Event Details

The last of 4 trips per rafting season! If you love #whitewater action, you will want to be on one of these special release trips… 8,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) water flows, nearly DOUBLE the Kennebec River’s normal whitewater rafting release volume. During a turbine test, Brookfield Power tests their generating turbines by releasing the maximum amount of water possible from Harris Station Dam.

This aggressive, high-adventure whitewater #rafting trip races through the beautiful Upper Kennebec Gorge with non-stop action and huge waves. The Kennebec broadens after lunch, into the fast-moving lower section surrounded by forests and wildlife. Enjoy incredible scenery, exciting rapids and plenty of opportunities to play and see wildlife such as eagles, moose, osprey and more! The river put-in is only a 30-minute bus ride from the check-in and the trip ends just a short ride from our Northern Outdoors Adventure Resort, where you’ll enjoy a classic grilled lunch and #craftbeer at the Kennebec River Brewery.
