People Whitewater Rafting on the Seboomook River

The gem of the North Maine Woods is the Seboomook section of the Penobscot River, where whitewater rafting becomes a day for playing in the bubbling rapids. Spring snowmelt means high volume Maine rafting with class III and IV rapidly flowing sections of whitewater on the Seboomook. During the summer months, there are consistent river flows that are great for youth and families that want to experience whitewater rafting, but want a milder Maine rafting trip. We raft the Seboomook section of the Penobscot River twice for maximum whitewater fun. There are ten ledge drops that create big waves, hydraulics, and rafting features that make this white water rafting trip exciting for everyone. Paddle hard through The Jaws, play and surf at Particle Accelerator and let’s see your moves at Move Maker. The Seboomook section of the Penobscot River is ideal for beginner rafters or anyone that is ready to try their hand at navigating their own inflatable kayak through the labyrinth of this river’s whitewater.  Explore a unique whitewater rafting playground experiencing our Seboomook White Water Rafting and whitewater raft and kayak trips in Maine during scheduled releases.
