Kayak Rentals


We offer Sit-on-Top Kayak rentals. This is an unguided rental; you will provide your own transportation to and from River City Adventures. You can use these kayaks on the Upper James River or the tidal area. Participants must be 12 years old or older and a minimum of 90 lbs, and a maximum of 300 lbs., to go on this adventure.

Depending on bookings, we can occasionally offer shuttle service for rentals at a rate of $5.00 per person. However, availability for this service is based on whether a driver is present. Please check beforehand if you do not have your own transportation.

$30 per hour



Guided Kayak Trips


Guided kayak trips will be provided with an experienced guide that will take you through the Upper James or the tidal section of Richmond. The length of the trip can vary depending on the water levels on the day of the adventure. Typically, the trip will last 3 hours. The first hour will be spent at the shop completing waivers, being fitted for gear, listening to a trip talk, and shuttle time. Participants must be 12 years old or older and a minimum of 90 lbs, and a maximum of 300 lbs., to go on this adventure. In order for a trip to go out we must have a minimum of 4 people. Smaller groups can be paired with other groups if needed and if available.

Note: If the minimum requirement for participants is not met we will have to reschedule.
