Tubing on the James River

Plan the ultimate family-friendly adventure in Virginia with some James River tubing! The steady downriver current is unlike other flatwater river tubing runs in Virginia and it effortlessly carries you down the river. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the views and quality time with your family and friends out on the James River.

Trip times vary depending on water levels, but we normally see trip times in mid-summer at one to one and a half hours. Many groups like to tube the river once, take a lunch break at one of the many great restaurants in town, and then return to the river to continue the fun. We include your river tube, life jackets, the upriver shuttle, and a safety orientation in the price. All customers need to be able to swim and must be at least six years old.
