Having rafted both the Penobscot and Kennebec, the excitement of the Penobscot surpasses our experience on the Kennebec. With first-time Penobscot rafters with us, we were mildly concerned that we may be biting off more than they could chew. NOT! Our guide was great - extra points for inviting multiple...

Northern Outdoors is THE BEST! I look forward to my rafting every year (as I have for about the past 15 years). There is no other company that I'd go with other than Northern (we tried others early on), or place I'd stay other than the POC, rafting the Penobscot....

My friends and I rafted with Northern Outdoors earlier this season and couldn't resist but to come back for more. We had very high hopes that our trip would be just as good this time around. Our adventures on the Penobscot, however, far exceeded our expectations. Jayson, who navigated us...

Hi there, I just wanted to say what a great experience I had white water rafting with your crew on July 20, 2011. I had never been white water rafting and I really didn't know what to expect. That being said I had climbed Katahdin on the Monday prior and one...

I went with 5 other friends rafting on the Penobscot River with Jason as our guide. It was fantastic!!! We loved it. Both guides were very clear in explaining what we would be doing and telling us if we fell out what it would be like. Which personally was really...

My wife and I have rafted with many outfitters over the years, but I would have to say that Northern Outdoors has definitely surpassed them all. We started rafting with you folks a couple years ago and we now try and make it once or twice a year. We love...

I hate to be cold and wet and we were that weekend, but I still had as much fun as if it were warm! Our guide, Trevor was very experienced. All the guides were funny and relaxed, which we enjoyed. Camping at POC was scenic and stress relieving, even though we...

This is my second time rafting with Northern Outdoors, and I must say that the experience was once again exceptional! My girlfriend and I were very pleased with our guide, Dave Welch. He was an exceptionally knowledgeable ambassador and we found him to be very skilled at both guiding our...

Our guide (Todd) was very good, very amusing, felt the needs and interests of our group well and provided us with opportunities to do lots of extra surfing and playing in the water which made the activity much more enjoyable. The only suggestion for the actual rafting would be to suggest...

I just got back from the BEST TRIP ever thanks to you all at Northern Outdoors. My group of 12 friends came up to white water raft the Penobscot and we were ALL BLOWN AWAY with the trip. The management, organization, and staff were all BEYOND outstanding. You guys just...

This was my 4th time going on a rafting trip and from the second we got to Northern Outdoors to when we left in the evening, the experience was exceptional. On previous trips, the outfits often promise class 5 rapids and a lot of excitement but I had yet to...

The guides and staff were all awesome. They really made the trip more fun. I was there with only my sister but by the end of the trip I felt like part of a large group. The river trip was a blast. We made the best of a situation where...

A group of 9 of us went up to raft the Penobscot. Most of us were first timers but adventure seekers. Rod was our Guide and was fantastic. This trip blew all of our expectations through the roof. The staff was fantastic and the camping was great and quite. Very...

I have been coming to Northern Outdoors with a group of close friends for almost 9 years now. We rafted on The Kennebec the first couple of years, then rafted on the both the Kennebec and the Dead in the same weekend. Last year was our first year rafting on...

This was the 6th time that my wife and I have gone rafting with you guys, and each time is better than the last. We have done the Penobscot four times, the Kennebec once and this was our first Dead River run (and yes, we will be doing it again)....
