Whitewater Paddleboarding

Join the latest river boating craze with RO’s expert guides on a thrilling instructional trip from Pony Pasture to Reedy Creek (Class I-II whitewater). In this relatively easy whitewater section of the river, you will experience a fun, challenging paddleboarding workout among some of the prettiest urban wilderness in the U.S. Expert guides will provide plenty of paddleboarding instruction so that you not only have a great trip but learn skills that you can apply to future paddleboard outings as well. You likely won’t be standing the entire trip, so, if you are uncomfortable kneeling, or unable to, please let us know ASAP. Get ready to wear your perma-grin and feel a great sense of accomplishment!

**Customers and staff are required to wear masks at all times indoors and whenever they are within 6′ of another person outdoors that they are not cohabitating with regardless of vaccination status until further notice. That includes while on our property, in the shuttle vehicle, and while walking through the park to/from the river. The exception to this rule is that customers and staff will not wear masks while on the river. Your guide will safely store your party’s masks once you access the river… they will then return the masks to you at the takeout to be worn on the shuttle ride back to the shop and on property**

*We continue to monitor staff health including mandatory touch-less temperature checks for all staff members each morning
*We continue to utilize an outdoor check-in desk and customer seating areas so as to limit the amount of time spent indoors to the use of the restroom
*We continue to disinfect gear and equipment (vans, etc.) between uses
*Hand sanitizing and washing stations abound

* If you don’t see dates/times available, please feel free to call the shop at 804-560-0068 during business hours

* In the event we cannot secure a guide for your trip (higher potential for bookings made within 48 hours of the trip), we will contact you asap to give you the option of rescheduling or receiving a refund
