Magic Falls Rafting-A Maine Family Company

Celebrating 32 years of White Water Rafting in Maine

Maine white water rafting is more than "just a business" to us. It is even more than the thrill of whitewater. It is a time to shed worries and stress - a time to smile and laugh, a time to be part of the river's unending flow. Come feel and enjoy our natural high. Let the river be yours, too. Magic Falls Whitewater Rafting Company strives to individualize your experience by keeping our groups small. We aim first for safety. Second, for a rafting trip that touches the heart and excites the soul! That's our mission.

Magic Falls Rafting Company was founded in 1989 by David Neddeau. His love of the whitewater rivers and his knowledge says it all. He wanted to create a whitewater rafting trip that everyone would remember, from the first minute they arrived at Magic Falls until they left. This is probably the reason Magic Falls has had so much success!

David and Donna started out with one raft, one trailer, and not much else, except David's dream. Twenty five years later, Magic Falls now has over 40 rafts, 25 inflatable kayaks, buses, vans, trucks and 60-70 of the best guides you will ever meet. Some of their guiding staff have been with them since 1989. Accommodations consist of the Dead River Lodge with king queen and bunk rooms, the Rivers Inn, a housekeeping guesthouse for groups of 16 and, a campground with camping sites and cabin tents, In 2010 Dave founded Magic Rivers, a rafting company dedicated to offering a double run of the Upper Kennebec Gorge. The Magic Rivers Multi-Gorge trip is for thrill-seeking adventurers. In 2013 Dave added the "Cheap Thrills" Trip offering vacationers a chance to experience Maine rafting without a huge investment in time and money.

 

"Magic Falls made our rafting experience absolutely perfect. Some rafting guides take you along for “their” ride where the guides at Magic Falls make the experience about their guests. Haley was extremely enthusiastic, accommodating and a pleasure to spend time with. 10/10 recommend this company!"

"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 the best time rafting the Kennebec with Magic Falls. We took my father and 3 teenagers for a wild ride. The experience of the our guide Joe and Chris on the other raft made for a much more exciting ride than a previous trip we took with another rrafting company. True professionals, safe and highly skilled."

"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!"
