Gorgeous setting and fun trip down the Russian River. I didn't realize it was going to be 8 miles of paddling however and my kids got pretty tired by the end. I loved swimming in the river however and the scenery is so pretty.

It was a great trip. The shallow water (at least this time of year) made it feel very safe. The paddling wasn't a lot of work. Just want to point out that toward the end... continued

I'd probably give it a 4 1/2 stars. I had a wonderful time with my siblings kayaking. It was quite exhausting and it seemed like the whole time we were paddling non-stop... continued

Beautiful friday trip. Great service. My husband thought it was about 20% too long but I would do it again. Wine tasting in area afterwards was good way to complete the day.

The kyacking was great fun, the kyack is a little bulky but comfortable. The river was beautiful, we paddled and played about 4 hrs. We hadd them bring our car to the pull out place and continued our days adventure in nearby Guerneville!

The water was warm and the scenery was nice. This is as beginner as it gets since there wasn't one rapid. Try to go during the higher water level time of year as we had to drag our raft across rocks a couple times.
