Lower River Rafting Trip
- "This group of tour guides were amazing. It was high waters and actually a bit frightening out on the water but Brie and others made it a wonderful experience and we felt as safe as possible and had a blast."
- "This was a birthday present for my daughter who just turned 14. At first she wasn't so sure about it, but by the end she didn't want to stop!"

Experience the only Class II – Class IV white water rapids running through a major U.S. city. See why Outside Magazine named Richmond the Best River Town in the U.S. We will start right below the Boulevard bridge section of the James River Park and takeout at the bottom of historic Shockoe Slipafter running the best (and biggest) rapids of downtown Richmond! Your guide will stop at the halfway point to enjoy some snacks and water while taking in the views of whitewater in our urban setting. Then it’s back to the Riverside Outfitters shop for a beverage and some front porch sittin’. Exact trip duration will depend on water level and speed of current…we will be on the water for approx. 2-3 hours.
Rafters must be at least 10 years old (with parent or guardian) and confident swimming in moving water. Minimum age might vary by water level land other conditions.
