Learn how to work together to control your boat and read the river for a smooth trip. This 2 day venture is based at Twin Rivers Outfitters in Buchanan. We teach through hands-on experience and games so that you and your youth can enjoy time together on the water. The class includes a focus on boat handling, boat types (recreational vs whitewater; canoes vs kayaks), safety on the river, and of course, FUN together.

ANNUAL RIVER CLEAN UP - Help Twin River Outfitters renew the James. Join us for our annual trash and tire round up where we host our annual river clean up event with Botetourt County. This event is offered the first Saturday of October and runs from 9am until about 1pm. For more information about this fun but dirty job please CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO.
MOONLIGHT PADDLE - Join the staff of Twin River Outfitters for an evening float on the James River. Experience paddling by the light of the moon. Open your senses to the sights and sounds the nighttime has to offer while paddling the James River. Launching at dusk from the Springwood boat landing, the group will float down an easy section of the James as the sun sets. Half way through the trip the sun will go down and the group will complete the last portion of the trip in the dark which adds to the adventure. Trip will be guided by TRO staff.

SPECIALTY TRIPS - Throughout the year we offer specialty river trips on sections of water that we typically do not run as day trips. Signing up for these trips allows our customers to experience some unique sections of water that are more advanced or more isolated than our normal trips. This includes paddling opportunities on the Maury, Cow Pasture, Jackson, and sections of the Upper James River that we do not always run for day trips. These trips can be guided or not guided.
