we took a group of about 25 down the James River, water was alittle that day but a great time was had by all. Don't forget the sunblock because the Sun will not forget you, nice scenic views of the city.

Great company and great guides. All experienced kayakers. No kids just working summer jobs. I took my nephew with no experience and he did great. This is a very safe trip because of the experience of the guides. Can't say enough. River was challenging, maybe...More
