MAINE WHITEWATER GUIDES

Whitewater rafting guides go through extensive training (see Whitewater Guide School and What It Takes to Become a Registered Maine Whitewater Guide) and testing before taking guests down the river. Many of our guides have been leading rafting trips for over 20 years. Some of our guides also lead ATV tours, snowmobiling tours, whitetail deer hunts, fishing trips, and hiking excursions. It’s clear from your trip reviews that our guides make whitewater rafting safe, fun, and a truly memorable experience. Endless thanks to this crew of extraordinary Maine Guides!
