BEST RAFTING COMPANY Where to start? Their guides are clearly better. In fact, they had to bail out a rival company twice. We went through rapids unscathed and pulled off into the eddy. Then we saw one red raft floating downstream UPSIDE DOWN with no one in it! Then another one! And then a red raft floating downstream with two very concerned customers on board with NO GUIDE! This other company didn't know what they were doing, and it showed. Our guide, Jesse, jumped into the water and saved the other company's boat. Derek, one of the other guides with Maine Rafting Expeditions literally saved 10 people from the other company. Not exaggerating. I sat there and counted. Rafting is AWESOME if you are with well trained and experienced guides. But if you are with someone who doesn't know what they are doing, it can be dangerous. Every single guide with Maine Rafting Expeditions had at least 10 YEARS of experience. At one part of the river there were rocks on either side of us. It was a tight fit. Had Jesse taken us too far right or too far left we would have hit one of the two rocks dead on. Jesse brought us in backwards and then spun us around just in time so that we fit through the rocks perfectly with literally one foot of clearance on either side. We had a tremendous amount of fun, but at the same time I could feel that our guide had everything under control. He knew every inch of the Penobscot River. He had a plan for every turn, every rapid, and every waterfall. He was personable. Fun to talk to. And genuine. This was a TRUE Maine Experience. You felt the culture. The sense of community. And the commitment that we were all in this together. Truly one of the best experiences I have had. The price is very reasonable. And it was worth every penny. The BEST RAFTING COMPANY on the Penobscot. If you are thinking of white water rafting, you should give these guys a chance. They do it right, and you feel the difference.

We just had an awesome first time white water rafting! Chris, our guide, was personable, knowledgeable and in the words of my 9 year old son, “amazing!” We had 4 children 8,9,13,&14. The family adventure was perfect for our first time. We were in class 2,3,&4 rapids and my 8 year old was asking to ride the class 4 rapids again. Lunch was prepared and provided by the staff and was yummy. The natural water slide was fun for all of us and the kids enjoyed swimming in the river when the water was calm. An unforgettable experience that we will never forget and Matt took great photos we will treasure. The kids are already looking forward to riding the class 5s when they are of age. If you are coming to the area of Millinocket and looking to raft, this is the place to go!

My wife and I rafted with Maine Rafting Expeditions. We've rafted many times and this was right up there. As a small outfitter, they allow you to do things others don't and it made all the difference. Thanks to our guide Chris and safety kayaker, Corey. I think we hit every hidden gem on the Penobscot River. Great pictures, Matt!
