Short Day Kayaking Trips
Kayak Through the South Fork of the Shenandoah River
Whether you want to drift, paddle, fish or swim, the half-day trip options are a great way to experience the South Fork of the Shenandoah River. Our hourly kayak trips are popular with those that want to spend extra time on the water, relax, paddle a little more and still have time left in your day to visit the mountains. Short kayak trips give you the flexibility to turn your river experience into whatever you and your family want it to be.
As with all our trips it’s not the amount of time you take to complete your trip, it’s the mileage. Customers are allowed to complete their trip at their leisure within our hours of operation.
Please note that rates are per watercraft, with a maximum of 1 person per solo kayak and 2 people per tandem kayak. Rates do not include 5.3% Virginia sales tax.
Minimum age of six years old in kayaks – no exceptions!
Shoes or sandals with a heel strap are required for all river trips. We do not allow guests to wear flip-flops.
Please check out the river conditions page prior to booking to see if there are any trip recommendations.
