Canada Falls Rafting Description

Map of Canada Falls

Ready to step it up a notch and challenge yourself at a more technical white water rafting experience? Canada Fall is the river for you. The South Branch of the Penobscot River Canada Falls section is located in the scenic and wild North Maine Woods. Near the Greenville, Bar Harbor and Bangor areas, our Canada Falls rafting day trip offers personalization to the extreme, since you will experience a day of whitewater rafting, with no crowds, just rumbling whitewater in the pristine wilderness of Maine. Canada Falls is a class V river, with steep drops. The whitewater excitement builds from the rafting launch to the take out. Get loosened up in the class III rapids until you hear the thundering rumble of a 20 foot waterfall called The Slide! As the whitewater excitement builds there are rapids with names to challenge your guide’s decision-making at Upper and Lower Split Decision, technical, must make moves and hydraulics around every turn. Canada Falls is a unique, one of a kind, white water rafting trip, since it is only run on Saturday’s during the summer. Join a pioneer of Canada Falls river rafting when you whitewater raft with Northeast Whitewater on the class V rapids of Canada Falls. We raft this river twice, so you will experience double the class V’s, double the thrill and guarantee double the white water rafting Maine excitement. Saturday whitewater rafting on Canada Falls fills up fast, so give us a call to reserve your next thrill of a lifetime.
