Commonly Asked Questions
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.
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
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.
Action is the Name of the Game!
Our Guided Row Frame trip allows you to experience the thrills of the Kennebec gorge while holding on and letting one of our expert guides row through the big waves. This a great activity for families with younger rafters (ages 8-11) or any group that would rather enjoy the action while holding on through the big whitewater. The Row Frame rafts follow along with the paddle rafts through the same rapids and section of river.
Crab Apple is certainly the BEST RUN outfit in the northeast...
