Upper James River Rafting in Richmond

If you are looking for milder rapids and want to be surrounded by the natural scenery of the James River, then this trip is a great option.

We will meet you at our office at 1511 Brook Rd. before shuttling up to our put-in point at Pony Pasture.  You will get outfitted with helmets, PFDs, and paddles before receiving a safety briefing from the trip leader.

As you tackle Class I-II rapids, including Pony Pasture, Choo Choo, and Mitchell’s Gut, you’ll enjoy beautiful scenery and wildlife. For non-paddlers, we can provide a rower so you can relax and take in the calming views of the James River.

Halfway down, we will stop on a deserted island in the middle of the river to relax, have a snack, and go for a swim. After the trip, we will bring you back to our office at Brook Rd where you can change into dry clothes and check out your photos.
