Enjoy mild whitewater and peaceful stretches of flat water on the beautiful and secluded Rapidan River. Whether you are a beginner or experienced kayaker, our guided river tours provide a unique and relaxing outdoor experience. We often see a variety of wildlife ranging from bald eagles, ducks, hawks, blue herons, and kingfishers, to deer, beavers, muskrats, turtles, and occasional sightings of black bears and otters. Our tours are guided by an experienced kayak instructor who provides basic stroke and safety instruction prior to each tour. We provide kayaks, paddles, and life vests. Duration of our tour is approximately 3 – 4 hours.
NOTE: Tours are available year round depending on weather conditions and river water levels. Spring and Fall seasons present some of the most beautiful scenery and most favorable water conditions.
Swimsuit or shorts and shirt in warm weather. If temperature is cool, add layers that can be shed as the day warms. Wear water shoes or old athletic shoes that you don’t mind getting wet. Bring a hat, sunglasses, water, and sunscreen.
Water Shoes or sneakers are required. No Flip-Flops please!
