Whitewater Kayaking

Whitewater Kayaking (Class I-II)

This trip is ideal for folks wanting to combine the exhilaration of paddling through Class II whitewater with the serenity of some flat water paddling mixed in. We’ll guide you down four sets of Class II whitewater rapids…nothing too technical, just a lot of fun! There will be plenty of opportunities to swim and chill-out as well. We’ll also get to enjoy the beautiful scenery and wildlife of the river while learning a thing or two about the rich history of the area. Get ready for a whitewater adventure to remember!

Covid-19 policy:

-If you’ve come into contact with someone infected with Covid-19, or are feeling symptoms, please call us to reschedule your trip

-It is important to note that your party members may be in a raft with members of other parties
-We may change this policy at any point based on changes in disease transmission

“Amazing kayak trip down the James River. Louis gave us great instruction and my husband and I would recommend this to anyone!”

“It was an absolute blast, with very experienced staff and they made the experience really great! I was nervous at first because I had never been on any rapids like this with a kayak, but they made us feel confident.”
