Bring your own food - the deli nearby is in a gas station. Do bring beer! It's refreshing and you'll work your arms. We had a great time. Two senior people took a shellacking falling in and scraping up on branches, so also bring bandages. They...continued

Definitely a fun time. Be prepared to get frustrated with your rowing buddy... or accept the fact that no matter how hard you paddle right, your raft will do a 360 to the left on its own. I felt like I was in an episode of the Amazing Race.

Everyone at Russian River Adventures was really friendly and helpful. I was surprised that the water levels were still not too low in this major drought we've been in. Don't wait too late in the season to do this trip because the water and...continued

Great experience! Inflatable canoes are hard to keep straight but once you figure out the steering it's really fun. You can make the 8 mile one way downstream paddling as hard or as easy as you like. Sun can be very hot so reapplying sunscreen is...continued

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

It was a great trip. Russian River Adventures were easy to work with. We were able to enjoy a leisurely and peaceful voyage down the river and our dog LOVED it. I was surprised there was basically no rapids (it's a class 1 max stretch of the river...continued

It was a great day - just one problem... when we got back to our car (a Subaru STI), it had been put into "go fast" mode, had an extra 40 miles on it, and the tank was on empty. It appears that our shuttle drivers couldn't resist the temptation...continued

It was a nice trip.There were everything good: staff, people, weather, river, waves, sun. I just would like to note that an attendant instructor on the water should pay more attention and check situation of rafting group during whole time of the...continued

It was a wonderful experience. Russian River Adventure was very accomodating. Excellent service. They were at the pick up point when we got to the end. We were shuttled back to our car within 15 minutes of arriving. I love the inflatable canoes....continued

It was a wonderful day and yes, it was a little bit harder work than we expected but it was worth it! There were beautiful stops along the way and the terrain changed throughout the ride. Next year I may go a little bit earlier in the season. If...continued

It was about 8+ miles down the Russian river in an inflatable kayak type of thing. It was a lot of fun. Beautiful day. The Russian River is not too cold. The end is the hard part because the current slows way down and with the headwind you have to...continued

It was low key and marvelous. Saw many interesting birds and knocked my husband out of the kayak! Very relaxing.

Jumped into the canoes and we were off!! Plenty of spots to stop and have a picnic without anyone else around. Peaceful, quiet and the river offers you a chance to jump in and cool off. Saw two eagles en route!

Lovely, though a little more exhausting than I thought it would be, maybe just because I haven't been on a canoe much. And we were going against the wind at the end. After the full day we were exhausted and my arms were super sore.

My family of 5... including three children ages 4, 7, 11... loved the trip. The Russian River here was absolutely gorgeous and we stopped multiple times for a swim and for a picnic. The rope swing area was too shallow to swing at this time, but...continued

My wife & I are in our mid 70s and while we were very tired the next day, it was a great way to celebrate my birthday. The folks who work there were very helpful and upbeat. The best thing about the trip is the peacefulness and the wild life. We...continued

Not for the weak or weary. Lots of hard paddling. But a beautiful August day on a beautiful river. I (Mom) did it with my two boys, ages 11 and 14. Two adults or an adult with a strong teenager recommended to get through the end (very little...continued
