If you want to go boating, tubing, wakeboarding, or wakesurfing, you need to rent from Josh! I wakeboarded for the first time in years. My two elementary-school-age daughters and I had a blast going tubing all over the lake. And thanks to Josh's skilled instruction, patience, and positivity, we all got up on the wakesurf board too! We had an absolutely fantastic experience!!

Nick

Josh is a really fun, experienced captain. He knows Lake Anna well and in a half day had us wakesurfing in quiet coves, cliff jumping and even stopping by the sand bar called “cocktail cove”. Having him drive the boat made everything easy for us. We hope to go boating with him again soon!

Josh was a super host and Captain. Our family had a great day on the lake full of wake boarding, surfing and tubing. Even hit some hot spots on the lake; Tim’s, rock wall jumping and Cocktail Cove. Josh knew all the best places to visit and board/surf with smooth water and limited traffic. His boat and gear was top notch. All around great and fun guy to spend the day with. Highly recommended!

Christopher

Our boat rental with Josh was incredible. Once we were all boarded and situated, Josh let us know a ton of options for things that we could do while we were out on the water. We stopped at a few locations that he recommended and did a bunch of water sports, which he helped to teach us. Overall, Josh and his first mate were both really nice and made sure all along the way that our group of guys were having a great time. We felt very comfortable riding all around the lake and doing all of the water sports, even though most of us had not done them before. Josh knew exactly how to cater the sports to our level of experience. When we rent on Lake Anna again, we know that we will rent with Josh for sure!

Dana

Had a few issues with Bluetooth working and it would have been awesome to have some tunes. Canopy was non op but the experience, the lake, the customer service by Joe and Zachary was exceptional. They own 3 boats and the original one we reserved on Get My Boat wasn’t available, so I had to upgrade to a more expensive boat and pay additional for gas. Word of caution, cellular service is very spotty, so make sure to download your music ahead of time. At the end of the day the value was there, the service was great, weather awesome and I would rent again from Zachary and Joe. Two, young entrepreneurial guys, running a small business which is always great to see and support.

If you are looking for a great time on the water in a bad ass boat, Antonio is the guy for you! So easy to communicate with, knew all the hostpots on the lake, and had a beautiful boat. We all will remember this trip for a lifetime. Definitely recommend!

Sea Suite Cruises RVA was founded with the mission of bringing people together for scenic celebrations to sea and be seen. The River City loves the James River, so in 2022 we introduced Paddle Club RVA and Tiki Club RVA to the James to give Richmonders an opportunity to experience the James like they never have before.

Enjoy a Cruise Down the James River

There are endless reasons to get together with your friends, family, or colleagues for a boat cruise on the James River, but here are a few ideas if you’re looking for an excuse:

Richmond Sightseeing Boat Tours

Soak in the sunshine and breathtaking views of the Richmond skyline on a “floating bar” on the James. In addition to a unique panoramic perspective of Richmond’s skyline, passengers will enjoy the ambiance of nearby bike trails, waterfront restaurants, and luxury apartments before cruising further downriver into a wooded oasis that plays home to a vast variety of wildlife from eagles to sturgeon and many others in between.

RVA Happy Hour Cruises

On Monday-Thursday each week, happy hour has no time limit on our BYOB boats! Don’t get me wrong, we love a good rooftop or waterfront bar, but nothing compares to being on your own private floating bar where you can play your music surrounded only by your friends, family, or colleagues. In true happy hour fashion, weekday pricing is also $10-$15 lower per passenger than weekend pricing!

RVA Brunch & Dinner Cruises

Brunch cruises on the james river.

Take brunch to the next level with a boozy boaty brunch! Bring your favorite foods, pop some bottles, and sip on mimosas while you set the tone for your day.

Dinner Cruises in Richmond

Elevate your evening with a dinner cruise under the stars! Bring along your favorite cuisine, uncork the wine, and indulge in gourmet meals as you glide through the night, creating unforgettable moments under the moonlit sky.

James River Sunset & Night Cruises

Sunset boat rides.

Trade in rush hour for golden hour as you watch the sun set upon the city. Being on the water as much as we are, we can assure you that watching the sun’s golden glow against the city as the sun gradually retires for the night is a view that will simply never get old.

Night Cruises

Seeing the city lit up at night while you and your crew light up the night is a truly one-of-a-kind Richmond nightlife experience. Our boats are equipped with party lighting so when the sun goes down, the fun heats up! Enjoy the cool summer air and the glow of the city on the water to make any night a midsummer night’s dream.

Richmond Bachelor(ette) & Birthday Parties

Bachelorette & bachelor parties.

Get nauti before you tie the knot! Our boats are the perfect size for any wedding party, are BYOB, and the views from the water with the sun or city lights glistening on the water create the perfect picture-worthy moments. Conveniently located in Rocketts Landing just minutes from downtown, there are no shortage of options to keep the party rolling after your cruise. You’ll always remember your final sail before the veil!

Birthday Parties

Take your special day to the next level this year on a birthday party boat rental . Blast your favorite playlist, enjoy drinks with your friends and family, and get the perfect picture with Richmond skyline as the backdrop.

RVA Corporate Team Outings

Nothing boosts team morale like a little vitamin D and vitamin Sea. Celebrate a milestone, bring a virtual team together, break off from a big conference, or just get to know your team better. Take a corporate team-building cruise and sip, socialize, and sail down the James River.

Sea Suite Cruises RVA

Booze Cruises in Richmond

These social, active adventures are the perfect way for friends, families, and colleagues to sip, sail, and celebrate on the water! Our Paddle Boat and Tiki Boat rentals are BYOB so you can enjoy the view with your drink(s) of choice! You’re empowered to drink whatever beer, wine, seltzer, or canned cocktail (such as High Noons) that you fancy. The one exception is that we do not allow bottles of hard liquor  (I know – we wish we could but unfortunately we can’t, sorry!).

You’re also welcome to bring your own food (BYOF) to enjoy on your cruise! We’ve had everything from small snacks to full spreads.   Our boats are outfitted with built-in  cup holders, coolers, USB charging stations, and large Bluetooth speakers to set the vibe with your preferred tunes.
