White Water Rafting on the Penobscot River

 

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.

"We had a blast! Our guide kept us safe and happy! We were able to get in and ride the rapids a couple times. We had cool challenges and it was very exciting! Afterwards we returned to base camp for lunch, the steak was very tender and blueberry crumb cake was delicious. We would do this trip over and over again!"

"I have been rafting with Dave & Donna for 27 years. I have continued to stay with these folks because the are the BEST IN THE INDUSTRY! A well-run outfit with personable, knowledgeable guides who understand what it takes to make each and every run a run to remember! And if you really want to have some fun, go run Double Trouble on the Kennebec in the summertime. What is even better is watching the people you have rafted with for so long bringing their kids along for the trips now. My 4 teenage kids are TOTALLY HOOKED! They look forward to heading to Magic Falls Rafting every year now. The tradition has started. Congrats on 29 years Dave & Donna."
