Fun day on the river. Nice way to cool off during a heat wave.

Review from Reva

Had a great day (did the whole day trip) canoeing on the river. This group is incredibly well organized, they prepare you well, giving you a waterproof bag for your stuff (food, clothes etc.), a garbage bag, and even a baggie so you can take car...continued

Review from Sandy Forshee-Merritt

I had fun, but my partner HATED it. It is VERY hard to paddle. They should call it kayaking, because that is WHAT IT IS, and unless you have experience it is very hard to navigate the canoe. There is virtually no current so you're expected to...continued

Review from lois

It was great. An easy float with a little paddling. Very quiet, lots of water fowl. I followed staff suggestions paddling and did not tip. Pretty good since I didn't paddle a canoe in many years. The dog loved the water

Review from Holly's Goldstar

It was very nice and the people running it were nice, helpful and considerate. The river trip was a little long for our taste - guess I am a little out of shape for paddling that far. But well worth it. The kids loved it!

Review from Cindi

Overall we had a good time.

Pros: We were able to have a safe and fun boating day with a 2-yr-old. The first 3/4 of the trip was beautiful, fun and relaxing.

Cons: LOTS of paddling at the end. It started feeling less like a vacation and...continued

Review from Ranka

Russian River is beautiful! I took my two boys 9 and 10 for the day trip and all 3 of us enjoyed it. Boys helped paddling but in the end it was me who did most of the work. We stopped several times to swim and eat. Kids were disappointed not to...continued

Review from Rassors

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 great day. It's a really easy river, the people are super friendly and accommodating even when we were late, the boats are great and I love that they were so open to having dogs.

Review from Lauline

We had a fantastic time gliding down the river. It is definitely a bit of work paddling, but it is well worth it. You might read up a bit on paddling as the steering was a bit challenging for us (novices!). We had a great time, very relaxing. ...continued

Review from Steph Lauck

We had a wonderful time. I needed 7 tickets but Goldstar only had 6 for that date. When I told the owner that I needed another one he was so generous and sold me an extra one for the cheaper Goldstar price. My only criticism is that there was very...continued

Review from Tim

Well run and very friendly staff. Extra courteous service getting us back to starting point after trip. The dog loved it. Only negative was the last couple of miles require constant paddle - especially if your wife isn't!

Review from Goldstar Member

Bring lots of sunscreen! It was great fun for us and our dogs! The day was a bit cold and foggy but the river was beautiful, we saw turtles, fish, and osprey, and hawks. My dog had a great time swimming and riding in the "boat". Long day and...continued
