An amazing family run business. 1st time in Maine. Chuck and entire staff made us feel welcomed. Our guide Mike did an awesome job of giving us a safe and fun trip down the river. I had never been and was very nervous. I'm sure I made him nervous when I told home I'd be hanging on to his leg!!!... More

Jim St. Laurent @ Crab Apple Maine Whitewater Rafting was a terrific guide. He kept our family safe and made me feel comfortable. He was very empathetic to my anxiety. He is an ASSET to Crab Apple. My family and I will make this an annual summer trip.

We didn't stay at their lodge but we booked the rafting and paintball with them. Great experience. The paintball was great but the rafting was amazing, the guide which I forgot the name was so knowledgeable and made me comfortable when I was scared. After that we headed back for a great lunch. What a day!

After looking at numerous reviews we chose Crab Apple Whitewater for our Kennebec River rafting trip. We were not disappointed. From the time we arrived until the time we left the entire staff was friendly. They gladly answered any question that we had and clearly were very knowledgeable. As for the whitewater trip we could not have asked for a... More

The Peabody Family and their staff are overall great people. They run a quality company that caters to the customer. From the moment my teenage son and I checked in to our room until we left after our second day of rafting, 41 hours later, these people went out of the way for us to make this a truly memorable...

What an amazing experience for my wife, myself and our 3 teenagers. We spent a week in New England and this was by far the best experience as voiced by the entire family. I bought the pictures at the end of the rafting and to see the expressions on everyone's face is priceless. We went in June and I could... More
