Friday & Saturday Evening Trip

Take advantage of this unique offering to enjoy RO's Lower River Raft trip amid a beautiful RVA evening. Awash in the gold, orange and pink of a gorgeous summer evening sky, we'll plunge through the lit-up cityscape of downtown. Your guides will teach you everything you need to know as we dive into the the only Class III-IV whitewater in an urban setting in the country! We'll stop at a beach at the end of our trip to enjoy the cool evening temperatures and soak in the last few rays of sunshine beneath the shadow of the downtown skyscrapers. Truly, a must-do to be able to say you've experienced Richmond!

**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**

*It is important to note that your party members may be in a raft with members of other parties
*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

* 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

* 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

“We had an amazing time. Our guide John is very knowledgeable on the history of the river, it was a great experience all around. Beautiful ride, relaxing and exciting at the same time. All the guides are very nice. I would do it again!”

“Just finished an adventure, great guides they really make you feel welcome and very instructive. It’s more of a feeling of family rather than another customer. Definitely recommend if your looking for a great time!”
