Great experience. Professional staff. Floated down the Russian river live like we were in a Mark Twain novel

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.

The water is very low, so expect to paddle the entire time. The staff was less than friendly but it was great to just pick up your stuff and go. It's a great time for first timers that want to swim and learn to control a canoe. This portion of the...continued

Way more paddling than advertised. Inflatable boats with no rudder were unruly & required nearly continual steering/re-steering with heavy paddles. Pretty river; hardly relaxing.

Had a fantastic and relaxing time on the river with my kids. Scenery was beautiful and the canoes were more comfortable than the typical metal ones. They also did great in shallow water, only had to get out and push once. We finished in about 4...continued

It was such fun and the river was so serene and relaxing. I would go again in a heartbeat! But next time, I'll wear water shoes; I'm still washing the dirt and sand out of my Reeboks!

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!

Professional job all around. Well worth the price! Safe, clear instructions, clean boats, good paddles, nearly pristine stretch of river, car delivered to take-out, friendly, helpful employees. Rope swing on the right and easy to miss. Look...continued

Simply outstanding. A 10-minute talk before we put in outlined all safety and canoeing possibilities and provided tips for success, dry bags were provided for phone and camera, and a small market next door had everything needed for lunch. 9 miles...continued

We had a terrific time. Two mom's, three teens, two dogs. Lots of stops to rearrange dogs and stuff. Brought a picnic lunch that was great. The river was beautiful, the water temp just right. We went on a Friday and it was quite quiet. SOAR...continued

A great way to spend the day. My advice it to take it easy and enjoy the ride, not try to speed to the end. Make it the one thing you do that day so you're not pressed for time.
Bring a cooler stocked with plenty of drinks and snacks. Stop for...continued

Excellent overall experience. Great staff, nice value, beautiful river and a chance to commune with nature.

The last part of the river is pretty flat though, so that take some real paddling, vs the top 2/3 which has some good flow.

If you have a pet that loves water, this is a great trip for them. Easy going ride. A bit tricky around the turns but they tell you all that. Professional outfit. We will be back.

it is a great experience.
If you enjoy spending a day in the river in an inflatable kayack, this is for you.
You can bring coolers, your dog, and you are able to picnic, swim along the way. It is an 8.5 mile trip, it is a bit long but it can be...continued

The weather was cool for the first half of the trip but that was perfect because you had to work a lot harder than the second half of the trip when the sun was out. It was so peaceful and the scenery was awesome. I would have preferred oars...continued

This was the perfect day out on the river! Enough room for me, my boyfriend and the cooler, we set out for an easy float on the sturdy raft. You have to pay attention and use the paddles quite a bit to center the boat as you float down, but it...continued

We had a great time on this trip. The river is very shallow right now. No worry that we would flip out or capsize. My children, 12 and 7, loved it!
