Maine Canoe Trips

Guided Day & Overnight Canoe Trips

When we reflect on the state of Maine’s heritage, culture and traditions we naturally think about the earliest residents and their major form of transportation, the canoe!

Whether you are new to canoeing or experienced, Great Mountain Guide Service wants to get you out on the water! We offer a variety of guided activities with a focus on “paddle instruction”.

Owner and Registered Maine Guide, Jesika Lucarelli holds a guides license in Whitewater and Recreation from the state of Maine. Jesika has successfully guided groups across lakes and down rivers in Maine since 2012. She is a proud supporter and Pro-Staff Team Member at Old Town Canoe.

Justin Smulski

Tide to Pine

Great Mountain Guide Service is pleased to have partnered with Justin Smulski and Tide to Pine. GMGS and Tide to Pine will offer guests a three-day, two-night canoe camping adventure on the East Branch Penobscot River.

Justin is a fine dining chef turned freelance photographer with a portfolio based mostly around outdoor adventure, tourism, and guiding services/wilderness lodges. He was classically trained in French and Italian cuisine at Le Cordon Bleu in Cambridge, Massachusetts before cutting his teeth at restaurants in Boston, Massachusetts and Portland, Maine. Beyond his freelance photography work, he also offers small group culinary experiences, cooking classes, and private dinner events. He’s just as comfortable cooking in high-end restaurant kitchens as he is making risotto over a Jetboil in the backcountry.  He loves road trips with his friends, gas station crab rolls, a well-made Negroni in the woods, and making awful playlists for aforementioned headlamp cabin dance parties.
