Concord River Rafting

Trip Info

Come join us for early spring whitewater rafting on the Concord River, just 30 minutes north of Boston, Massachusetts. This urban whitewater gem plunges over three major class III-IV rapids - Twisted Sister, Three Beauties, and The Middlesex Dam. When the water level is right, Three Beauties becomes an intensely fun surfing hole. Surfing involves paddling upstream into a wave or hole with the goal to fill the boat with water, splash the entire crew, or maybe even have the boat stand on end.  We run this section twice on each Concord River rafting trip and welcome adventurous rafters 14 and older.

Your Concord River rafting trip concludes with passage through an 1850's lock chamber that brings you right into the center of Lowell, Massachusetts. A portion of the proceeds from this trip benefit the Lowell Parks and Conservation Trust, working to preserve greenspace in the city of Lowell.

The Concord River rafting trip is a spring trip only. For 2016, we will be offering this trip on weekends from April 2nd through May 22nd. Additional trips are available for groups of 12 or more on Friday afternoons and Monday mornings. Please call the office for more details.

The Concord is the closest whitewater rafting river to Boston. If you plan on taking the commuter train into Lowell, we recommend making a Saturday 1pm reservation because of the limitations of the bus schedule. Otherwise, please plan on taking a taxi from the Lowell commuter rail station (LRTA/Gallagher terminal).

We meet at the UMass Lowell Inn & Conference Center, located at 50 Warren Street in Lowell, MA about half an hour north of Boston. There is parking available at the Lower Locks Garage next to the hotel.

"I had a great time rafting the Concord with Zoar. Let's see if I can round up some folks from another industrial river city up here in Maine to do it again. You folks are closer than the Penobscot!" - J Labonte
