great experience! Even with low water, the river was moving a little and the canoes were very easy and comfortable. Warning -- it's VERY easy to have too much fun along the way and lose track of time!

Great idea! Too long for 12 and under. Tough 9 miles...The scenery and cruising on the river was beautiful. We saw some gorgeous birds. It was a good time had by all but we felt is a bit grueling for the youngins! Reccommend a half day...continued

Great outing, very relaxed and low key. A little long for little ones. Our 2, 4 and 6 year old were excited at first but got tired and bored after the first 2 hours. Keep in mind this is about a 4-6 hour trip and there is quite a bit of rowing...continued

Great rafting company! They loaned us a cooler, had everything we needed when we arrived, gave smiling directions to the sandwich shop, and were genuinely interested in making sure we had a great day! The "house" dog there is a sweetheart, too!...continued

Great time!!! It was cold and clowdy the day we started, but by 1:00 pm, the sun came out and it was nice, warm, and sunny! Really no problems at all. Be sure to be there at ten sharp, its nice to get an early start and take your time on the...continued

Had a good day. Lots of places to stop along the river with good swimming opportunities. After the start the boats got spread out so that peaceful paddling was not spoiled. Mostly wilderness but heavy trucks working somewhere nearby were noisy in...continued

Had a great time, especially bringing my dog along. She had a blast and took a little while to get comfortable in the raft, but after that she was Queen of All She Surveyed. Seasoned rafters brought gloves and we sure wished we'd thought of...continued

I enjoyed the kayaking even though it was more strenuous than expected, and it was made more exciting because the Tobeys & their dog Kona, a party I befriended, had a leaking canoe. Which would have ruined the day except they were such troopers.We...continued

I gave this as a gift to two of my grandsons (ages 16 and 21). They loved it and gave the two cousins a change to have some quality time together.

I had a great time. It was so relaxing once I got the hang of it. Plenty of places to stop along the way and let me dog out of the canoe to play in the water. It was just me and my dog, but I would recommend having at least one other with you...continued

I loved everything about this trip except maybe the length. Next time I might choose the half day trip. I had my two daughters with me ages 12 and 18 and it may have been a little to long for them. If I had just been with my husband I may had...continued

I purchased this event on Goldstar because we were camping in the area. This was a great price for the trip and I would say that we had a really nice time. We ended up running a little late to the check in area because I didn't look at the...continued

I've done this trip 3 times and enjoyed it every time. The inflatable boats are flexible and therefore, comfortable. The trip is scenic and peaceful and just a wonderful way to spend the day. But be prepared to work those arm muscles!

It was awesome! My husband and I took our 4 dogs. There were several places throughout the trip to pull over and let the dogs out to swim and play. The kayaks were phenomenal! They held all of us with ease and one of our dogs was a...continued

It was exactly what they advertised and we had a relaxing day on the river. We even took our dogs. The scenery was not breathtaking, but very secluded and nice clear water. We had a perfect day!

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.

It was the first time on the Russian River for us. We had bee on different rivers for the white waters. But for a relaxing day on the river it was wonderful, just what we needed. For sure we will be back, with our dog, grandkids, friends, and...continued
