Ride the big waves down the James!

Go on Riverside Outfitters’ signature whitewater rafting excursion in the best urban park in the region, Richmond’s very own James River. The James River Park System is the only Class II – Class IV whitewater rapids running through a major US city, much like an epic outdoor adventure right in your own backyard!

Have a fun-filled day crashing through the waves in the midst of a lush river ecosystem where magnificent Bald Eagles, Great Blue Herons, Egrets, Ospreys, and other wildlife abound. Enjoy a gourmet lunch picnic in one of the many refreshing river islands. Behold the picturesque skyline of downtown Richmond and other scenic views while drifting in a relaxing tide. Finish off with a cold glass of your favorite drink and some front porch-sittin’ in the turn-of the-century farmhouse-looking RO shop.

Trip duration at approximately 3-5 hours. Rafters must be at least 12 years old, at least 90 lbs, and know how to swim.

“Had the most fun today.  As a first time rafter, I must say I was a little nervous knowing the river was high.  I am an older, out of shape mom, and I didn’t know how capable I would be in the boat.  The guys at Riverside are great.  We received wonderful instructions and safety tips.  Ben, our captain, was fabulous.  He was super knowledgeable and made all us first timers feel comfortable.  Don’t wait, call them and book your trip today….you will be glad you did!”
