As you may already know, the weather in Virginia can be unpredictable but it also tends to be short-lived, so we don’t often cancel for rain. Our guides and management are trained to do their job in many different kinds of weather conditions. We will always make a decision in the best interest of the participants and our staff. So, unless we anticipate extended severe weather, plan to enjoy some quality time on the water!
