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.

 

"Bravo to Magic Falls Rafting! We took my 19/16 year old kids. The whole place was so impressive, great lunch, awesome guides, great pictures."

"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."

"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!"
