Explore the Whole James River
Raft the entire Falls of the James River from Huguenot Flatwater to 14th St, enjoying beautiful scenery, the city skyline, and thrilling rapids!
We will spend about 4 hours on the water and have plenty of time for relaxing and soaking in the scenery.
We will meet you at Stone Brewing Richmond Parking 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 rapids, including Pony Pasture, Choo Choo, and Mitchell’s Gut. We will then stop to relax and eat lunch on one of the river’s many islands. After lunch, we will tackle the Class III-IV Lower James rapids of Hollywood, Fish Ladders, and Pipeline. After the trip, we will bring you back to Stone Brewing where you can dry off and enjoy a hard-earned refreshment.
