Ski Rack in Bangor. Hands down the way to go. Every other place in Maine has only lasted a couple of years. Many come and go, but there is a long history of whitewater associated with that shop up in Bangor. It's right off the highway, by the mall, on your way up 95 to get to the Penobscot. Easy to drive over to the Kennebec too. Long drives, but no traffic, so it goes by nicely.

Any advice? Any other must hit spots during the Week of Sept 27 - Oct 4?

The rest of the list is correct in stating that Bangor is the closest place to rent with any sort of options (if any). We were in The Forks last summer (2007) and stayed at a place in town that ran shuttle for boaters and also ran raft trips. If I recall, they rented Inflatables but no hard-sides. There seemed to be more rafting than kayaking, at least on the Kennebec.. Your other option is to head up to Quebec City where there is a shop or two.

Good luck.
