Whitewater Rafting with Kids: Maine’s Kennebec River

One night family adventure rafting on the Kennebec river.

Are you seeking an exciting outdoor experience suitable for the whole family? Adventure Bound offers thrilling whitewater rafting trips on Maine’s Kennebec River, tailored for kids and adults alike.

Our specially designed rafting trips cater to families, ensuring a fun-filled journey through the Maine woods. Led by experienced guides, you’ll navigate the twists and turns of the class II-IV Kennebec River, enjoying the stunning scenery and exhilarating rapids along the way. Our trips are designed to cater to first-time rafters and offer excitement that will keep you coming back year after year.  Minimum age for the full river is 10 years old. 

For families with younger children, kids aged 8 and 9 can join the trip after the major rapids and before lunch. They’ll still get to experience the thrill of a Class III rapid and explore the lower river.

As you continue down the lower river, the fun continues with water fights, inflatable kayaking, or simply floating along the scenic waterway with your life jacket. With controlled dam releases ensuring whitewater thrills all summer long, Adventure Bound is here to make your family’s adventure dreams a reality, seven days a week from May to October!

After your rafting adventure, relax at our riverside basecamp, where you can enjoy a delicious barbecue lunch and take in the natural beauty surrounding you.
