During a person’s visit to Maine there are plenty of rivers to go kayaking on, from the larger rivers to some of the smaller streams. However, due to the number of rivers some people may have indecision while trying to plan a route for kayaking. This is a list of rivers that can be enjoyed by people who kayak, no matter what they like.

Moose River

This river runs 83 miles, starting up near the U.S.-Canada border in Beattie. The river is fairly calm, however it has a few whitewater rapids in some places. The river ends by emptying into the Moosehead Lake, which is perfect if you want to kayak down the Kennebec River.
