If you are not looking for the thrill of the rapids, but still want to experience the Falls of James, then the Upper James rafting trip is a great option.
- Per Person Include lunch
Explore the Whole James River
Raft the entire Falls of the James River from Huguenot Flatwater to 14th Street, enjoying beautiful scenery, the city skyline, and thrilling rapids!
We will spend about 3.5 hours on the water and have plenty of time for relaxing and soaking in the scenery.
We will meet you at Stone Brewing before shuttling up to our put-in point about eight miles upriver. You will get outfitted with helmets, PFDs, and paddles before receiving a safety briefing from the trip leader.
Starting at Huguenot, we will paddle the Class I/II Upper James including Pony Pasture, Choo Choo, and Mitchell’s Gut. After lunch, we will then tackle the class III rapids of Hollywood, Fish Ladders, and Pipeline. After the trip, we will bring you back to Stone where you can dry off and enjoy a hard-earned refreshment.
