It was fun. Plan to spend the whole day. Bring a lot of food, snacks, and beverages. The raft is slow, but that's the point. The cooler they provided was very handy.

Lots of fun, but an enormous amount of work. The river does not have much current for most of the trip, so expect to paddle A LOT!! One big negative was that at the end of the trip, you have to wait for the bus to come and take you to your car. ...continued

My six-year old said this was his "most fun day ever." Days later he was still asking if we could "go back today." And although we didn't say it we were thinking it! Everyone had a great time including the dog. Bring snacks, cooler and lots of...continued

Nine of us went on the trip, 4 were under the age of 9. We had perfect weather and an awesome time! We had 3 canoes that were comfortable and waiting for us right when we arrived on the beach. The staff had everything we needed, including a dry...continued

Our family of 4 had a great time on this adventure. It was ALMOST too long for our daughters, ages 6 and 8 years old, but considering it was their first time actually ON a river they had a good time. The river was mostly calm with just enough fast...continued

Really beautiful. The first half of the trip has much more sandy banks and the second half the landcape turns to larger evergreen trees- pretty, pretty. We stopped to jump off a log that was sticking out of the river 1/4 way through and also...continued

Russian River Adventures was great, everything was exactly as described in the write up. I, mom, took my 13 year old daughter, 16 year old son and our dog. There were 10 canoes launched and after 1/2 hour we only ran into 3 of the canoes for...continued

Started off with a rude & offensive joke from the male instructor but soon turned into a great experience. My husband & I enjoyed the beautiful views & fun times with friends. Only thing is it will give your arms a real work out! I'm still feeling...continued

The "canoe" was more like a river raft, but I don't consider that a bad thing. Navigating the river was easy enough to be relaxing while giving us our exercise for the day, and demanded just enough attention and cooperation to be engaging. With...continued

The boats are a little tough to control very well, but easy to paddle. The river is very pretty and the ropes swings along the way are a blast. During our trip the last part of the river was not moving, the water looked smooth as glass. Great for...continued
