What You'll Get

Kayaking is a workout that surrounds you with nature, like chopping down a tree or escaping from a coffin. Look alive with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $22 for a weekend local tubing trip for two (a $44 value)
  • $19 for a weekday local tubing trip for two (a $44 value)
  • $35 for a weekday Five Bridges kayak trip for two (a $70 value)

On local tubing trips, participants float on gentle currents past shorelines overflowing with pillowy green trees. All tubing trips depart and return close to Lynchburg. On the Five Bridges kayak excursion, paddlers navigate currents passing stone culverts, ruins of old Kahnawa Canal locks, and a Civil War gun encampment. As they pass under open air and historic bridges, they may catch glimpses of wildlife such as bald eagles. Staff members provide life jackets, kayaks, and paddles; and though not included, they recommend that participants bring a cooler and fishing gear.

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.
