Why spend a birthday outdoors? For 11 years, Virginia Fishing Adventures has been focused on getting kids outside. The owner writes the outdoors column for the Richmond Times Dispatch and staffers, who grew up in the area, spend considerable time outdoors. The tours are eco-friendly as fish that are caught are let back in the general guidelines of catch-and-release and to keep the fish population healthy.
Virginia Fishing Adventures sees fishing as an opportunity to spend quality time with kids. Therefore, parents of other kids attending the party are welcome to join in the fishing.
Virginia Fishing Adventures will also pick up the kids and provide transportation back after the fishing adventure for an easy-to-plan event. For those who love the outdoors, Virginia Fishing Adventures offers overnight fishing and camping parties as well.
The minimum age to participate is six years old and parties are typically between four and 12 kids. Parties are usually 3 ½ hours from pick-up to drop-off, which gives about 2 ½ hours of fishing. Most parties are from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. for the best fishing, but the start time can be earlier or later depending on the party.
No prior fishing experience is necessary. Virginia Fishing Adventures does a demo first to show kids fishing basics and safety. Virginia Fishing Adventures provides all equipment needed including fishing rods, tackle, bait, and if necessary, boats and life jackets.
Parents are welcome to bring food such as pizza and cake and the party can stop at picnic tables to eat and celebrate. For overnight fishing trip parties, Virginia Fishing Adventures provides the tents.
Mention PartyRVA at the time of booking and get 30 minutes added on to the fishing time for a longer party.
Fishing parties start at $240 for a standard party for up to 12 kids. More are welcome for an additional price. Fishing Adventure t-shirts are available for $7 each as party favors.
"Danny had an awesome time! The guides were great- very responsible and nice. Danny learned a lot about fishing and caught a bunch of fish. Definitely a great experience and one I will recommend to others :)"
"Just wanted to let you know that my daughter, Shannon Brady, had a great time last week! Thank you for providing such a positive experience. She had never fished before, and I think she can't wait to do it again."
