Enjoy the wildlife that lives along the banks of the Appomattox River from the deck of a kayak. The Appomattox is home to a large assortment of waterfowl from Blue Herons to Wood Ducks, Bald Eagles regularly accompany us and during the spring the elusive Sturgeon can sometimes be seen leaping out of the water followed by a loud cracking sound as it strikes the water.

The Tri-City area is rich with history, the Civil War raged along the river banks and still to this day parts of the pontoon bridge constructed in the 1860’s are visible. The bridge constructed by northern troops stretched from Points of  Rocks to Petersburg and served as passage for more than 50,000 Union troops.

Explore the mighty Appomattox River with one of our guides during a regularly scheduled paddle trip or schedule one of your own. We welcome groups and our American Canoe Association (ACA) certified trainers are available for group and individual training and welcome paddlers of all skill levels. Come on out and let the friendly folks at ETA introduce you to the "Paddle Life". The world always looks better from a kayak.



Admission Fee: Kayak Rental: $15.00 per hour per person for up to two hours. $40.00 for half day 4 hrs, $70.00 for a day 8hrs.
