great white water rafting trip

A great organization, with top notch professionalism & great communication.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for your kind words! We are very grateful for our partnership with MRO and love working with you. Let’s keep the Adventures going!!

This was an amazing trip. There is no better way to celebrate a graduating classes time to gather than time at Adventure Bound. They bounded in ways that didn’t happen after 12 years together. The Adventure Bound team was also phenomenal. They answered every question and were always available. We hope to make this an annual event.
Response from the owner: It was great to have you all to celebrate your graduating class! We hope to see you next year. Thank you!

Adventure Bound is the only Maine rafting company to focus on youth groups and to organize every part of the experience to be well suited to that population. I have been taking my school’s outing club to Adventure Bound to raft the Dead and Kennebec Rivers for over 15 years. They have been awesome to us every time and we have never had a student regret joining us for this trip. Even in years that we have presented the group with other (non-rafting) options for our year end trip, we have gotten a resounding response from our returners that they want to go back to Adventure Bound. John, Emily, and all of their guides are awesome people. I can’t recommend them more highly.
Response from the owner: Thank you James! We love hosting your group each year. See you next year!

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left the staff at Adventure Bound exceeded our expectations. I was a part of a school group (29 people total) and every facilitator, guide, cook and front office worker were kind, friendly, patient, caring and truly wanted to make sure all of us had the best experience possible. I cannot thank them enough for the great trip.
Response from the owner: Thank you Kaity! We’re so glad you enjoyed your time at Adventure Bound. Can’t wait for next year!

This is a wonderful place to stay. The staff is pretty much perfect and so much caring. Easy and fun raft to do with a lot of water!

One of my favorite places on earth. Best camping, hiking, and rafting one can ask for. Having spent 10 years at a sleepaway camp this place brings me back to those magical years.

If I could give them more stars, I would. This entire rafting experience was FANTASTIC. Our guide, John, was absolutely amazing and made our family’s first time rafting an experience we will never forget. Our boys haven’t been able to stop talking about it since we started our return to Acadia.We looked at several rafting companies before deciding on this one, and we are so happy that we decided to go with this group. They are absolutely top-notch, and I HIGHLY recommend them for your Kennebec rafting event! They truly think about every small detail and leave the fun to you. AB Crew, thank you for making this a vacation we will never forget!

I just got back from a college orientation trip at Adventure Bound. All the staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating with my food allergies. We did the ropes course, camping, and rafting. It was a great experience and helped us all create memories we’ll never forget! And Milo the dog is very friendly and happy to be petted!

We loved this experience! It was a rainy day and we debated even going on the trip but we are SO glad we did. We are a family of four who had never rafted before. My daughter and I were nervous. John was THE BEST guide and took great care of us. The entire team was so friendly and attentive. We felt safe and had a blast!! Thank you so much!!!

Best rafting there is. Bring your group. Bring your family. It’s awesome! Kennebec Rafting woth Adventure Bound is the best there is.

Great staff, superb adventure, safe, and most of all, fun. Highly recommend this for families, work/church/school groups, scouts, etc. We’ve done this annually for years and will continue.

Best in the business for youth and family adventures

Amazing place for family and youth group camping and activity. The staff was professional, helpful, and friendly. The facility was warm, clean and welcoming. Highly recommend for scouts, families, or any other groups looking for a place to have outdoor fun.

We have gone through Adventure Bound several times for our white water rafting, they never disappoint! And always look forward to the river rice. As a heads up, you’ll want to wear water shoes, strapped sandals, or sneakers. No Crocs or flip flops or you’ll have to wear their not-so-stylish booties!

The staff is super nice and helpful. The guides are really nice, helpful, qnd overall cool people! I highly recommend Adventure Bound!

Attended wedding here. Beautiful location, friendly staff. No cell service.

It was awesome…. there was rafting and rock wall and ropes course…it was awesome

Loved this organization. The river was so much fun. Six miles of constant white water, grilled lunch next to the river and then got to kayak, swim, and/or float on the raft the rest. They have wet suits if needed. The price included everything. I forgot water shoes and they gave me some for the trip.The guides were great. They let our small group of 4 have our own boat and guide.I will DEFINITELY use this business again.

We had a fabulous day on the Kennebec with Adventure Bound and our guide Beckham. The delivered perfect combination of flawlessly delivered logistics with a relaxed, smiling staff. The Kennebec gorge has exciting Class 3-4 rapids without the dangerous holes and places to avoid common to many stretches of whitewater, so it’s possible to play in and out of the water on the way down. We tried everything! Adventure Bound works a lot with summer camps, schools and other groups, but we called and reserved a raft family and visiting relatives and enjoyed a perfect day on the water. We’ll be back!

Best rafting trip I have done. Morgan was our guide and absolutely nailed it. They were very accommodating. We took our youth group and everyone loved it. We will use them again.

Awesome white water raftingWe went on the 2nd of June 2018 with my classmates; it was the biggest group; we as an 8th grade plus all parents, we had 87 people!Go to YouTube and look up adventure bound rafting June 2nd, 2018 (most of the rafts are our group(s)).

We went rafting on the Kennebec with Adventure bound the second week of August this year. We are a family of four with 2 teenagers.They did an excellent job of managing to make a great, safe experience despite the pandemic. Our family had a raft and guide to ourselves.John was amazing.Very safe yet exhilarating experience!!!They specialize in groups but will take families as well.Very Highly recommended.

We had lots of fun. Great place for Family’s. The rafting trip was perfect.

Water was cold
Response from the owner: “Refreshing” is what some call it! 🙂 It’s sitting in the mid 70s right now, so it’s perfect for these 80+ degree days!

Amazing rafting experience going over the big waves and getting wet. Even the bus ride to the rafting area was fun because there was such a nice view. I felt so much closer to nature.
Response from the owner: Awesome – that’s what we love to hear! Glad you got to fill your body up with some good ol’ nature!

Boy Scout Troop 401 thanks everyone at Adventure Bound for showing us the best time!!!
Response from the owner: Thanks to Troop 401 for joining us! You guys rock!

Came here on my 8th grade class trip, it was awesome. My favorite wave on the white water was Big Mama. The only thing that brings it down to 4 stars is that rainbow pig in the claw machine. Its impossible to get.
Response from the owner: Haha! Darn pig… glad everything else was awesome! 🙂

Just went rafting this past weekend with our entire family. Can’t say enough about the wonderful experience we had. Cabins were great, staff was amazing and the rafting was phenomenal. Perfect place for our family reunion. Enjoyed every minute.

They are very nice, and it is very fun
