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.

"The crew at Magic Falls Rafting Company is among the most experienced in this Maine town that offers not much more than an exciting rafting experience. I had rafted 50 years ago when rafting was an unregulated, somewhat risky enterprise. This company appears to be very safety oriented."
Paul, Rhode Island

"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."
Fivos, Boston, MA

"We had the best time rafting the Kennebec with Magic Falls. We took my father and 3 teenagers for a wild ride. The experience of the our guide Joe and Chris on the other raft made for a much more exciting ride than a previous trip we took with another rrafting company. True professionals, safe and highly skilled."

"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!"
