Thank you for rafting with us and following with a review. Glad it was a "great experience" for your group. Good point - the water on the Kennebec River in Maine is quite warm in the summer months, often over 70 degrees! See you next summer!

We went on the river today and had the best time! My youngest is 10 and he was a little nervous but our guide helped talk him through it! B, our guide, was so nice and really made it so much fun! This is my third trip with them over the last 12 years.. everyone is always so friendly, they make you laugh and you always feel safe . It is so much fun! It's an amazing company.. for a family trip, I highly recommend them!

In the beginning it was little thrilled. I always feel like I am going to fall! Guess that the advantage of setting at first row. Extra excitement. Everyone in our team enjoys the wave and river Blazka is the best Captain ever!

Good for you trying rafting with our family business. And right in the front row! for all the extra splashes and waves. Best seat in the raft, for sure. Glad everyone in your crew had a great time on the river. We hope to see you back in 2022!

This was the best experience for 1st time rafters. III-IV on the Kennebec River was awesome. We couldn't have asked for a better guide (kudos to Ryan!) The sites were amazing. We climbed out to see a waterfall and they took pics. The pics and video were amazing. We were able to jump out and swim the river. The whole family enjoyed all ages! I can't say enough about everything. The lunch was awesome and had fun viewing all the pics/videos and the staff was friendly. We can't wait to book our next trip!

We agree - our favorite part of every day is riding the massive rapids with fun folks like yourselves! So much fun to share our beautiful rivers with new friends every single day! We'll let Emily know that you had the perfect day and give a shout out to the kitchen crew that serve up a delicious meal after rafting every day. See you in 2022!
