Magic Rivers Multi-Gorge Adventure

 Cover Photo

In 2009 Magic Falls Rafting Co. was the first outfitter to offer a high-adventure, action-packed double run of the Upper Kennebec Gorge.

To meet demand for this new trip, Dave founded a new company, Magic Rivers, dedicated to our adult thrill-seeking rafters.

  We raft the five mile Upper Kennebec Gorge through Class III-V whitewater, take out at Carry Brook,* return to Harris station and ride the Upper Gorge again.  After take-out at Carry Brook*, we return to base camp for a hearty barbecue.  The Multi-Gorge Adventure is offered any day including high water release days. A minimum of 8 passengers per trip is required. We will try to combine passengers from different parties to qualify for the minimum. A fee of $10.90 per person will be charged to cover the State of Maine River Access Levy and meals tax.

$119   Minimum age 10

Or... Try our Cheap Thrills Trip    Arrive at 9:00 am, raft the Upper Gorge , take out at Carry Brook* and return to base camp by 1:00 pm.  Bring your own lunch and refreshments and use our picnic area and recreational amenities after the trip.  A great way to experience Maine rafting while saving time and money. Trips are subject to availability.  $44 per person plus access fee of $5.90.   Minimum age 10.

* Please note that the take out at Carry Brook requires a climb of 90 feet out of the gorge.  The wooden staircase has rest areas along the way.  If you are on a Cheap Thrills trip and prefer an hour and half additional float out, please indicate your preference at base camp check-in.

"Hi Team,

I went on the Dead River yesterday with Justin as our guide. I wanted to let you know how much fun we all had. Justin was great and so was all your staff! Thank you for helping us make memories for our family.

"What an amazing time! This was our first time! It was high water and the rapids tremendous- needless to say we were nervous. Chris was the best guide. He made us feel safe and comfortable, was friendly, knowledgeable and super helpful! The BBQ was perfect and all the staff friendly, patient and helpful. We stayed at the Inn - conveniently located right next to starting point, comfortable and a great view.
