Whitewater Rafting in Maine, how about it?
The Penobscot River is an epic river with over 11 named rapids ranging from Class I-V.  Penobscot River rafting is not like rafting on other rivers; each river has its own unique features, but the Penobscot is the most challenging in Maine and most consistently run. Raft through the beautiful Ripogenus Gorge, catch stunning views of Mount Katahdin and spot native Maine wildlife such as eagles and moose.
Let's make this an adventure to remember.
