Whitewater Rafting in the Maine North Woods
Canada Falls is a Maine rafting trip unlike any other in the state. We check the trip in at 7:45am and ride straight up to the river. At the put in we have the safety talk for the day and tell each guest what to expect from this challenging white water rafting river. We do two runs down the white water rafting section of Canada Falls with a break for lunch between the runs.
Each run takes about an hour and a half. The rapids start out with some Class III to warm up and after that they turn into IV’s and V’s. The last rapid “Canada Falls” is the longest most challenging Class V rapid run with commercial guests in the state of Maine.
After the second run we return to base and watch the slide and/or rafting video presentation of the day’s trip. The gift shop is open until 6:00pm for your chance to buy souvenirs. This trip is great for groups that have experience rafting. The whitewater on this trip is great fun, but when things happen they happen fast and furious. Knowing what to expect from a rafting trip is a plus on this river.
