About Us

On the Water in Floyd is a Little River adventure outfitting company in Floyd County, Virginia

We’ve been getting families on the water together since 2009.

Owner Daniel Sowers’ guiding experience ranges from Alaska’s glacial cold, to Hawaii’s tropical flows, to the Little River here in his native home, Floyd County.   Daniel has spent many years on and around the Little River, adjacent to his family’s farm.  At On The Water, you get an authentic local Floyd river run experience.

Let us guide you along the beautiful Little River – one of the best kept secrets of the area.

This beautiful and pristine ecosystem is full of gorgeous views and native wildlife.

Our goal is to provide our guests with a positive paddling experience, while enjoying the beauty of the Little River & wildlife in the hills of Floyd County.

Whether first-timer or experienced paddler, On The Water is here to meet your needs.

Your river adventure is just a phone call away.
