If you have children between the ages of 5 and 10 and/or if you're looking for a more chill ride with smaller waves, plenty of awesome scenery and swimming, the Upper River trip is for you! After leaving from the shop, we will put-in by the Pony Pasture section of the James River Park System and cruise the Upper section (Class I-II whitewater) of the James through the heart of Richmond's urban forest. We'll play in rapids and cool off with dips in the river. Drinks are also provided. The trip will finish up at the Reedy Creek parking area. Then it’s back to Riverside Outfitter's for a beverage and some front porch sittin’ and story sharing with your guides.

“Our guide was Ryan and he did an amazing job! My boyfriend and I flew from Florida to Virginia for a week and the white water rafting was definitely on our list, I was a little nervous but once we got out there it was nothing! Super fun time and the water felt amazing. Would definitely recommend Riverside Outfitters for a first timer and even young children!”
“This was an excellent experience. The on-site personnel were absolutely great with the kids AND adults, which is so important with this type of adventure.”
