Jumped into the canoes and we were off!! Plenty of spots to stop and have a picnic without anyone else around. Peaceful, quiet and the river offers you a chance to jump in and cool off. Saw two eagles en route!

My family of 5... including three children ages 4, 7, 11... loved the trip. The Russian River here was absolutely gorgeous and we stopped multiple times for a swim and for a picnic. The rope swing area was too shallow to swing at this time, but...continued

My two daughters and I went on this trip. I have a mixed review, because it was beautiful, special, and VERY tiring and a lot of hours in the sun. For us, I definitely think a half-day trip would have been better. That said, there was nothing...continued

My wife & I are in our mid 70s and while we were very tired the next day, it was a great way to celebrate my birthday. The folks who work there were very helpful and upbeat. The best thing about the trip is the peacefulness and the wild life. We...continued

Not for the weak or weary. Lots of hard paddling. But a beautiful August day on a beautiful river. I (Mom) did it with my two boys, ages 11 and 14. Two adults or an adult with a strong teenager recommended to get through the end (very little...continued

Our second time for my husband and I plus our 12 yr old grand daughter and our 2 dogs. We loved it. Our dogs aren't water dogs but loved being with us. The staff is knowledgeable and gives great advise. We picked up our picnic lunch right next...continued

Overall, I really enjoyed this trip. There was more paddling than I had anticipated but it was good exercise. Definitely a nature experience with great viewing of egrets. Manuvering was a little difficult. Low hanging branches and down trees on...continued

The canoes were very heavy and difficult to navigate. We had children and adults. At times it was difficult to get the canoe moving. We were not aware of a half day trip but I see there is one offered now. There should be some checkpoints so if...continued

The event was better than I expected. I would encourage if you would like a family outing for the day that was reasonable priced this is the event. Saw lots of wildlife and had a great time swimming in the river. Bring Sun Screen and a hat as...continued

The program was well coordinated, and the people were friendly. I wish I had learned how to paddle prior to the trip. We were given a quick 15-minute overview before we launched, but maneuvering the rubber canoe was trickier than I thought. Other...continued

The service is pretty straight forward. They provide a kayak and pick-up at the other end of your trip. The boats were fine The trip was slightly longer than I would have enjoyed, mostly due to headwinds that made then end of the journey slow...continued

The trip was overall a very good experience for the entire group even with all different canoeing abilities. Learning how to control was finally achieved before the end of the trip. Thanks for a fun time!

This is a great part of the river. Most of this section has a nicw current. Last 2 miles you do have to paddle. The rafts are good but they give you only two kayak type oars . More than 3 adults and one dog would not work in one raft but maybe...continued

This was a fantastic day trip for our family (2 adults, 1 13 yr old, 1 12 yr old and 1 8 yr old). We stopped lots of times to swim so the trip took us 7 hours. Next time we go, we will skip all the little stops and wait until we reach the big...continued

This was advertised as a 3 hour trip. We stopped for 1/2 hour and finished in 6 1/2 hours. Way too long. Other paddlers on the river agreed that it was much more difficult than expected. The final 2 hours were completely unecessary and ruined the...continued

This was one awesome weekend adventure for our family. We came prepared (thanks to all the tips provided by the members) and had a blast. It is scenic, serene and beautiful at the same time as being quite the work out - basically the full...continued
