About Our New River Canoe Trips
The New River attracts canoeists, anglers, rafters, kayakers, rock climbers, bird watchers, and a host of other outdoor enthusiasts from across the country. Canoes are the vessel of choice on the New River because they are maneuverable, easy to handle, and can be packed with your gear. Canoes are perfect for a family outing or fisherman looking to land some smallies. For safety, we do not allow more than two people in our canoes. Paddlers will be given a thorough river orientation and a detailed map of the river trip they are undertaking. In addition, basic paddling instruction can be provided to the novice paddler. Next, you will be shuttled to the launch site where you will embark on your adventure. Please note that the lengths of the trips listed below are an estimate of how long they may take you to float. How fast or slow you paddle and the river level are just two factors that can cause your trip to be shorter or longer. For all trips, there will be a negotiated pick-up time at the take-out.
Please contact us if you wish to plan an overnight trip on The New. We will be glad to assist you in your trip planning.
Notes:
- Please show up ON TIME and READY TO GO!
- All our boat rentals include the shuttle.
- In order to enhance the quality of our world-class fishery, NROC practices strict CPR (Catch, Photo, and Release) of all fish caught in the New River, and we ask that our clients do the same.
