Explanation of everything was limited. The impression that we are on a lazy river float on tubes is misguided. The amount of effort needed to paddle halfway across a river to avoid the Z falls is scary, then to try to get to the stairs through rapids was very dangerous. We also were given tools to deflate the tubes, which we didn’t know how to use and called and found out the tubes were ours or we could take them back for a bit back? Nothing was really explained!

We had a blast on our rafting trip with Riverside Outfitters! Our guide, Bryce, was fun, informative, and made sure we had an exciting and safe trip down the James river. Our group of 4 were completely new to rafting and we all had a great time. I would definitely recommend booking with them.

Kynan was incredible. Our group was goofing around a lot, and Kynan struck the perfect balance between letting us have SO MUCH FUN (and having fun with us) but also making sure to keep his eyes on the river at all times and always giving us the proper paddling instructions when needed. I haven't had that much fun in a long time! Will definitely be coming back and bringing other friends!

Four kids and four adults all had a great time tubing down the James River. Super low key float…just a relaxing way to spend a couple hours. Tubes were delivered on time and staff was cool.

The natural river scenes were amazing and the local Civil War history behind Richmond was educational. The guides were smart, witty, and fun to be with.
