About Dead River Expeditions
We used to do rafting! Now we leave the rafting to the other guys so we can focus on our newest location in Skowhegan, Maine. We also offer kayak, paddle board, tube and mountain bike rentals and a cool gift & gear shop. Owner and Master Maine Guide Mike St. Laurent also offers guided fishing trips throughout Somerset County. Visit our website for more details.

Mike, Josh, Kevin, Alex and Ben are all skilled guides providing not only a safe and fun (excessive laughs guaranteed) trip down the river, but they conclude your trip with a homestyle meal, and excellent photography you can purchase to remember your trip forever! Mike will go above and beyond to help you find accommodations if necessary, even giving me his cell if I needed to reach him! They may be one of the smaller outfitters in the Forks, but that won’t stay true for long with the outstanding experiences they provide. I rafted with them with a large group in early June (which was a blast) and again with my family, September 1st and I will continue to raft with them when I return!

Came to The Forks for 8400 CFM realease on the Kennebec River. Kevin was an amazing guide. Excellent customer service from the whole team at DRE from start to finish. Two thumbs way up.

This was one of the highlights of our family vacation. We drove 3 hours from Bar Harbor to be able to share this adventure together and would do it again. Everyone at Three Rivers was wonderful and easy to deal with. Both Scottie and Shawn were great guides. I highly recommend Three Rivers Rafting to everyone.

Hello. Thanks for the great review. However, you left this review on the Dead River Expeditions page! It appears you actually went on a trip with Three Rivers (a different but equally great company). You should go over to the Three Rivers page so you can let them know how much you enjoyed your trip with them!

I booked a trip for white water rafting for my birthday with Josh at DRE. I had 12 of us and he and Andy were the best guides we could of ever asked for. We had a blast and what an experience! A complete rush! I can’t wait for our next trip. Thank you DRE for a wonderful time!

Booked my first rafting trip with 5 of my friends through Groupon! It was an amazing value for what we received. I was so nervous to check this off my bucket list, but so glad I did! Our guide, Josh, was laid back and fun. He let us be ourselves and rolled with the punches. He let us get out and swim in the white water, which was terrifying and terrific all at once! When we finished for the day, we received a full lunch to my surprise! I didn't know we got that with the groupon booking. I was expecting like burgers and dogs, but they did pork, chicken, baked beans and "river" rice, which was so tasty! These guys killed it. Our experience was wonderful and we will def be back to do the Dead river next time. I'm so glad we booked with the "mom and pop" operation and not one of the huge corporate ones. Thanks for making my first time so memorable!
