Magical Maine Whitewater Rafting Special




38 Dead River Road PO Box 9 West Forks, ME US 04985


Season from early May to Columbus Day



Maine is known as the last true wilderness of the East. What better way to experience Maine's natural beauty than a whitewater rafting trip on the historic Kennebec River (site of Benedict Arnold's fated 1776 march to capture Quebec.) Camp out under the stars alongside the Dead River or stay in The Dead River Lodge with private rooms and common area with big screen TV. In the morning you'll gear up and learn basic whitewater commands and safety procedures. A licensed whitewater guide will guide you down the river. You are the crew-usually of 6-8 paddlers-so be sure to paddle hard. The Magic Bus will transport you to the launch site at the Harris Station Hybropower Dam. The first six miles of your Kennebec whitewater trip travels through Class III-IV rapids and the high walled, evergreen-covered walls of the Kennebec Gorge. The final rapid is known as Magic Falls, after which our company is named. The last 6 miles of the trip is a time to relax with Class II rapids, a chance to try your hand at steering the raft, swimming in the river or just watching the wildlife. A favorite site is the osprey nest high in the treetops above the river where a pair of osprey have raised their young over the past 20 years. After take out, you'll be treated to an outdoor BBQ with choice of steak, chicken, fish or veggie burger,rice,coleslaw, rolls and homemade dessert. The trip finale is a slideshow or video of your trip. More fun? Hike top-down to 90 ft. Moxie Falls. Than it's time for rest.
