Awesome Adrenaline Experience

[July 13, 2017] A review from a guest tells it all about our upper gorge trip-My group of 3 chose the 'cheap thrills' option which is 1 run down the river where they let you off at a gorge.

Safety First

[June 18, 2017] A nice review from a guest who rafted with us on a Kennebec Turbine Test 8,000 cfs. This is a smaller company but the service is more personal and the best value in the area.

"I just had to let you know that the crew from Johnny’s Selected Seeds had an AWESOME time on Friday, June 15th! Out of the six of us, four had never been white water rafting before and we all loved it! I can speak for myself and tell you I could easily be addicted to rafting! The weather was unbelievable. The lunch was really good and our guide was fantastic! I do believe we may book again in the fall. I don’t think I can wait until next year! :) Thanks again!"

"I have been rafting with Dave & Donna for 27 years. I have continued to stay with these folks because the are the BEST IN THE INDUSTRY! A well-run outfit with personable, knowledgeable guides who understand what it takes to make each and every run a run to remember! And if you really want to have some fun, go run Double Trouble on the Kennebec in the summertime. What is even better is watching the people you have rafted with for so long bringing their kids along for the trips now. My 4 teenage kids are TOTALLY HOOKED! They look forward to heading to Magic Falls Rafting every year now. The tradition has started. Congrats on 29 years Dave & Donna."

"This is my second time at Magic Falls. Each time, you guys have knocked it out of the park. I know you can't put a price on an unforgettable experience, but it still blows my mind the value you get from Magic Falls. The moment everyone got off the raft, coming back later this year was brought up immediately. Send out my heart felt thanks to the entire staff, and our river guides Chris and Ben for the awesome experience. I tried to leave glowing reviews on a couple websites because you guys probably deserve to be the most popular rafting place in Maine.
