Martin Brown, Director
Dear friends and future
patrons of Sunrise;
This will be our 34st
season. Originally founded in 1973, (before the term adventure
travel was even coined ), SUNRISE's origins were as a traditional
Maine guiding outfit. As times changed, and peoples' taste in river
travel became more eclectic, we went with the flow -
evolving into a unique and valued resource for open canoeists. Although
our current itineraries range from the High Arctic to the Rio
Grande, our heritage still remains that of the legendary Maine
Guides. Our style combines the best elements of traditional
northern guiding and canoemanship, with contemporary whitewater
and expedition techniques. We pride ourselves on our established
international reputation as one of North America's premier expedition
outfitters - specializing in trips solely for the open canoeist.
Rivers are our business.
Appealing to a select
and discriminating clientele, we strive to incorporate the highest
degree of open canoe technique and expedition expertise with an
uncommonly wide range of intriguing and exciting wild river destinations.
While some seek the ultimate in spectacular surroundings and remote
locales, other seem to crave the simple pleasures and quiet beauty
of the smaller rivers. We also try to incorporate into our trips
a cultural perspective, hiking, and other forms of wilderness travel.
Essentially, we try to have something for everyone.
Our guiding staff, many
of whom have been associated with SUNRISE for 15-25 years, include
some of the Northeast's leading river professionals. We maintain
the same commitment to individualized service that has characterized
our operation since its earliest days. We enjoy serving our clientele
- many of whom have become personal friends over the years. Our
success would not have been possible without these resources - the
ongoing services of a highly skilled, seasoned, and dedicated staff;
and the gratifying loyalty of our clientele. We truly appreciate
your continued interest and support.
Hopefully, you will find
something within our offerings to spark your interest. Each year
we add one or two new and very exciting world-class
itineraries. As far as we're concerned, the desire to be on
river, and to explore, is a basic element of human nature
- why not appease it!
