We had a great day rafting on the Penobscot River with NEOC. The guides were excellent and I felt very safe even though I do not swim well. The upper river trip features a trip through the spectacular Ripogenus Gorge through some really challenging rapids. The lower river trip is much tamer with some great rapids, but more extended periods... More

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
