The Class IV Kennebec River Gorge is by far the most popular whitewater rafting trip in New England. Once you experience the beauty, excitement and FUN, you'll know why!
With consistent daily water releases from Harris Station dam, optimum flow levels are assured throughout the season. There are also LARGE "spring-like" releases during summer called "turbine test releases." These generate REALLY BIG rapids for INCREDIBLE FUN (especially when the weather is HOT). Another great aspect of the Kennebec River is that it's WATER IS WARM - even in the spring. In the fall, it also displays spectacular colors all along its steep-walled gorge.
The Kennebec River is not a rocky, technical river. Instead, it's a very deep, fast mover with big "fun" wave trains. This is why it's the ideal rafting trip for beginners, youth groups, families, and experienced rafters alike.
Right from the start, you'll have a smile glued to your face. You'll also begin to see why thousands of whitewater enthusiasts flock to the Kennebec every year (young and old alike).
We can configure your trip to include more than just rafting too. For example, we can include a Moose/wildlife watching tour, an morning or evening, half-day or full-day ATV trip, or a fly fishing trip. If you're going to stay for multiple days, we can arrange cabin rentals, tent camping, RV site camping and even full meals - in any combination (see packages and pricing links above and to the right).
So what are you waiting for? Why not experience an unforgettable Maine adventure vacation? You'll want to come back too - as most of our guests do!
