Penobscot River Rafting Trips
The Penobscot River Rafting Trips – The Ultimate Class V Experience
The Penobscot River is a True Class V Whitewater Experience that will challenge the skills of even the most experienced whitewater enthusiast. This 13 mile long adventure is complete with demanding Class V rapids and rewarding with pristine flat water as you relax and float along side Mt.Katahdin!
The Penobscot River is also dam controlled and flows at 1,800-3,600 cfs (Cubic Feet per Sesond), 7 days a week throughout the season. The Penobscot rafting season is a little shorter due to a smaller water source and typically runs from Late May through Late September. The lower water levels provide for a dynamic set of rapids that will keep you on the edge of your seat all day long!
The Penobscot River is unique in that it has a variety of different style rapids that you will conquer throughout the day! There are rapids such as The Exterminator (V) that are all about power to get through and then there are other rapids, like The Cribworks (V), that are all about finesse and and strategic maneuvers. It is this combination of dynamic whitewater and breathtaking scenery that make The Penobscot River a truly beautiful place!
Just like all of our other river trips, Penobscot River Trips include: shuttles both to and from the river along with use of life jackets, paddles and helmets to stay safe on the water. We will stop halfway (on the 1day trip) for a full homemade BBQ Lunch which is complete with your choice of steak, chicken, fish, hamburger or vegetarian with all of the fixings. We will end our day with a slide & video presentation of your trip that day! The Penobscot River is a true Class V experience by anyone’s standards with enough adrenaline to get even the most experienced paddlers going!

Penobscot River 2 Day Trip
Take the same 13 mile trip that we typically do in one day and stretch it into two! You will start at the top of the river on Day 1 and slowly work your way down stream taking the time to stop and play in all of the popular play spots. You will eat your meals and camp at our private campsite that sits right on the water!
All that you have to bring is your sleeping bag and a change of clothes as our guides will handle the rest, even the dishes. After breakfast, Day 2 will start at the infamous Nesowadnehunk Falls (IV) and we’ll spend some time playing around in the various features that this location has to offer! After “The Falls” we will continue down stream to tackle the remaining class III and IV rapids on the river!
Minimum Party Size: 6 If you have less than 6 in your group we would be happy to schedule you with another group.
