Magic Falls Rafting-A Maine Family Company

Celebrating 27 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.

The Magic Falls Staff at Our Maine Lodge: Our expert rafting guides help make your adventure on the Kennebec River and Dead River fun, safe and exciting.

 

"I want to tell you what a great time we had with your rafting company. Everything was so well organized, so thorough, well prepared, no short cuts taken, so much fun and fully worth the price in all ways. I don't find myself saying that much these days but I say it freely regarding Magic Falls and your staff. Thank you for treating us as guests and yet friends at the same time."

"I would like to personally thank you for the amazing adventure you organized for Auburn High School last week. The amount of times that I heard the students say that it was the best weekend/trip EVER on the way home told me that this is a trip that they will remember for the rest of their lives. Your hospitality, professionalism, river expertise, and overall easy going nature made my students and I feel comfortable, safe, and relaxed. You present students with a once of a lifetime experience of bonding and adventure and I will highly recommend your company to everyone I talk to!"
