Have you been on an outfitted trip in the past where things weren't up to your standard? Did an outfitter forget your tent stakes? How about the fuel for your stove? Maybe you were left without a sleeping bag. What about service? Were you pleased with how you were treated? We understand the importance of quality equipment and service and will ensure you receive the very best.
If you were left with something to be desired after your last outfitting experience, we ask that you let us fulfill those desires for you.
And if this is your first time on a canoe trip, you've found the right place. We will take care of you and walk you through every step of the way. Not sure yet? Read some of our testimonials, or better yet, email us and ask for references. Nothing speaks louder than satisfied customers.
So if you've answered yes to any one of the above questions, your next step is to pick up the phone and call us or send us an email with your plans, desires or concerns and we will be glad to start planning your customized canoe trip with you today.

''Thank you for the perfect service we received from Seagull Outfitters this past week. When we were planning our trip, I called a friend to ask for outfitter suggestions. Without pausing he said, ''Call Debbie at Seagull Outfitters. She's the one you want to go through.'' He was right. From the moment we pulled into the parking lot until we left the dock, your staff's attention was entirely on us. Their help with route and portage suggestions, equipment selections, and fire information were greatly appreciated. Again, when we returned, a staff person was on the dock to greet us, tie up the canoes, and help us with our equipment. I'm hoping to be up again this summer and you can be sure that I will be giving you a call to set up our trip.''
