuss your ambitions and put together a trip for you, your family and friends.

I hope to see you out there – in the woods and on the waters of Maine!
