Guided Flatwater Paddleboarding- Eco Tours
Whether you are new to Stand Up Paddleboarding or a seasoned Pro, our Flatwater Paddleboarding Trips offer a chance for anyone to experience Richmond VA in an exciting way! Two things Riverside’s guides are passionate about are spending quality time on the James River and sharing it with others. Allow us to teach you and your family & friends the basic techniques of Stand Up Paddleboarding, such as safety, hydrology, proper body mechanics and a variety of paddle strokes and stances…all on a flat, calm section of the James River.
Along with the chance to hone your SUP skills, our guides will be sharing many intriguing facts about the rich history of this River City on America’s founding river…the mighty James. You will also find that this section of river is teeming with wildlife year round– ranging from colorful flowers and foliage, a healthy fish and turtle population and birds of all sizes– including majestic Great Blue Herons and Snowy Egrets. We even have regular Bald Eagle sightings!!
So come out on the water and spend some time with your family, friends and Riverside Outfitters. To ensure you have the best and safest experience possible, all of our guides are certified ACA Paddleboard Instructors. Ages 10 and up, with participating adult, are welcome and basic swimming skills are required (water levels may alter min. age). Tours begin May 26th (river conditions permitting).
