"I brought the CEO of my company and several of his and my family members rafting on the Kennebec…

What an amazing time we had. The accommodations were wonderful. The pub food and drinks were perfect. One of the nicest, cleanest pools I have seen in the Northeast.

The staff was also wonderful. And I would like to give special thanks to the owners who made us feel like family.

I have been down the river once or twice and I can say our guide, Meagan, knows what she is doing! She can control a raft better than I can park my car. She made the entire party feel safe and comfortable and still showed them excitement all day."

"My sisters, husband and kids were at your facility on July 26th for our first whitewater experience.

We were all very impressed with the friendliness and “laid back” professionalism of your staff from the moment I made the reservation, until we left the base after the trip. I couldn’t believe how organized the whole day was and how everybody was so helpful when asking questions. You guys rock! "



“ Crab Apple is certainly the BEST RUN outfit in the northeast...

You have a top-notch, well-trained excellent friendly crew through your entire operation and your dedication to the Crab Apple tradition shows.”



"We had a wonderful time white water rafting and paintballing with you.

Its our 25th anniversary and we couldn't have had more fun, great food and accommodations ."

Kennebec River Rafting

The Kennebec River adventure begins at Harris Station Dam and immediately enters a narrow gorge, hundreds of feet deep. Our expert, professional guides work with their team to have the best run possible on each trip. Quickly picking up speed, rafts plunge through huge rolling waves and heart-pounding drops. Legendary Class III and IV rapids such as "Three Sisters" and "Magic Falls" await you at every turn for over 7 miles.

The second part of the river trip opens up for better views of the primitive wilderness and opportunities for "body surfing" in smaller rapids. Water temperatures will top out in the mid-70's in the summer making this fun for everyone. Our Kennebec trip ends where it began, right back at our base—no cold, soggy shuttle ride at Crab Apple! Walk out of your raft and into a hot shower, hot tub or our new swimming pool while your guides prepare a delicious cookout. After lunch we head to our comfortable conference room to view photos and video from your day on the Kennebec. Join us for world class whitewater on our "home river," the Mighty Kennebec!



Our trip on the Kennebec was awesome.


" Our guide was Rob and he hit every wave on the river just right. Our photos were fantastic and the video at 'Magic Falls' was spectacular. The meal afterwards was great and so was your entire staff. We'll be back for the Kennebec and Dead River next trip!"
