This was a great way to see another angle of Richmond. Lots of nature combined with a city skyline. The guide was very friendly and capable. The rapids were fun but not too intimidating. Highly recommend the trip.

Had a spontaneous thought to go Whitewater rafting and did a bit of research. Most local guides have a minimum age where here it was a weight minimum. Took my 8, and 11 yo rafting on the lower James. Kevin our guide was knowledgeable and...More
