This was our (family ages ranging from a 17 year old to grandad who is 81 years old) first time doing White Water Rafting, and we went hardcore - Double Trouble Class V. And we truly enjoyed the experience! We can't wait to get out there again! Also, they serve a Yummy BBQ lunch!!!! :)

Truthfully, I was a bit scared, especially learning that my fearless daughter signed us up to do the 'Double Trouble' Class V! But meeting our guide Andy who was calm as still water, helped me get over the anxiety…and WOW...what an amazing adventure! He guided us through every Huge, big, medium and small wave we hit…and honestly, my fear turned... More

We love whitewater rafting, and the NEOC on the Penobscot did not disappoint! Did the Double Trouble trip, it was thrilling!!! Glad we had the wetsuits. After doing the run twice we had a great grilled lunch provided by the raft guides, the steak was excellent!

We did the half day "double trouble" trip in early September, and although it was our first time rafting our super guide Andy did a wonderful job of getting us informed and comfortable. The trip consisted of two runs down the section of the river starting at the Dam and consisted of several class 5 rapids with some slower sections... More

We had a fantastic day of white water rafting. Elliott, our guide, and Andrea lead us on a very fun ride. We signed up for the full day soft adventure. Elliott made sure every step of the way that we were all comfortable with the upcoming set of rapids and gave us a few options of how we could approach... More

We did a 1/2 day trip on the Penobscot and there were so many people and rafts that most of the time we were waiting on the other rafts to go through the rapids. Not like our trips in Colorado, New Mexico and Idaho. Class 5 Rapids were okay but not what we were used to. Our guide could have... More

Our White water rafting trip, was one of the best all day trips we had ( with a break for lunch, and no cooking involved ). Highly recommended for the class 4 and 5 waters. If you like roller coasters, then this is a sport you have to do. now it's just up to you.

We really enjoyed our white water rafting trip. Our guide Andy "Diesel" was an awesome guide. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. He knew the area and explained everything very well. We saw other rafting companies where half the people fell out of the boats. We had one person fall out and Andy quickly returned them to the boat. Great... More
