Dead River Rafting – The Weekends to be in The Forks

Maine Whitewater Rafting with Northern OutdoorsRafting enthusiasts take note: For those who have never rafted the Dead River in Maine, we highly recommend it.  The Dead River offers some of the best Maine whitewater rafting and it only runs a limited number of times a year!  With more continuous whitewater than any other river in the East, the Dead River puts you smack in the middle of super-intense, wet and wild action.

The Dead River is dam-controlled and has only 10 high-water releases per season.  We love to thrill guests on heart-pounding Class III, IV, and V whitewater from Grand Falls to the confluence of the Kennebec and Dead Rivers in the West Forks.

This rafting trips builds in intensity with great warm-up rapids at the top and culminates in the Class IV-V Poplar Hill Falls at the end. The scenery is outstanding, especially in September and October when the leaves are turning — if you have time to look!

Sunday, August 15th 3500 cfs  (Diablo Sport Rafts)
Sunday, September 5th 5500 cfs
