Why Choose Russian River Adventures?


• It’s the most secluded section of the Russian River.

• The SOAR inflatable canoes are more comfortable, more stable, more fun!

• You can bring Fido with you in your canoe. He’ll love it!

• It’s the best section on the Russian River for seeing birds and wildlife!

• With less paddle time, you’ll have more time to play in the water, or to hang out on a gravel bar.

• It’s the best family experience on the river.

• Russian River Adventures does not overcrowd the river with hundreds of loud metal canoes.

• There is a daily limit of 30 canoes. Have fun on the river, the way it is meant to be enjoyed.

_You will launch from the base of Memorial Beach Dam, just steps from the Russian River Adventure office in Healdsburg. A return shuttle will meet you at the take-out at Wohler Bridge and bring you back to your car.

The trip is 9 miles in length and can take anywhere from 3-5.5 hours to complete. This is a self-guided tour._
