My daughter and I took the skills clinic and Russian River Tour with Bill and John. They are incredibly patient and kind - a great beginner's experience. I'm hooked and am going back for more next weekend.

My husband, 12 year old daughter and I took the SUP intro class with Rubicon and had a wonderful time. The river was beautiful and Bill and Arlene were fantastic! There was just the right balance of instruction and adventure. We will definitely have more trips with Rubicon.

I just got home from an awesome SUP trip with Rubicon-and the best part (besides the wonderful instruction from Arline!) was getting over a less than ideal experience from an introductory trip with another business.... if you're going to pick up this sport, you might as well learn from the best...it was beautiful on the Russian River and my confidence...

This weekend, we celebrated a birthday by taking a two day rafting adventure under the leadership of Rubicon Adventures. As directed, we arrived at Lotus Campsite on Friday, set up camp, and went to sleep. The next morning we were awoken by the smell of fresh coffee! Our guides, Greg Israel and his amigo Carl, had prepared us a breakfast... More

I had an excellent experience with Rubicon Adventures. The SUP lesson was very comprehensive , and I felt well prepared for the adventure. John is an outstanding teacher. He has a wonderful way with making people feel confident, and at ease. The snacks were perfect, and the scenery was off the charts beautiful. This is a terrific outing for families,... More

I have been on numerous rafting trips with this company and it is incredible. They take care of everything from organizing the camping site to fabulous meals on and off the river. They have been taking people on trips for at least 25 years ,if not more, and it shows. What a wonderful way to spend time with your friends... More

Rubicon Rafting company is one of a kind. My family and I have gone rafting with Bill and his "crew" for the past 7 years and each time it is fantastic. From the beginning you know you are in very professional and experienced hands. I love the fact that once we sign up everything is taken care of. We show... More

I have enjoyed many river trips with Rubicon and never had a negative one. Bill Mashek and his guides are top-notch and know what they are doing. Enjoyment is intrinsic, emphasized, and safety paramount. The extra attention to details is immediately apparent during the initial "safety talk" covering the important aspects of whitewater rafting. The "river food" is high quality,... More
