Crab Apple Whitewater FAQs

Commonly Asked Questions

  What is the best time to raft?

SPRING because of higher water, bigger rapids and LOWER PRICES. Spring also brings a beautiful array of color and blooms.
SUMMER because water levels are guaranteed on our DAM CONTROLLED RIVERS and the water warms to 70 degrees and higher.
FALL because the water is still comfortable, the crowds are gone and the foliage is spectacular!
In other words, there is no "best" time to raft. All three seasons offer special features.

  Can I request my guide?

Please do! Our guides look forward to taking their favorite crews down the river again and again. But please remember that your favorite Crab Apple guide may already be requested or have other commitments preventing us from making any guarantees

  Do trips run in the rain?

Raft trips will not be cancelled due to weather unless Crab Apple deems that travel to the river from base camps or safety on the river will be compromised. Cancellations would be decided the morning of a trip at Crab Apple and full refunds issued.

Our trip on the Kennebec was awesome.

“Our guide was Rob and he hit every wave on the river just right. Our photos were fantastic and the video at ‘Magic Falls’ was spectacular. The meal afterwards was great and so was your entire staff. We’ll be back for the Kennebec and Dead River next trip!”
