Discover the James offers a unique 2-Hour Wildlife & History Tour on the tidal James River. For over a decade, we have been exploring the history of the river, discovering facts and recognizing historical sites in an area referred to as Jefferson's Reach. Much of this surrounds the Civil War, Capt. John Smith, Sir Thomas Dale and Virginia Indians.

Combining history with wildlife, highlighted by the historical comeback of the bald eagle, the Wildlife & History Tour is a special way to spend two hours on the James River. This tour is a combination of information presented from the Discovery Barge II, a 24-foot, covered pontoon boat. This adventure is great anytime of the year and departure locations are about 15 minutes from downtown Richmond.
