Around 1:00 pm you'll be back at base camp where you can take off for your next Maine adventure. If you have packed your own lunch and refreshments, feel free to have lunch at our picnic area and enjoy some of our other recreational amenities.
Reservations must be made at least 24 hours in advance. Minimum age 10. All our trips are subject to availability. We will endeavor to combine passengers from different parties and full day trips to help insure trip availability. A fee of $5 per person will be charged for the State of Maine Access levy.

Reservations may be made on-line or by phoning 1-800-207-7238.
"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!"

"Our guide was very knowledgeable, rafting Kennebec was a blast. Magic Falls runs a great operation, equipment was more decent than other companies we’ve tried in the past and our experience was very memorable."

"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!"
