Before heading downstream...I would recommend making a few practice 'circles' in the beginning to get used to handling your kayak. These are more difficult to paddle than a canoe! We thought it was harder paddling than what most other reviewers...continued

Excellent trip! Peaceful and relaxing. The river was quiet and beautiful. The best part was swimming along the "canoe" in the cool, clear water. Website and staff were great - good instructions about what to bring, etc. The canoes are flat...continued

Had a great time on the river with my husband. Lots of eagles to see, and other birds too. Water a bit calm for our tastes, but perfect weather and a cooler full of beverages and lunch, made for a nice afternoon. Took us about 3.5 hours to...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'm sure this is a fun great experience for those who know how to paddle a canoe. But to those who have never paddled on a river I suggest you opt for a guide ($120), especially since you are paddling for 8 miles and 4 hours. We (myself,...continued

It was so much fun! The rafts were very sturdy even when our dogs walked up and down the sides. The river was beautiful and peaceful. At the end, it was very convenient to just jump in our car and drive home. We'll be back!

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

The operation was friendly, helpful and gave good instructions. The morning was very overcast so RRAIPC stalled our start time to get the best weather. My boyfriend and enjoyed a leisurely time down the river spotting amazing birdlife, turtles,...continued

The river was a little low, but still a lot of fun. We had our 115 # dog with us and we all loved it. The staff is friendly and helpful. An eight mile section of the river which appears to be unspoiled. We did not see anything but birds,...continued

We coasted along a tranquil stretch of the Russian River, enjoying the sights & sounds of birdlife and surrounding wilderness. We didn't see any houses or party coves on this stretch. This trip is a gem! Lots of swim holes and rocky beaches to...continued

We did this last fall and came back for more. It is great for the dog and relaxing for us. We saw a bald eagle a third of the way in guarding a nest- first time we saw one. Made the trip that much special.

We had a great time even though the weather was crappy. If it would of been a sunny day it would of been even better.

Awesome trip! Our 10-year-old and 6-year-old had a great time. They both did some paddling, but weren't particularly helpful, to be honest (but we let them do it for fun). The river was pretty slow, so it did take paddling to move much. Occasional...continued

Beautiful time on the river! Make sure to put people with longer arms in the back of the canoe. Otherwise, you'll end up zig-zagging since the canoes have no keel.
