Magic Falls Rafting Co.’s owners, Dave and Donna Neddeau, believe in contributing to the health, welfare, culture and education of communities in their home state of Maine. Since the company’s founding in 1989, the Neddeaus have contributed rafting trips for organizations' fund raising auctions and raffles. Magic Falls hosted a free day of rafting for military and first responders and a special rafting day to support Cassidy’s Kitchen in Winslow. The Neddeaus’ hometown honored them as the high school’s sports boosters of the year.
Beginning this season, Magic Falls launches a charitable giving program to support Maine businesses' and organizations' own designated charities. For companies, businesses and organizations booking group trips of 8 or more rafters, Magic Falls will contribute a portion of the regular per person full river trip price to that organization’s designated charity.
To make reservations and enroll your organization in the “Raft for Charity” program call 1-800-207-7238 or complete our trip planning form and include "Charity Group" under Type of Group.
"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."

"While these last few months have been trying times of adjustment for all of us, we are anxiously awaiting word that rafting season is a go for this year. It looks as though we will be able to put a group together for our annual trip down the Kennebec. We look forward to seeing all of you and spending what has become our favorite weekend of the year at Magic Falls. Every time we bring someone who is new to rafting they leave absolutely impressed with the professionalism and knowledge of all your staff and the family like courtesy that is extended to our group year after year. We look forward to a return to normal everyday activities and seeing all of you. Thank you for all you do for us year in and year out.

"Thank you for helping coordinate an awesome rafting trip for me and my 6 friends. Guide Eric Lundquist was perfect for us! We really enjoyed our time with him and all the ladies took something special from the day: overcame a fear, experienced something they never did before or just had a perfect time enjoying the beauty of the river. The stop at the waterfall was a highlight for everyone! Your business is absolutely wonderful!! I had such a good experience this past summer with my retreat that I am working on expanding and doing two retreats in 2018!"
