We had a blast and so did our dog! We went in a group of 6 and I was happily surprised to find out that we weren't going to be with a guide. We spent the whole day at our leisure making stops along the way to swim or have a bite to eat. It was...continued

We had a fantastic day from start to finish! Great staff who were helpful, accomodating, informative, relaxed. We really enjoyed ourselves, the paddling and the river. The Russian River may be a " lazy river", but it still took some hard work that...continued

We had so much fun rafting on the river with our dogs! The scenery was beautiful, the employees were friendly, and the equipment was in great shape. The river was low during our trip, so there weren't as many swimming holes as we expected...and...continued

When I surprised my husband with this raft trip on his 60th birthday he was very excited. We were lucky enough to spend one of the hottest days of the year drifting and paddling down the Russian River and it was fantastic! One does not need to...continued

Wonderful way to spend the day! We had a relaxing paddle down the Russian River and were fortunate to see much wildlife such as ospreys, manganzers, quail, egrets, herons, turtles and even a bobcat!

A fun way of spending a day on the Russian River. The inflatable paddle canoes are pretty sturdy and big enough for two people and a dog. The river itself is calm for the most part except for some tricky spots were you have to paddle hard not to...continued

Review from Wendy Moskow

A great time was had by all! Soar thought of everything we needed and took care that we were prepared. I was with two 13 year olds who wanted to take out their own canoe. I am so glad that they were advised against it. The river is long and at...continued

Review from Shannon Maxham

A really good time! An 8 mile canoe trip in inflatable canoes, which surprisingly I enjoyed just as much as regular canoes -- possibly even slightly more. The start is a two block walk from registration (they drive your coolers over for you) and...continued

All information you need to decide if you want this adventure is given. Nothing more, nothing less. As for us we wont probably do this again until after a very long time hehe - river is too long and paddling is too tiring for us newbies. The swing...continued

Review from A Sharp

August 2015, a Friday. Half day family day out with 3 adults and 2 kids aged 3 and 6. Took 2 boats out and floated gently down. Water was slow and shallow, perfect for beginners and those who just want to drift. Boats were very stable and well...continued

Beautiful scenery and so relaxing to just allow the current to take you forward. A great day with the family. It was a bit harder than we thought it would be but certainly doable fun. Would do it again......
