CrabApple Whitewater, Kennebec River
May 14 - May 18
Our 13 foot, 6 person Go For It rafts are the shortest allowed by the state of Maine. These rafts give the Kennebec and Dead Rivers a whole new look – waves and holes like “Big Mama” and “Magic Falls” swallow these smaller boats making for some of the wildest rides of the season. This trip is geared toward veteran rafters and a minimum of 4 people is required to run a Go For It trip.
Trip dates: Daily on Kennebec River starting May 14 Book This Trip
After a short ride (shortest of all outfitters), the Kennebec River white water rafting adventure begins at Harris Station Dam and immediately enters a narrow gorge, hundreds of feet deep. Quickly picking up speed, rafts plunge through huge rolling waves and heart-pounding drops run expertly by our professional guides. Legendary Class III and IV rapids such as “Big Mama” and “Magic Falls” await you at every turn for over 7 miles.
The second part of the Kennebec River trip includes smaller rapids and opportunities to get out and float next to the raft. Water temperatures will top out in the mid-70’s in the summer making this fun for everyone. Our Kennebec rafting trip ends where it began, right back at our base—no cold, soggy shuttle ride back to Crab Apple! Walk out of your raft and into a hot shower in your room, hot tub or our swimming pool while your guides prepare a delicious cookout. After lunch we head to our comfortable conference room to view photos and video from your day on the Kennebec.
After whitewater rafting on the Kennebec River, many of our guests stay over for a second night and enjoy relaxing time in our pool, take a walk into Maine’s highest waterfall – Moxie Falls, or join the Nightfall Paintball game that begins every day after rafting.
