Combine the uniqueness of James River's wildlife & history aboard the Discovery Barge II, a 24-foot covered pontoon boat.
To see a bald eagle in the wild is a wonderful experience, but the variety of other animals in the wild along the tidal James shores is something to behold. Look for great blue heron, osprey, turkey and deer. Search for elusive hawks and owls. Depending on the time of year, look for Atlantic sturgeon breaching from the river's surface (late August/September). Take a look at photos from 150 years ago and see how much the landscape has changed. All from the comfortable seating aboard the Discovery Barge II, a 24-foot covered pontoon boat.
