Join Our Team Providing Hospitality for our Guests
Magic Falls has positions available for licensed Maine whitewater guides, marketing and reservations management, and food and lodging management for the 2020 Season.
Our whitewater training will be held from May 22-30, 2020. The training will include Safety Techniques, River Etiquette, Daily Procedures, River Rescue and lots and lots of whitewater rafting!!!! In short, everything you will need to pass the Maine Whitewater Rafting Guide Exam for the Kennebec River, except for CPR and Basic First Aid. These can be acquired through the Red Cross and must be completed prior to whitewater training.
To enroll in the guide training session, a $50.00 non refundable deposit is due with your application. To compensate Magic Falls for the remaining cost of guide training, you will be required to provide three, non-paid guided trips. This fee includes staying at Magic Falls Rafting campground, a training manual, and use of all needed equipment (wetsuits, life jacket, and paddle). You will be responsible for your meals. The training classes will be limited to 18, so if you are interested you should let us know right away.
After you have completed the guide training you will be ready to take the State exam for the Kennebec and Dead Rivers and become a Registered Maine Whitewater Guide (level I). Application and testing fee is $103.00. License fee is $90.00 for two years. As a Registered Maine Whitewater Guide you will be able to work for any rafting outfitter. However, we do ask you to train with us if you plan to work for our company. We prefer to hire the guides we train, as our program focuses on the high standards and ethical conduct we require from everyone on our staff. Our guides earn a daily wage plus tips and dinner.
If you have any questions, or need more information, please call 1-800-207-7238.
For guide applicants-please submit this application along with your nonrefundable $ 50 deposit. (This is non refundable for any reason!) by mailing a check, or call us with credit card information.

"First time white-water rafting and this experience blew all my expectations out of the water! They go through all safety protocol and we felt balanced with safety precautions and the thrill of risk. Next time, we might try out the overnight cabins they have on site. Will absolutely be back!"

"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
"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."

"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.
