Our #1 Penobscot River rafting adventure is our full river rafting trip; challenge the whitewater rapids from class III-V whitewater excitement! You will whitewater raft over a natural waterfall known as Nesowadnehunk Falls; whitewater surf the falls or enjoy a natural rockslide downstream knows as Nesowadnehunk Stream. Better known as “the stream”; it’s a beautifully smooth rock ledge that guests enjoy swimming down and sliding into the large eddy pool at the bottom. Abol and Pockwockamus Falls offer class III-IV whitewater, with big waves, turbulent holes and exciting whitewater.
Enjoy our riverside BBQ lunch mid day. Our Registered Maine raft guides serve up hearty home cooked BBQ of steaks, chicken, vegetable stir fry rice, pasta salad, bread and brownies. This is a great feast to get guests fueled up for the adrenaline rush of our Penobscot rafting adventures challenging the rapids of the gorge and Penobscot River cribworks. The class V Penobscot River gorge and cribworks rapid are the most adventurous whitewater rafting sections with big waves, steep drops, huge boulders and beefy hydraulics. This is an adventurous rafting section only for the most adventurous whitewater rafters. After the big stuff, take a dip in the river before tackling Class IV Amberjackwockamus falls, or “Amberjack”. This rapid is all about surfs up and a super spot to surf the rapids!
