The smaller the boat, the bigger the rush! Want to get the most thrill out of your raft trip? Hop on a 4-person mini raft to get even more up close and personal with Richmond's famous whitewater! Your guide and up to 4 guests per raft (size dependent) will join in with our standard Lower River trip to conquer the Lower section of the mighty James River through downtown RVA. It’s a super-fun experience where we get the most out of what mother nature gives us in the Class III-IV rapids. We will start just above the city to make our way through the longest stretch of rapids Richmond has to offer. Enjoy one of the most unique rafting experiences in the country as we pass under the city skyline and finish up in the heart of downtown. Then it’s back to Riverside Outfitters to relax, enjoy a beverage and chat about your awesome experience.
* Each member of your party must be at least 10 years old, at least 4'6" tall, and at least 90 lbs. In the event we question whether a customer meets these requirements, we may need to ensure their ability to sit properly in a raft and fit into our PFD (life jacket). If they do not, they may not be able to take this trip

“Fantastic experience. This was my first time rafting and I am officially hooked. These rapids are a white water gem in the heart of Richmond and this company provides a premier experience for rafting those rapids.”
“The best Richmond experience I’ve ever had and I’ve lived in Richmond for 4 years. Our guides, Scott and Eric, were knowledgeable, safe and fun. Would highly recommend the lower river ride…”
