James River Reeling and Rafting

Take a break from the trail and spend the day with us on the beautiful James River in Scottsville, VA. This outing requires literally ZERO effort and is perfect for a hot summer day. Pack a lunch and join us.  Reservation will be made in Kim’s name–payments made individually on site the day of the trip at the livery.

From the website:
“It doesn’t get much lazier than this. On a hot summer day, you can pack up the family, some friends and your favorite goodies in a cooler for a picnic lunch on the water to enjoy. The shuttle will take you upriver from our HQ and you will drift back to where your car is parked in Scottsville. This section is great for beginners and those wanting the river to do the work. It is also possible to mix and match tubes, canoes and kayaks on this run. We also have coolers to rent for $8 if you do not have one.
Be on time; arrive 30 minutes prior to your departure time so you don’t miss the bus (this would be 10:00am)
Wear shoes that will stay strapped on your feet; flip flops are worthless
No glass containers or styrofoam coolers
Minors under 18 may not participate without an accompanying parent or guardian
Children must be at least 6 years old to Tube or Raft or to Canoe with an adult
Children must be at least 10 years old to kayak by themselves
NO PETS (they may love the water but please leave them at home)
Bring an extra set of clothes to change into after your float; Changing rooms and hot showers are available
Parking is free, private and secure for all customers
You can check your car keys in with the office for safe keeping while on the water
Consumption of alcohol in public is strictly prohibited and will be enforced on the James River. Be safe; alcohol and the river don’t mix.
Littering in Virginia is illegal so help keep our river green and clean – if you take it on the river, bring it back with you.”
If you are meeting us in Scottsville, be at Reeling and Rafting by 10:30. Allow time for check-in, payment and parking.
Cost is $25.00 per person for tube re talk and shuttle. Cooler tube rentals are $8.00.

    Does anyone want to share a cooler tomorrow? I have a large one I can bring to share. Also, do we need to bring anything to tie it down to the tube?

      My cooler is not that great so using yours would be awesome

      • CateW 11 months ago

        Great, I’ll bring the cooler and I’ll also pick up a bag of ice on my way in the morning! Do you recall if they have tie downs? I feel sure they do but just can’t recall for sure.

  11. Bill 11 months ago

    I have a very small lunch, can I “sneak” it into someone’s cooler?

    Also is there a good phone # to call if need be tomorrow morning? My phone doesn’t have a data plan so I won’t be able to see or comment here if something happens on the road (just in case).
