Whitewater Rafting history at Northern Waters New England’s oldest Whitewater Rafting Co. And Kayak School


In 1972 Northern Waters was born, a white water Outpost of Saco Bound inc. a Saco River Canoe company in Conway, New Hampshire which also was the first commercial whitewater rafting company in New England running trips on the upper Saco River during Spring run off in 1972. 

Northern Waters in the early days concentrated on a White Water kayak school, one of the first kayak schools in the country and canoe trips on the Androscogin River and the Magalloway River in Maine. 

During this time Saco Bound/Northern Waters partnered in forming Downeast Rafting Co. running Whitewater Rafting Trips on the Kennebec River and the Penobscot  River in Maine. Later trips were expanded to running White water rafting trips on the Dead River in Maine. 

In the Early 1980′s Northern Waters staff made the 1st descent of the Rapid River in Maine in a commercial raft. Since Northern Waters, Saco Bound and Downeast Whitewater  were the same ownership, the 1st Commercial white water Rafting trips on the Rapid River in Maine was added. Staff from Northern Waters and Downeast Rafting ran these trips. 

In 1999 Downeast Rafting was sold and its owners formed Rapid River Rafting Co. which with Northern Waters ran trips on the Rapid River and Magalloway rivers in Maine. 

Since 2005 Northern Waters has been concentrating on white water Rafting trips on the Androscoggin River in New Hampshire
