The Kennebec River is located in the heart of Maine’s whitewater country. The river includes 12 miles of fast, deep water that flows daily. The upper Kennebec gorge is where you’ll ride the thrilling roller coaster waves of Big Mama and the Three Sisters, then plunge into boiling Magic Falls. From there you’ll paddle your way down the lower river on sit-on-top kayaks to look for wildlife. The Kennebec is ideal for families and first time rafters. You’re guaranteed to get wet with waves cresting from 4 to 8 feet high!
The whitewater rafting experience on the Upper River is designed for ages 10 and up. The Lower River is designed for ages 7 and up.
To better serve you, we now outfit trips in the Katahdin Region of Maine, and on the West Branch of the Penobscot River, Maine’s premier river offering a quality, versatile outdoor adventure experience on class I-V whitewater, and backed by our award winning facilities and service.
