Maine Whitewater Rafting

Looking for adventurous and affordable summer fun? Find out why whitewater rafting is the best summer activity that provides a unique and memorable experience for families during their visit to Maine.

1. Great way to disconnect for awhile

During your vacation going on a rafting trip allows families to put technology aside for awhile as they whisk down the river. Therefore, making rafting the perfect way for families to reconnect with one another. All while leaving behind the demands of social media and work.

2. A great family bonding experience

Settling into the raft with your friends and family as you’re about to head down the river with excitement makes for a truly unforgettable family experience. Laughter and smiles are common when hitting big waves on the Kennebec River (and they may just be caught on camera)! In order to get down the river your guide needs everyone to work together while paddling. In addition, you may just make a few new friends along the way!

3. An opportunity to make lifelong friends

Whitewater rafting in Maine is a unique experience that allows people from all over to come together and make memories that will last a lifetime. During our riverside lunch is a great opportunity to get to know others on your raft! Or take in all the wisdom our experienced guides have to offer.

4. A learning experience

Our guides are very knowledgeable about both the river, and the surrounding areas. This allows guests to have a raft guide and tour guide all in one! So ask them questions about the river, their rafting experience, or anything about the surrounding Moosehead Lake area. They are happy to help!

5. Experience the outdoors in a different setting

Your morning will start out with a bus ride through the North Maine Woods. Providing ample opportunity to see Maine’s vast wildlife as you pass heavily wooded areas or clearcuts. So, if you don’t happen to spot a moose on your raft trip, consider booking a Moose Tour with us to increase your chances! Maine’s untouched beauty allows guests to feel more connected with nature, all while giving them a sense of peace throughout the day.

6. A great way to cool off in the summer months

What better way to spend a hot summer day than whitewater rafting on the Kennebec River? It’s the perfect summer activity! Let crashing waves cool you off as you’re paddling through the rapids. After that, take a swim on the lower section of the Kennebec. Let the current carry you and your crew down the river carelessly in the hot summer sun. Oh, and don’t forget the sunscreen!

7. Affordable price for a priceless experience

We strive to provide affordable rates for our guests to enjoy a day-long Maine whitewater rafting adventure. With the gear, transportation, and river-side lunch all included in the cost of your trip, the memories made are worth a lifetime. Who knows, it may be your new favorite hobby!

Some folks are looking for a thrill, meanwhile others may be apprehensive when stepping into the raft. We guarantee that whichever you are, you will go home feeling accomplished. Above all, our experienced guides ensure both safety and excitement throughout the day. Facing whitewater waves allows timid rafters to check overcoming a fear off their bucket list!

9. Whitewater rafting counts as exercise

Whitewater rafting is the perfect opportunity to bond with your family, but it is also considered a water sport. Which makes for an awesome way to get your body moving! Just like any other sport, you might find yourself a little sore the day after from all the muscles you worked.
