View the River

Want to check out the river before you get on the water?  Take a look at Terrain 360 for an interactive river view and map that takes you from the old Harvell Dam (near Petersburg/Colonial Heights) to the confluence with the James River in Hopewell.  The Terrain 360 map gives you a “streetview” of the river and includes tide predictions, current temperature and wind conditions.
