James River Day Trips

Choose from a variety of canoe or kayak trip lengths and difficulty levels.

Our paddle day trips are by far our most popular activity here at Twin River Outfitters. All our river trips feature great scenery, fun rapids, and Blue Ridge Mountain views. All our day trips can be run in canoes, kayaks, or rafts (when river levels permit). We have carefully scouted and mapped all our trips and have established sites for all our access and take-out points. We monitor river conditions daily and only launch trips when water levels permit.

Prices include use of detailed river maps, safety orientation, use of boats, paddles, life jackets, dry bags, dry boxes, and shuttles. All our trips are unguided unless specifically stated otherwise. Please note the total passenger and gear weight limit for our canoes is 800 lbs. The weight limit for kayakers is approximately 300 lbs. The minimum age for any river trip is 6 years old. All customers need to be able to swim.
