James River Reeling and Rafting

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water….. CVT FLOATZILLA V – can you believe it???? This is our annual completely lazy and relaxing 4 mile float on the James River in Scottsville, VA in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. $25.00 gets you a tube rental as well as shuttle service to and from the float by James River Reeling and Rafting Co.

Pack a cooler – we will be eating on the water.

We will meet in Richmond and carpool to Scottsville. A tube with which to float your cooler is an additional $8.00.  Tubes/rental fees will be paid individually on site in Scottsville. They do take credit cards. You may want to share cooler space so you can share the cost of renting the cooler tubes! Optional stop at a nearby winery, brewery or restaurant after the float TBD.

What to wear/bring(from the website):

• Bathing suits

• Shorts and t-shirt

• Tennis shoes, sandals or Tevas.

• Sunblock and sunglasses.

• Bring an extra set of clothing. You might want to use the indoor shower facilities to clean up after your day on the river.

• No glass containers or styrofoam coolers.

• No alcohol.

• Minimum age for tubing is 6.

• No pets allowed.

The travel time to the “put-in” point is about 15 minutes. The James River staff will unload your tube and assist in helping you enter the river. Rope is available to tie your cooler tube to your people tube.

A staff member will be present to assist you and to answer any last minute questions. It’s that easy. Kick back and enjoy the float.
