River trips are a great fun way to access wilderness and to teach and challenge you with a new experience. Anyone in reasonably good physical condition will enjoy a whitewater voyage.

We offer whitewater rafting trips on the American River, Trinity River, Eel River and Cache Creek.New for 2012:Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP)trips on the Russian River. Introduction: Paddle Board 101. We spend 1/2 day learning about paddle board, skill development, strokes, turns, safety and rescue. and a 2 hour paddle on the verdant waters near Wohler Bridge on the Russian River.

I was so impressed with my first experience with Bill and John that I went back the next week and worked with Arlene and will be going again. They were so amazing - great instructors, with a great sense of humor. You can tell they love what they do. I am hooked and the folks at Rubicon are the best!

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.

Rubicon is the best!! I have done a lot of rivers throughout the nation, but our experience on the American river was the best ever and predominantly because of how well everything went and our incredible guides, Rhody and Mr. Bill! Be sure to ask for one of them because that is what made this white water experience better than... More

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

We put-in at Lotus and spent a fabulous day on the river with an outstanding guide who really knew the river. This was my first real rafting experience (everything I had done prior was more of a float) and I am so glad we had someone who not only knew what they were doing, but understood the river and understood...

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
