Our second time for my husband and I plus our 12 yr old grand daughter and our 2 dogs. We loved it. Our dogs aren't water dogs but loved being with us. The staff is knowledgeable and gives great advise. We picked up our picnic lunch right next...continued

Review from Mica

Overall, I really enjoyed this trip. There was more paddling than I had anticipated but it was good exercise. Definitely a nature experience with great viewing of egrets. Manuvering was a little difficult. Low hanging branches and down trees on...continued

Review from Brad Canfield

Russian River Adventures is a great place for a day outing, and the staff is even better. We've been twice now with a party of 6 and a party of 7 (plus our dogs). We plan on going again in a few weeks. Great time with the family.

The canoes were very heavy and difficult to navigate. We had children and adults. At times it was difficult to get the canoe moving. We were not aware of a half day trip but I see there is one offered now. There should be some checkpoints so if...continued

The event was better than I expected. I would encourage if you would like a family outing for the day that was reasonable priced this is the event. Saw lots of wildlife and had a great time swimming in the river. Bring Sun Screen and a hat as...continued

Review from Chie Treagus

The program was well coordinated, and the people were friendly. I wish I had learned how to paddle prior to the trip. We were given a quick 15-minute overview before we launched, but maneuvering the rubber canoe was trickier than I thought. Other...continued

Review from Matthew Fassberg

The service is pretty straight forward. They provide a kayak and pick-up at the other end of your trip. The boats were fine The trip was slightly longer than I would have enjoyed, mostly due to headwinds that made then end of the journey slow...continued

The trip was overall a very good experience for the entire group even with all different canoeing abilities. Learning how to control was finally achieved before the end of the trip. Thanks for a fun time!

Review from Karen

This was a fantastic day trip for our family (2 adults, 1 13 yr old, 1 12 yr old and 1 8 yr old). We stopped lots of times to swim so the trip took us 7 hours. Next time we go, we will skip all the little stops and wait until we reach the big...continued

Review from Barbara Bourke

This was advertised as a 3 hour trip. We stopped for 1/2 hour and finished in 6 1/2 hours. Way too long. Other paddlers on the river agreed that it was much more difficult than expected. The final 2 hours were completely unecessary and ruined the...continued

This was one awesome weekend adventure for our family. We came prepared (thanks to all the tips provided by the members) and had a blast. It is scenic, serene and beautiful at the same time as being quite the work out - basically the full...continued

Trip was overall fun. Staff was low key, supportive, and fun. Clear and to the point. They were great. Bringing the dog was super plus. The full day trip, for us was a bit longer that we wished. You need to row a lot, if you want to get to the end...continued
