What People Are Saying About Maple Leaf Adventures

    “The weather was great, the wildlife more than cooperative. Obviously, the crew has no direct control over these things but with their local knowledge, they can improve your odds. The crew impressed with their caring, respect for, and attachment to the environment, animals, and peoples of the region. They informed and entertained while keeping us safe and so well fed”

    – Ron B., Tripadvisor
