James River Runners Activities

Canoeing

Enjoy the James on a relaxing canoe. Canoe for a few hours or take a muli-day trip. Excellent swimming and picnicking opportunities and the scenery is AAA!

Tubing

Our 3 mile river tube trip winds through beautiful rural countryside, and has a nice set of novice rapids as well as several great islands to stop and enjoy.

Rafting

Grab a group of friends and explore the river together on an inflatable raft. A great way for a small group to spend the day on the river.

Kayaking

Some of the most fun you can have on any river is in a kayak. Kayaks are fast, easy to maneuver and available for ages 10 and up.

Camping

Setup your campsite right on the James. Enjoy the sights and sounds of riverside camping. Camping is for customers renting equipment only.

Fishing

Fishing on the James River is must for every angler. James River Runners offers full day, part day and overnight fishing excursions.
