The Maine Professional Guides Association is composed of Registered Maine Guides who strive to enhance the standards of the guiding industry. They are professional guides dedicated to promoting a quality, ethical and legal outdoor experience for all. Guides Licenses are issued for the categories of Hunting, Fishing, Recreation, Sea Kayaking and Whitewater Rafting (for rafting trips on specific rivers). A Master Guide license is held by the most experienced guides, and often covers multiple categories such as hunting, fishing and recreation.
