Our Family & Our Staff

Our Family & Our Staff

In 1981, we moved from suburban Boston to The Forks, Maine - population 30. We bought Crab Apple Acres Inn and welcomed rafters, hunters and fishermen. In 1983, Crab Apple Whitewater was born. It consisted of two rafts, an old van, the Inn and our most valuable asset, our family - Chuck, Sharyn, Jennifer and Robert. More than twenty years of rafting have passed since then. Our family has grown, Crab Apple Whitewater has grown, but our philosophy has remained the same. Our family strives to maintain an atmosphere and a staff that is committed to treat each guest as the most important guest of the year.

Many of our competitors claim to have the same philosophy, but we practice what we preach. "Family owned and operated" is not just a catch phrase for our brochure. You may make your reservation with Sharyn or Carrie. Chuck and Robert will be coordinating or guiding your rafting trip down one of our Maine rivers. Jennifer and Frank will be running and guiding your rafting trips in Massachusetts.

Personal, caring attention is a guarantee at Crab Apple Whitewater. We achieve this by hiring according to our philosophy and by having family members participate in each Crab Apple rafting trip. We are proud to say that Crab Apple has grown to become the largest rafting company in New England.

Join us this season and become part of our growing family of rafters who know that Crab Apple Whitewater offers the finest service with a personal touch.
