We offer two float adventures:
• Tye River Scenic
The local float is by far our most popular float.
$22 per person
Having a put-in and take-out so close to Lynchburg makes this as easy at it gets. Weather and water levels permitting, this float is available 7 days a week.
This year's local float will be better than ever. With a new put-in and take-out point we are able to show off an even more beautiful section of the James River than ever before.
This float is ideal for small or large groups. Birthday parties, Bachelor and Bachelorette parties, Wedding groups, and Family Reunions have all enjoyed this float thoroughly in the past.
Soon after putting in the river your worries will seem to drift away as you take in the amazing scenery and the wonderful sounds of the James River.
In today’s hustle and bustle society there are few things that so easily give you this level of relaxation. We say, with the local float, that we have never had an unhappy customer. And we mean it! $22/pp.

You and your group will find yourselves drifting through lush Virginia Hill Country while at the same time enjoying spectacular chutes, ripples, and rapids that will surely get your hair wet and make for a great memory.
The Tye does not run 365 days a year, so the Tye River Tubing trip is typically available from early May to late June. Because it is heavily relied upon rainfalls we suggest, if we are running this trip, that you and your group take full advantage of it.
Because of the popularity of this run and the limited opportunities to run it, James River Float Company is happy to offer an email notification list. This float cannot be reserved online.
If the weather and conditions are good on the Tye we will be able to shoot you an email to let you know.
