Our whitewater training will be held from May 26 to June 3, 2017. 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 $65.00 to $85.00 per day plus tips and dinner.
If you have any questions, or need more information, please call 1-800-207-7238.
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.
"Thanks for an excellent day on the river, whether it's raining or sunshine it's always an amazing day. Every single employee is happy with smiles on their faces and always willing to help and do whatever it takes to make our experience incredible. We’ll be back next year!

"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.

"Thanks for an amazing adventure. 11 Wild Women rafting! Thank goodness we got the DVD because no one would believe we really did it. We had a blast. You run a class operation. All of your guides were hospitable and respectful. The whole adventure was perfect."

"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."
