Who They Are

Known globally as “The Home of Serious Fun,” the Three Rivers Family has earned its reputation by going above and beyond for every guest. Founder Joe Christopher envisioned a rafting company that would offer not only the best rafting trips in Maine but also an experience that guests would treasure forever. Over the years, this vision has become a reality, making Three Rivers a name synonymous with world-class whitewater rafting.

Equipped with a professional and exceedingly friendly guide staff, Three Rivers tailors each trip according to the guests’ preferences. Whether you’re looking to battle ferocious rapids on the Kennebec River or seeking a more tranquil voyage along quieter stretches, your request will be accommodated.

Why They Love Rafting

The company is built on the belief that spending quality time with friends and family outdoors is more important than ever.

The company offers various on-site lodging options to suit different preferences and budgets, ranging from cozy log cabins to more rustic bunkhouses and campsites—all within walking distance of the base camp.


To ensure that the fun doesn’t stop once you’re off the river, Three Rivers also hosts the Boatman’s Bar & Grill, a full-service bar and restaurant where guests can unwind and relish good food and drinks.


Three Rivers runs 1 and 2-day trips daily and offers packages that are ideal for families, corporate retreats, youth groups, and even bachelor/bachelorette parties.
