Magic Falls Rafting - A Maine Family Company

Celebrating 28 Years of White Water Rafting in Maine!

Maine white water rafting is more than "just a business" to us. It is even more than the thrill of whitewater. It is a time to shed worries and stress - a time to smile and laugh, a time to be part of the river's unending flow. Come feel and enjoy our natural high. Let the river be yours, too. Magic Falls Rafting Company strives to individualize your experience by keeping our groups small. We aim first for safety. Second, for a rafting trip that touches the heart and excites the soul! That's our mission.

Magic Falls Rafting Company was founded in 1989 by David Neddeau. His love of the whitewater rivers and his knowledge says it all. He wanted to create a whitewater rafting trip that everyone would remember, from the first minute they arrived at Magic Falls until they left. This is probably the reason Magic Falls has had so much success!

David and Donna started out with one raft, one trailer, and not much else, except David's dream. Twenty five years later, Magic Falls now has over 40 rafts, 25 inflatable kayaks, buses, vans, trucks and 60-70 of the best guides you will ever meet. Some of their guiding staff have been with Magic since 1989. Accommodations consist of the Dead River Lodge with king, queen and bunk rooms, the Rivers Inn, a housekeeping guesthouse for groups of 16 and, a campground with camping sites and cabin tents, In 2010 Dave founded Magic Rivers, a rafting company dedicated to offering a double run of the Upper Kennebec Gorge. The Magic Rivers Multi-Gorge trip is for thrill-seeking adventurers. In 2013, he added the "Cheap Thrills" Trip, a quick and inexpensive way to experience whitewater rafting in Maine.

"We had a blast! Our guide kept us safe and happy! We were able to get in and ride the rapids a couple times. We had cool challenges and it was very exciting! Afterwards we returned to base camp for lunch, the steak was very tender and blueberry crumb cake was delicious. We would do this trip over and over again!"
Melissa H, Houston, TX

"Our guide was very knowledgeable, rafting Kennebec was a blast. Magic Falls runs a great operation, equipment was more decent than other companies we’ve tried in the past and our experience was very memorable."
Fivos, Boston, MA

"Thank you all so much for taking care of us again this year. Zero complaints yet again and everyone had a wonderful time, including the new people. You all are the best and hope you have a strong closing to the season.

Dan S, Massachusetts

"We feel like we’re visiting family when we’re there.
I’ve come back every year since 2000 (17 years) and have never rafted with anyone else. Guests I’ve brought over the years have only had good things to say about the service and experience we get from Magic Falls Rafting Co.
Some of those guests had previously rafted with other outfits and have said they’d only raft with Magic Falls again.
