Front desk staff is very unfriendly and dishonest. They claim to be family run, yet they don't know how to treat other families with respect and understanding. I would recommend whitewater rafting, but not with this outfit.

This was my second rafting adventure with Crab Apple, and I must admit it was sensational. Crab Apple is the only way to go rafting in the Northeast. They have the most experience staff, extremely safe, the best equipment, and they really care about you. Once you finish the rafting they reward you with a great BQ, and pictures of... More

Ended up the weather was gorgeous and the rapids were a level 4/5. It was my first time rafting so needless to say (after the safety talk) I was scared to death... More

This was our second time rafting with Crab Apple White Water. Once again they gave us memories to last a lifetime, with pictures to prove it. I had a last minute opportunity to get one last trip in this summer and was glad to find they had space. I took 8 16 yo boys and I was remembered from last... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our recent rafting adventure down the Kennebec with Luke as our guide. His experience & knowledge made the trip all that much fun! We were a group of eight & stayed on site @the cabins. Rooms, breakfast & staff were terrific. Highly recommend Crab Apple & are already looking forward to next year!

Went for a guys adventure weekend and had a blast. My first time to ME. The setting is very beautiful and the lodge was set up pretty cool. Family oriented yet spread out enough to have a let loose weekend as well. The staff were very friendly, our guide Sara was a lot of fun, experienced, and really helped us... More
