If you’re looking for an experience that will be the highlight of your summer – or even your year – head to the river! A day of whitewater rafting on one of Maine’s rivers will undoubtedly be full of Serious Fun and a day you won’t soon forget.
Not so sure? Here are 5 reasons why your day on the river will be the best day of your summer:
1. World Class Whitewater
If you are thinking of going whitewater rafting, there are few places in the world better than Maine. Maine’s rivers provide thrilling experiences for everyone – from rookies to experienced paddlers. Whether it’s the big Class IV hits on the Kennebec River or the technical Class V rapids on the Penobscot River, you’ll definitely have an exciting and memorable experience. Our Registered Maine Guides will know these rivers better anyone and will show you the best time possible on the river, tailoring the trip to what your crew wants to do.
Added bonus: Maine’s rivers are dam controlled, ensuring that we have consistent whitewater rapids every day! Most other rivers in the world rely on snowmelt and rainfall which are not entirely reliable, so Maine’s rivers are a special situation.
GUARANTEED WHITEWATER = GUARANTEED SERIOUS FUN!
2. No Lines and No Crowds
Sure, you could head to the amusement park for the day andexperience some excitement, but do you really want to spend hours baking in the sun waiting for a minute-long ride? Not mention the swarms of other people crammed in around you.
In these times Social Distancing is all the rage, and rafting offers a day of thrills and adventure without the worry of being subjected to crowds of people. Social Distancing isn’t new to us – we’ve been practicing it on the river for years!
3. Unplug & Reconnect
You won’t be able to use your phone on the river. You couldn’t even if you tried – there isn’t reception in the remote areas that we go on our rafting trips.
Our whitewater rafting trips give you the chance to unplug from the stresses of day-to-day life, even if it’s just for a few hours (or for a few days on one of our Overnight Trips). You won’t be thinking about that email you need to reply to or that phone call you need to make as you’re crushing waves, surfing holes, or just soaking in Maine’s endless beauty! Without those distractions, you’ll have time to connect with your family and friends on an adventure and experience you will all remember.
4. Amazing Views
Don’t forget, that while you are having the time of your life you are smack dab in the middle of one of the most beautiful places on earth. You will get a front row seat to the majesty that is, Northern Maine. Whether it’s the mighty Kennebec River Gorge, a Moose, A Bald Eagle, or Mount Kathadin you are in for the wilderness experience of a lifetime.
Keep your eyes open on the bus ride to the put in! The access roads we take are common travel paths of Moose.
5. The Coolest Way to Cool Off
Water parks have got nothing on this. There is no better way to escape the heat than to get yourself on the river! Not only will you be getting splashed as you crash through rapids there are also opportunities to swim in the flat water sections. Again, no lines here.
