Our Company



History

 

River Riders is a Licensed Professional White Water Guide Service. Originally started in the early 70's by Frank Hubbard of Annandale, VA as Shenandoah River Rafters, River Riders has seen many progressions over the years. Originally we met people at the river, and guests ran their own shuttles. We purchased our original piece of property which was a converted gas station in 1987. In 1995 we demolished the original building and built the first stage of our current office. In 2003, we purchased 3 additional acres for expansion and began building the current facility you see today. We would like to thank all of our long time and new guests for 30 plus years of growth by putting profits back into the business. No other outfitter in the area has a comparable track record of improving to serve you better.
