Whitewater rafting in Maine is the perfect 3-season adventure for the whole family! Maine’s wild and tumbling rivers provide challenging rapids that thrill both first-timers and experienced whitewater enthusiasts alike. Spring, summer, and fall each offer signature experiences, and Maine Woods Discovery certified outfitters provide professional guides and all the gear you need. The personal attention from family-friendly hosts will ensure an unforgettable, safe rafting experience that everyone, of all ages and abilities, will enjoy.

Each of the Maine Woods’ popular rafting destinations offers several different kinds of experiences. The Kennebec River is famous for its deep gorge and continuous roller-coaster waves, while also offering leisurely float opportunities. Some sections of the Penobscot River are technical and challenging, while others offer a relaxing and flexible

“soft adventure” experience – all with outstanding views of Baxter State Park. The Dead River, only runnable during the 10-15 dam releases that occur each year, offers more continuous whitewater than any other river in the Northeast. Choose the best fit for you, and plan an all-inclusive vacation with a Maine Woods Discovery whitewater rafting outfitter. You’ll get all you need to paddle your way through some of Maine’s most exciting and scenic rapids.
