On the day before or after a whitewater rafting trip or if you have young children, take a relaxing tubing trip down the lower Kennebec River here in The Forks from the Inn By The River located just two miles north of Three Rivers Whitewater. Floating down the river offers a relaxed and scenic adventure where you can sit back and bond with the river and its long history. Wildlife can be seen on the riverbanks including deer, eagles, moose, loons and geese. There are plenty of spots where you can sit on the rocks and enjoy a snack and beverage.
Tubing trips are relaxing and playful and are one of the top things to do in Maine.
The tubing trip itinerary is up to you! Somersault off a tube, go for a swim, stop and explore the riverside and most importantly, bring a waterproof camera to capture the moments.
The river trip is 6.5 miles long and takes about 2.5 to 3 hours to complete. You will put in at the Kennebec Riverside Cabins just across the road from the Inn By The River. From there you can relax, enjoy the scenery and play along the river. The lower Kennebec River has a Whitewater Class of I and II making this trip suitable for all ages!
Extra Tubes can be rented to carry ice coolers.
