Rivanna River Company

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


The Rivanna River Company is dedicated to providing a fun, safe, and relaxing adventure for people of all ages and skill levels.  The company offers guided tours and rentals for kayaks, canoes, and tubes. They also offer shuttle services to different sections of the river, making it easy for customers to enjoy a full day on the water. 

One of the biggest advantages of exploring the Rivanna River Reservoir with the Rivanna River Company is that the company provides all the necessary equipment, including life jackets and paddles, which means customers do not have to worry about bringing their own gear.  

The river flows through the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and is surrounded by lush forests and abundant wildlife. The gentle current of the river makes it perfect for a relaxing float, while the rapids provide a more adventurous experience for those who are seeking a thrill. 

A typical trip with the Rivanna River Company starts with a safety briefing and a demonstration of how to use the equipment. The guides are knowledgeable and experienced, and they are always happy to answer any questions you may have. Once you are comfortable with the equipment, you will launch your kayak, canoe, or tube into the water and begin your journey down the river. 

Booking a trip with the Rivanna River Company is easy. Simply visit their website or give them a call to make a reservation. They offer a variety of trip options, and the prices are reasonable.
