TRIP DESCRIPTION

After a hearty breakfast in our base lodge (included with rafting and lodging packages) each rafter begins by gearing up into comfortable river gear and listening to safety instruction from the day’s trip leader.

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.

After a short ride (shortest of all outfitters), the Kennebec River white water rafting adventure begins at Harris Station Dam and immediately enters a narrow gorge, hundreds of feet deep. Quickly picking up speed, rafts plunge through huge rolling waves and heart-pounding drops run expertly by our professional guides. Legendary Class 3 and 4 rapids such as “Big Mama” and “Magic Falls” await you at every turn for 7 miles.

The second part of the Kennebec River trip includes smaller rapids and opportunities to get out and float next to the raft. Water temperatures will top out in the mid-70’s in the summer making this fun for everyone. Our Kennebec rafting trip ends where it began, right back at our base—no cold, soggy shuttle ride back to Crab Apple! Walk out of your raft and into a hot shower in your room, hot tub or our swimming pool while your guides prepare a delicious cookout. After lunch we head to our comfortable conference room to view photos and video from your day on the Kennebec.

After whitewater rafting on the Kennebec River, many of our guests stay over for a second night and enjoy relaxing time in our pool, take a walk into Maine’s highest waterfall – Moxie Falls, or join the Nightfall Paintball game that begins ever day after rafting.

Rafting Includes: Safety instruction, licensed guide, PFD and helmet, transportation to and from river, cookout (steak, chicken, fish or vegetarian option), photo and video presentation of your adventure

Schedule: The Kennebec River rafting trip runs nearly every day from mid April through early October thanks to daily dam releases.
