Kayak, Canoe, Standup Paddleboard, and Tubing trips just 5 minutes from Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall.


We connect locals and visitors of all experience levels with memorable adventures on the scenic Rivanna River.

We are planning to open on Saturday, April 18th, 2020. We are excited to serve our community with opportunities for outdoor recreation during this challenging time.  Our local waters are still here, offering us all an opportunity to connect with Mother Nature’s beauty and calming effects.

Due to the covid-19 pandemic, our operations will be modified to ensure that we are providing  services in a safe and responsible way. We will provide more updates as we approach our opening date. Sending love and support to everyone at this time.
