Offering guided and self guided canoe trips

About Us

We are a Nelson County based canoe outfitter and guide service to the James River and its tributaries. We rent tandem canoes so you may explore on your own or we can take you on a guided trip down a portion of the James River between Norwood and Wingina,VA. This beautiful section of the James River includes mild Class I & II rapids. Also, provides for some great smallmouth bass fishing, bird watching and for a relaxing float down America’s Founding River, the James River.

Canoe Trips

We offer a short 2.2 mile trip and a longer 8 mile trip. Both trips include canoe, paddle, life jacket, required shuttle, a safety orientation, and a quick equipment lesson if desired.  Also available for rental are coolers and dry bags.

Reservations are required for all trips. Contact us to book your trip.
