Overview

 

The Dead River lies deep in the heart of Maine's timber country, miles from the nearest paved road. It is a diverse river offering three adventurous whitewater rafting trips.  People come back year after year to run the Dead River at highwater because it is an event. Created by flood control releases, the river is pushed beyond its banks and into the trees submerging the shoreline. The Dead is renowned for having the longest continuous stretch of Class III-IV whitewater rafting in New England. There are no slow moving sections of whitewater here. Even finding a resting spot is hard.. Downriver, side streams join the river making the rapids even move turbulent. This means the biggest whitewater and wildest rapids await you at the end. It is unpredictable and never the same. And since highwater dates are limited (see below), spaces fill quickly. So make your whitewater rafting reservations early!  All Dead River highwater releases come with a hearty BBQ lunch and picture and/or DVD show of your day's trip.

Itinerary

1-DAY DEAD RIVER RAFTING TRIP ITINERARY

1 Day Dead River Trip meets at 8 AM or 9 AM, in The Forks, Maine and ends around 4:30 p.m. In the morning, rafters meet the guides, sign a general release, and grab a lifejacket and paddle. In cooler weather, wetsuits can be rented that morning for $7-15; a bathing suit, shorts and sneakers are fine on warmer days. After listening to a safety talk, rafters are shuttled to the river put-in. During the rafting trip, we stop for a snack (if the water and weather permit). Ideally, we break at a waterfall or swimming hole. After rafting, we feast on a hearty chicken, steak or salmon BBQ lunch (vegetarians accommodated with advance notice). The day ends around 4:30 with a viewing of slides and/or video of you rafting the big rapids.
