Canada Falls, the South Branch of the Penobscot River, is truly unique Maine rafting. It’s an intense Class III-V white water section with tight technical rapids and waterfall drops. It only runs on Saturdays in July and August so space is limited, experience is a plus, book early.
This is a great rafting trip to combine with an Ultimate Penobscot River Trip for most exciting whitewater thrills in Maine. This amazing Penobscot white water rafting trip is only offered on weekends on selected Saturdays. Penobscot Adventures is one of 3 companies in Maine that rafts this section, PURE AWESOME!
Really enjoyed the trip! My group really liked the size of the company so we didn’t have to wait for all the rafts like we have previously with other companies, it was nice and made the trip seem a lot more fun and a lot less waiting. As always the food was great and the Veggie burgers were absolutely delicious! The accomadations (camping) were great also! Really had a family feel! Overall Great Trip!
Wow! What a day! Our guide was Seabass. He was a rockstar! Professional, educated and articulate. Strong and fit and an expert guide. Seabass guided us through the gorge and the crib effortlessly. The rest of the trip was just as perfect, from reservations with Maureen to the riverside lunch. Delicious! Thanks so much for a great trip!
I had a great experience with Penobscot Adventures, all of the staff was awesome and seemed to really like what they do and who they worked for. Lunch was excellent, they really made sure they fed you before moving on. If you go hungry, it’s your own fault! I can’t wait to come back and do the whole thing! Thanks so much for a memorable experience, and I can’t rave enough about you guys! Thanks again!
Our recent trip rafting with Will was amazing. He was a great guide! We had so much fun we want to come back and bring our daughter next time. The lunch was wonderful. The whole trip was a wonderful experience. The class 5 rapids were very exciting. Thanks for a great trip!
The whole group loved it!!!! Thanks to all of you guys for making our whitewater rafting experience a blast! Special thanks to Seabass and Jesse. We will definitely recommend your place to our friends. All the best from all of us from Riverview.
We had a great time! We are so glad we went with you guys. Not only was Dan awesome but he was like a wildlife tour guide and we enjoyed his commentary. We have already talked you guys up and will recommend you to all our friends! Thanks so much for a great experience!
My Wife, Alcinda, & I joined another couple for a true Maine adventure! Although our ages ranged from 54 to 60 years old we never felt put out. Our guide was very professional and made the trip feel safe yet was very clear about the risks involved. Awesome, wicked good time! Thank you!

Canada Falls Rafting Trip Pricing 2016
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.Book Now
