Take me to the river!
All trips begin at River City Adventures located at 711 Hospital Street, Suite 2A, Richmond, VA 23219. Reservations are required for all adventures, including tubing trips. Please call well in advance of the date you wish to go, though you may call for daily space availability. We ask you to arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled time of your trip. During the first hour of the adventure you will provide the completed waivers, make payment, be fitted for gear, listen to a trip talk, and be shuttled to the appropriate put-in. The James River is a drop/pool river, meaning rapid/flat water. Water levels and rapids will vary. The water levels determine where we launch trips so that we may do our best to keep on schedule and provide you with the best trip possible. The variety caused by the changes of water flows and diverse backgrounds of our guides makes each trip unique and will give you a different experience each time you raft with us.
Each raft has a guide to assist you down the river. The number of people per raft depends on river conditions and other factors, but generally ranges from 3 to a maximum of 6 guests plus the guide. If your group has more than 6 guests, you will be asked to split up between boats.
We have showers and changing rooms for your convenience. Our location is just minutes from a variety of restaurants, the historic Shockhoe Bottom area, and lodging.
We are just blocks from Interstates I-95 and I-64.
There are NO refunds on ANY cancellations or no-shows 7 days or less from the scheduled trip.
NOTE: Groups of 12 or larger are required to make a nonrefundable deposit equal to 50% toward the full trip price.
