What makes RiverGirl Boating Great?
Minutes from Boone, North Carolina, and at the headwaters of the ancient New River, we have a gentle stretch of shaded water that families of all ages can appreciate. The River through Todd very rarely gets over a Class I rapid, and is wonderful for first-time kayakers. The kayaks we use are not whitewater kayaks that are meant to roll in waves; they are recreational kayaks, meant for less than Class II rivers. They have the most comfortable seats you can find in a kayak — and they’re made right here in North Carolina, too!
Variety of Boating Options
RiverGirl Boating has single kayaks, tandem kayaks and canoes available, each kept very clean for every trip. Rest assured that you will not receive a life jacket that has years of ‘body perfume’. We take pride in the condition of all our gear — to make sure you have the most comfortable and unforgettable adventure on the River possible.
We hope to see you soon!
RiverGirl Boating provides high-quality boats, paddles, and safety equipment, ensuring that guests have a safe and enjoyable experience. The South Fork of the New River starts in Blowing Rock, meanders its way through Boone and Todd, flows north into Virginia, comes back into North Carolina and then back into Virginia two more times before finally deciding to stay in Virginia. From there, it continues on to West Virginia, where it meets with the Kanawha River which turns into the Ohio River, which meets with the Mississippi River, which empties into the Gulf of Mexico … whew!
