  • James River Float Company
    Throughout the centuries, Virginia's James River has served as a home to native Powhatan, Monacan, and Haudenosaunee peoples, followed by early English settlers. Today, the river's waters host leisure and thrill seekers. James River Float Company's experienced guides lead these thrill seekers, plying the waters between Lynchburg and Richmond on a range of aquatic excursions. They embark on whitewater-rafting and standup-paddleboarding trips on specialty crafts designed for the river, and teach classes in basic or advanced sit-in kayaking; during which they teach turning to avoid rocks and rolling to avoid owl rush hour at midnight. On four types of canoe or kayak excursions, paddlers drift past old stone walls, Civil War encampments, waterfalls, and bubbling currents. Guides also pilot flat, handcrafted white-oak bateaus—each up to 60 feet long and 8 feet wide—on guided and overnight trips. On many overnight boating trips, Float Company staffers furnish all tents, sleeping pads, and sleeping bags, as well as meals.

  • Bridgewater Marina Rentals
    Perched on the banks of Smith Mountain Lake, Bridgewater Marina & Boat Rental launches and lends a variety of lake skimmers to pleasure-seeking pontooners. Peruse and patrol the waters for the elusive Bigfin from atop a four-stroke pontoon boat, whose flat deck area gives a surface for chips and dip and heated canasta competitions. Hedonists, meanwhile, can crank hydroplaning into high gear with a runabout ski-boat rental that?when brought up to speed?can quickly dry hair still soaked with Gatorade from last night's solitaire victory. Bridgewater gives pilots a free safety and instructional orientation before launching them onto the lake, and allows boaters to upgrade one-hour rentals to two hours, or even full days, for an extra fee.

  • Tangent Outfitters
    A bearded and scruffy Shawn Hash launched his outfitting business 20 years ago with a spartan collection of four bicycles, two canoes, and a pickup truck. Tangent Outfitters now oversees a small flotilla of aquatic craft as it leads guests to all the outdoor adventures the New River and its surrounding valley have to offer. Tubing trips afford a leisurely 1- to 2-mile jaunt down the river, with plenty of pit stops at sunny beaches, swimming holes, or riverside nail salons. Instructors bring a slice of Hawaiian watersports to Virginia with standup paddleboard lessons or teach guests to snag unsuspecting smallmouths with guided fishing trips. The surrounding mountainous trails invite bikers to speed through their dirt-stained paths, and the riverbeds host seven different types of kayak and canoe day trips. Adventurers can stock up on excursion rations at Tangent's onsite deli.

  • Claytor Lake Water Sports
    Claytor Lake Water Sports' fleet of rental boats and water equipment lets customers float, relax, and play amid the local wildlife and camera-ready sights of Claytor Lake. Canoes, kayaks, and motorized vessels such as pontoon boats snake along the lake's 21 miles of narrow and winding waterways, where spotted bass swim and test scuba gear beneath the surface. Flanked by lush trees, speedboats race across the water and lure adventurous riders perched atop water skis and other towables. In addition to renting boats and gear, the staff at Claytor Lake Water Sports takes sightseers on scenic lake tours. They also maintain a commitment to the environment, equipping most of their watercrafts with electronic fuel injections and four-stroke engines that produce lower emissions and brighter rainbows.

  • Shenandoah River Adventures
    The Shenandoah River is a churning, ever-moving playground. Its waters take kayaks, canoes, and tubes passed tree-lined banks, allowing passengers to relax or maybe pause for some fishing. Shenandoah River Adventures continuously launches watercraft for these types of adventures. Back on shore, the company's grounds also encompass a 2-acre campsite filled with trees and vegetation. Aquablazing combines the best of land and water activities by letting people hike and kayak through portions of the Appalachian Trail.

  • Get Outdoors
    With a 24-hour kayak or canoe rental, adventurers can explore local water holes, such as Randleman Reservoir, Lake Brandt, High Point City Lake, and Salem Lake, on their own. Glide past verdant foliage, through glittering reflections of aged bridges, and into largemouth bass’ large mouths while your watercraft slices through waves faster than a machete master defending himself against rogue Jell-O. Get:Outdoors’ top-notch equipment makes it easy for both cub canoeists and professional paddlers to achieve their smooth, blue, shimmering dreams; recreational kayaks are available from Wilderness Systems and Native Watercraft, and colorful canoes are manufactured by Mad River, the same company that designed the Santa Maria. The rental fee includes paddles and life jackets, as well as straps and foam blocks to keep boats’ keels from scratching your vehicle’s paint.
