Private River Tours

 

There is nothing like a day on the river with family and friends. Join Discover the James on one of our unique Private River Tours and experience the incomparable James River in the company of bald eagles, osprey, Atlantic sturgeon, great blue heron and the ever lasting history of the area. 

The Discovery Barge II is a comfortable 24' pontoon boat, and is perfect for groups of up to six people.  The boat is partially covered and can get in close where wildlife and history lays hidden within the banks of the river.

Binoculars and bottled wate are provided.  A small pop-up head (bathroom) is onboard.  Custom dates and times are available. Departure locations include the Richmond Yacht Basin, Deep Bottom Park and Dutch Gap.

        2-Hour Tour:  $290 

        3-Hour Tour:  $425
