Maine’s Premiere Guide Training Program

About Us

For nearly 30 years, Fins & Furs Adventures Maine Guide School has prepared successful applicants for the Maine Guides License Exam.

Preparing Succesful Maine Guide’s License Candidates for 28 years

Fins & Furs Adventures, Maine Guide School is the longest running program in the State, with 2020 marking our 28th year. Over the past two decades we have seen thousands of students, many who now run very successful Guide businesses.

In addition to preparing for the guide’s exam, we enjoy watching class participants grow their confidence and skills, and become better woodsman. Participants will also be given a wealth of information on starting and running a guiding business which we have gained through three decades of experience.

Carroll and Lila Ware are both Master Maine Guides with over 30 years of experience guiding hunters and fishermen. In addition to their Maine guide preparation classes, for over 30 years, they have enjoyed leading hunting and fishing groups to destinations throughout North and South America.
