Musings on the Kennebec

[June 9, 2016] How do you define happiness?  I define happiness as a choice in life. Your job can have a tremendous influence on happiness. As whitewater raft guides we are able to bring other people into our world where they can have fun, and experience something so profound and intriguing. We love it when… Read more


April at Magic Falls

[April 3, 2016] We've had a strange winter. Lots of precipitation but too often the snow changed to rain. Unusual for Maine but at least there's plenty of water in the rivers and no flooding this year.  It will be easier opening up base camp without having  to dig out from under the snow.  The water… Read more

Kennebec Rafting Guide Tradition

[July 18, 2015] Today was a day well spent on the river. My crew was a troop of Boy Scouts and the water was raging. Their leader was the same rafting guide that took me down the river when I was 10. I fully attribute my love of the Kennebec River to him. On the way down we taught the Scouts how to read the water… Read more


Never use Your Mobile GPS in Maine

"I am well versed in customer care and attention to detail. I make it my hobby to quietly observe all the finite things wherever I go. Your staff, your poise with somewhat difficult customers and your care to provide a first rate experience receives top billing from me. I will share the experience with friends and most importantly, when I come rafting again it will be with Magic Falls.

"It was my wife's 50th birthday and she wanted to celebrate in a special way. The trip we had was indeed special. What made it special was the way the employees and river guides catered to our group. She couldn't have celebrated her 50th any better."
Sal C., Needham Heights, MA

"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.
