Magic Falls has positions available for licensed Maine whitewater guides, marketing and reservations management, and food and lodging management for the 2019 Season.    

Whitewater Guides

Our whitewater training will be held from May 24-June 1, 2019. 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. Additional training is required for the Penobscot River (level II). 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.

Thank you,

Dave Neddeau

"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."

"Just wanted to let you know that my friends and I had such a wonderful weekend at your place, they want to go back in August! It’s sounding like our group will be even bigger because word-of-mouth has caused more interest. Your team made us feel welcome and safe. Kudos to Sean for leading the way...and for plucking me out of the river twice!!!
