Rafting the Dead River with North Country Rivers is an experience you will remember for a lifetime! Located in remote Maine, the river is an absolute "gem." Until more recently, it had no regularly scheduled dam releases so it was known only to locals. Even today, it doesn't have "daily releases" like The Kennebec and Penobscot. So don't miss a chance to raft this river - especially at high flow levels. It's nothing short of amazing!

If you're looking for a great adventure on "The Dead," then you only have limited release dates each year. Of these dates, there's really only 2 types of release; "moderate-to-high", and "moderate". Spring releases are almost always the highest. Summer is when the moderate releases dominate.

You begin your Dead River rafting adventure by being driven by bus into the Maine woods. During the drive on paper company roads, don't be surprised if you see Moose, Bear, Deer, logging trucks, an Osprey or even an Eagle. Except for all the rafters and some hard-core kayakers, this is a completely undeveloped portion of Maine - and it's truly beautiful.
