The Kennebec river is beautiful and was very exciting. The meal at lunchtime was truly outstanding, Much more than we were expecting!!! … The rest of the trip was fun too, with time to explore a waterfall, and a nice calm drift at the end… This trip was worth every penny! And every mile we drove to get here! The video at the end was really great and fun to watch. We can’t wait to try a Dead River trip next time.

My sister and I went rafting on the Kennebec and had the best day of our lives. The river was amazing, especially the first part of the trip when we went through the class 4 rapids… We loved the last 2 hours of the trip as well.. where we could get out in the duckies.. small kayaks… and just float. What a wonderful day. Of course the gourmet lunch was to die for…
