Labor Day Weekend Dead River White Water Rafting
Add some excitement to your Labor Day weekend. The Dead River is a limited dam release white water rafting experience with only 8 days of rafting each season.
Sunday Septemer 2nd is the sixth scheduled dam release date of 2018. The 9/2/2018 release is scheduled to be 5500 cubic feet per second which offers big whitewater thrills on class 3, 4, and 5 rapids.
The Dead River is New England's most continuous whitewater rafting experience. It's for adventurers seeking an adrenaline-fueled day of class 3, 4, and 5 whitewater rapids. The trip starts just below Grand Falls and goes through 15 miles of New England's best whitewater rapids. The rafting day ends at the confluence of the Dead and Kennebec Rivers in The Forks, ME. Check the Northern Outdoors Dead River release schedule for all of the available dates in 2018.
Raft trips meet at 7:30 am. We recommend booking one of our many Maine cabin rentals the night before your raft trip. We have options to suit all group sizes and budgets. And at the end of your raft trip you can relax and enjoy one of our Maine craft beers brewed on-site at the Kennebec River Brewery.
