Penobscot River Rafting
Rafting on the Penobscot River is one of the most spectacular and challenging whitewater river experiences in the eastern United States. It boasts a reputation of exhilarating rapids like Nesowdnehunk Fallls, Exterminator, the Staircase and the Cribworks. The Penobscot Trip begins on the lower river with Class I to III rapids, allowing rafters to enjoy the views and smaller surf holes and waterfalls before indulging in a riverside BBQ lunch. In the afternoon, rafters take on the upper river, at one point dropping over 70 feet per mile through a narrow, granite-walled canyon into two advanced Class V rapids. Minimum age to raft the full river is 15. Minimum age for lower river trips is 12.
"I am well versed in customer care and attention to detail. I make it my hobby to quietly observe all the finite things wherever I go. Your staff, your poise with somewhat difficult customers and your care to provide a first rate experience receives top billing from me. I will share the experience with friends and most importantly, when I come rafting again it will be with Magic Falls.

"This is my second time at Magic Falls. Each time, you guys have knocked it out of the park. I know you can't put a price on an unforgettable experience, but it still blows my mind the value you get from Magic Falls. The moment everyone got off the raft, coming back later this year was brought up immediately. Send out my heart felt thanks to the entire staff, and our river guides Chris and Ben for the awesome experience. I tried to leave glowing reviews on a couple websites because you guys probably deserve to be the most popular rafting place in Maine.

"We feel like we’re visiting family when we’re there.
I’ve come back every year since 2000 (17 years) and have never rafted with anyone else. Guests I’ve brought over the years have only had good things to say about the service and experience we get from Magic Falls Rafting Co.
Some of those guests had previously rafted with other outfits and have said they’d only raft with Magic Falls again.
