Safety and Liability

Before your river trek begins, we give a brief safety talk. This not only is a precautionary safety measure, but lets you in on some river insights from the river guides' point of view. All guides are trained in first aid, CPR, and water rescue. Of course, Coast Guard approved life jackets and all safety equipment are provided.

Whitewater rafting is a physical sport which involves inherent risks, so we do everything possible to insure a safe trip. Because of the nature of outdoor recreational sports, we do not accept responsibility for personal safety and we are not liable for lost or damaged personal items. All rafters are required to sign a Waiver of Liability and Risk Assumption.

Magic Falls Rafting reserves the right to change the trip itinerary should water conditions create flows too high or too low.

What to Wear

For your comfort, you should bring a bathing suit, sneakers, shorts, sweater, hat, windbreaker, or quick-drying nylon clothing. No cotton please!

On the spring and fall trips we require that you wear a wetsuit while on the river. You are welcome to rent one of our suits or bring one of your own. Rental of a full suit is $15.00, a half is $8.00, and booties are $5.00. Bring wool socks.

Please don't forget to bring a change of dry clothing and footwear for your trip home!

"Just wanted to drop a quick note to say what a great trip we had. The double run was awesome and Chris gave us an amazing ride. Can I request him for next year now? Thanks again and see you all next year if not sooner."
Chuck, Haverhill, Mass.

"I want to tell you what a great time we had with your rafting company. Everything was so well organized, so thorough, well prepared, no short cuts taken, so much fun and fully worth the price in all ways. I don't find myself saying that much these days but I say it freely regarding Magic Falls and your staff. Thank you for treating us as guests and yet friends at the same time."
Richard T, Chester County, PA

"I would like to personally thank you for the amazing adventure you organized for Auburn High School last week. The amount of times that I heard the students say that it was the best weekend/trip EVER on the way home told me that this is a trip that they will remember for the rest of their lives. Your hospitality, professionalism, river expertise, and overall easy going nature made my students and I feel comfortable, safe, and relaxed. You present students with a once of a lifetime experience of bonding and adventure and I will highly recommend your company to everyone I talk to!"
Spencer K. Auburn, Mass, High School

"Thanks for an amazing adventure. 11 Wild Women rafting! Thank goodness we got the DVD because no one would believe we really did it. We had a blast. You run a class operation. All of your guides were hospitable and respectful. The whole adventure was perfect."
Lee-Ann G., Portsmouth. NH
