We were traveling from CT to FL and this was our in-between stop. Riding the rapids was beyond fun, and our guide kept us laughing and entertained during the few calmer parts. Next time we're in Richmond won't be for a pit stop on our...More
We had a group of eight friends book the lower James rafting trip. We had such a great time! All of the guides were really friendly, knowledgeable, and made the trip such a great experience. The photos that they took of us are amazing and...More

The first time, long overdue, I've taken my kids rafting, and this was perfect for it. The James is so beautiful, and going through Richmond from the River gave us views we'd never seen before. The guides were outstanding and informative, and though the water...More
