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.

Lower Kennebec River Rafting

The Lower Kennebec trip is for those who wish to avoid the bigger whitewater of the upper gorge and meet their friends half-way to enjoy two hours of milder whitewater.

Spend the pre-trip orientation time with your friends at the base, then ride with them to the spectacular Harris Station put-in and watch them launch the rafts into the upper gorge. As they raft the upper section, ride shuttle down river to the half-way access point. They will soon arrive and you can jump in with them to enjoy the second half of the Kennebec, including milder rapids and beautiful scenery. Finally, join them for a hearty cookout back at Crab Apple after the trip.

 

I just wanted to say thank you for an amazing day with all of you.

“We had an absolute BLAST!!! We brought a “block party” trip from our neighborhood. The kids had fun – the adults had fun – it was a fabulous day all around. You did everything right, not a single complaint. Your staff was amazing! We had so much fun with them…Please tell them we all said thank you.”
