Dead River Whitewater Rafting
The Dead River's spring runoff and heavy water releases make for the best wild whitewater adventure in New England. You'll cascade down 15 miles of almost continuous class II-V whitewater, in rapids like Spencer Rips, Hayden's Landing, Elephant Rock, the Mine Field and the infamous Poplar Falls, the longest continuous rapid in Maine. The ride is exhilarating. There are only a few release days available, and they quickly fill up, so make your reservations early. The 2019 Big Water releases are scheduled for Saturday May 11 and 18, (6,500 cfs) Sunday, May 26 (6000 cfs), and Saturday June 1 (5500 cfs), Sunday September 1 (5500 cfs) and the grand finale, Saturday October 5 (6000 cfs). Check out our Dead River Release rates.
(Magic Falls in the only company with base camp and take out on the Dead River. Minimum Age: 12 years.) $90.00 per person
Sport Boats - Whitewater Rafts
A sport boat is a 13-foot long raft, the smallest the State of Maine allows on the Dead River. These rafts are very responsive especially on lower water flows, so you can surf and play in the smaller rapids. Magic Falls Rafting Company was the first company to offer this kind of trip.
Add $10.00 per person to price of regular trip.
We try our hardest to offer the highest quality river experience at the lowest possible prices available.
Group discounts: available for church groups, youth groups, boy scouts, company groups, families and friends.
A Maine State Access Fee and meals tax of $13.40 per person is in addition to the Dead River Trip rate.

"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!"
"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."
"We just wanted to write you and convey what a wonderful trip we had this past weekend. We are excited to book our trip for next year and bring our son to start the next generation of our family down the Kennebec River with Magic Falls. We'd like to thank you again for everything you do for us, you show us every year why Magic Falls Rafting is truly the only name when it comes to whitewater rafting in Maine.

"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!"
