The 2009 Maine Whitewater Rafting Season is underway

We kicked off the 2009 Maine Whitewater rafting season today with a trip down the Dead River with 56 adventurous souls.

After weeks of preparation it’s always nice to get the first trip of the year on-the-water.

Now we can look forward to three more Dead River trips in May, whitewater guide training which starts on May 14th and our first ever Raft-n-Draft event on May 30th sponsored by our very own Kennebec River Brewery. There will be beer tasting, live music, a pig roast, brewery tours, did I mention the beer tasting? rafting on the Dead River and for those with any energy left on Sunday there’s a 4-mile mud run/walk/crawl to celebrate spring in Maine.

In addition to rafting we’re also gearing up for spring fishing, our new hut-to-hut hiking program and the arrival of Maine’s ATV season at the end of the month.

So, don’t sit around lamenting the woes of the world, grab a paddle, your hiking boots, a fishing rod or your ATV keys and get up here to The Forks to shake off the winter cobwebs and start to enjoy the benefits of Maine’s great outdoors.
