Whitewater River Rafting
Maine has three rivers renowned for their breath-taking whitewater and scenery. Two of these, the Kennebec and the Dead, converge at The Forks, a wilderness village five hours north of Boston, that serves as headquarters for most of Maine's rafting companies. The Penobscot, largest of the three rivers, flows almost in the shadow of Mt. Katahdin, the state's highest mountain. Unlike most other eastern rivers, whose water volume reaches high levels only during the spring run-off, the Penobscot, the Kennebec and the Dead are dam-controlled and provide high-water rafting from late April through mid-October.
