Whitewater Ducky Trips(must be at least 12 yrs old and weigh 50 lbs)

Don’t let the name fool you! A ducky is no child's toy; it's a one-person inflatable kayak that puts you up close and personal to the whitewater. Experience the rapids of the James River in an exciting and unique way. Our experienced guides will show you the way through our class I-II rapids, but you are the pilot of your own craft.

This is a great first step to seeing if you’d like to pursue whitewater kayaking on your own. Have a bit more experience? Call us up and we can talk to you about hitting some bigger water! 

Whitewater ducky adventures are also a great alternative to rafting when the river water level is a little lower, but you're still looking for an adventure. 

Like all River City Adventures, this trip will be approximately 3 hours, depending on water levels. Each trip begins with taking care of a bit of paperwork, getting fitted for gear, learning important safety information, and transportation to the river. 

Signed waivers are required for each person in your group - originals only, no copies! Save time the day of your trip by bringing in waivers that are already signed. Click here for the adult waiver; waivers for minors can be found by clicking here.
