Whitewater rafting on Maine's class V Penobscot River is an unmatched adventure. Winding through Baxter State Park in the shadows of Mt Katahdin is the northeast's most challenging whitewater rafting, with the river-wide hole of Extermintor, the technical class V Cribworks, and the whitewater playground that is Nesowadnehunk Falls. Join us on the trip of a lifetime.
