The full day of whitewater rafting begins at 8:30 a.m. when adventurers check in at the Wilderness Edge Campground. Transportation is then provided to and from the Penobscot River. Led by a registered Maine guide, rafters embark on 16 miles of Class V and IV whitewater rafting as they soak in views of Mount Katahdin, Baxter State Park, and various local wildlife, such as eagles and moose. The trip includes a break for a riverside barbecue with the rafter's choice of steak, chicken, or a veggie burger. Groups return to the campground between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.
This Groupon is only available from May 1–August 31. Rates fluctuate throughout the week and month. Call at least one week in advance to book.
Maine Rafting Expeditions
With an experienced guide at the helm, eager explorers pile into Maine Rafting Expedition’s brightly colored rafts, ready to crash over rumbling rapids throughout Maine’s rivers. Their excursions suit adventurers of all abilities, from more relaxed family- and kid-friendly jaunts through the Penobscot River’s Class III and IV rapids to white-knuckle-inducing trips through Canada Falls’ Class-V rapids and a 20-foot waterfall. The most popular trip runs down 16 miles of the Penobscot River, whose Class IV and V rapids offer a heart-pumping ride for paddlers and wild moose aged 14 and up. The seasoned guides also lead overnight expeditions, which break for slumber at fully equipped campsites along the river. On every trip, rafters can fuel up with the included riverside barbecues and commemorate their journeys with photos and videos available for purchase.
