Sunset Sturgeon Sighting Tours

Join our guides as we cruise along the tidal section of the James River at Ancarrow’s Landing in search of sturgeon breaching at peak season! We will be sharing many intriguing facts about the rich history of this River City on America’s founding river…the mighty James. Get ready to be connected with this river-based learning experience that will inspire ecological understanding, nature appreciation, and conservation action. You will also find that this section of river is teeming with wildlife year round– ranging from colorful flowers and foliage, a healthy fish and turtle population and birds of all sizes– including majestic Great Blue Herons and Snowy Egrets. We even have regular Bald Eagle sightings!!
 
Whether you are new to sit on top kayaking or you are a seasoned pro, our trips offer a chance for anyone to experience Richmond VA in an exciting way! Two things Riverside’s guides are passionate about are spending quality time on the James River and sharing it with others. Allow us to teach you and your family & friends the basic kayaking techniques such as safety, hydrology, proper body mechanics and a variety of paddle strokes…all on a flat, calm section of the James River.

All tours last approx. 2 hrs.
