An experienced guide leads rafting trips down the west branch of the Penobscot River, where Class III–V rapids kick up a bubbly foam. Surrounded by rugged mountain scenery, small groups of rafters tackle the Nesowadnehunk Falls Class IV and the Cribworks Class V rapids.
Dan and Maureen McDonald battle the waves on a daily basis. As co-owners of Penobscot Adventures, they and their trained guides steer patrons through Class III–V rapids on the Penobscot and Seboomook Rivers and Canada Falls. During rafting expeditions, the team demonstrates techniques that riders use while paddling through the zigzagging forces of whitewater rapids. Their adventure outpost also supplies riverboarding trips that garb patrons in wetsuits and send them out on oversize boogie boards. Out of the water, adventure takes the shape of paintball games that pit players against one another as they dart through the trees and shoot vibrant pellets until someone draws up a treaty with minimal economic sanctions.
