"We had a family outing on the Kennebec, with our Guides JJ and Molly. A true experience of a lifetime, but one that will be repeated soon! From checking in and being assigned our rafting guides and a quick but thorough instruction of our "responsibilities" on the river, off to the buses and onto the Dam. Once on the river, it was a thrill of a lifetime, one made even better by our Guides, JJ and Molly (we had two rafts...) At the end of an exciting trip a wonderful barbecue awaited some hungry rafters! All the Staff of Magic Falls were exceptional and professional but most of all lots of fun which is what we went for."
David M, Maine
