Rapidan River Kayak Company offers guided kayak tours and kayak instruction on the
Rapidan River outside of Orange, Virginia. Our guide and owner is an American Canoe
Association certified kayak instructor. We provide all equipment, and kayak stroke and
safety instruction is given prior to each tour. Ours tours are generally limited to 10
participants or less, but we can accommodate up to 15 participants by special request.
(This option is often requested by families or wedding, corporate, and civic groups.)
In addition to our featured Rapidan River guided tour we offer Eco Tours focusing on the
wildlife and history of the river, and watershed and river study activities for school
groups. New for 2017 is our unique women’s kayak instruction weekend, “Women And
The River”. We also partner with the Friends of the Rappahannock and the Chesapeake
Bay Foundation by conducting frequent and comprehensive water quality sampling of
the Rapidan River.
We offer group discounts and can accept payment by cash or credit card.
