This was a fun way to spent 1/2 day. I love to see the James river health enough to be able to go in the water. This is a wonderful resource for all Virginians to enjoy. It was too polluted when I was a kid...More

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.

Overall a great time. The office was easy to get to, you park your car, sign in, get your safety equipment and safety briefing then it's on the way to rafting! Everyone piles in a van and they take you down the river. Once we...More

I usually don't leave negative reviews of businesses, but the complete lack of professionalism shown by River City Rapids was astounding. We booked an afternoon rafting trip well in advance and the evening prior to our trip we got a call from Travis that the...More
