Top notch operation. They are so accommodating. We loved every minute of it. The sunglass holders, ice chests for lend, dry bags for lend, water bottles. They offer it all! Thank you for your smiling faces, great kayaks (molded back support is awesome), and great communication is so much appreciated. We will be back! We really loved this quiet part of the river. Saw deer in the river, egrets, blue heron, vultures. Get your sandwiches across the street before check-in and eat along the journey. Get a Wicked Slush afterward. Great weekend!

We had a bumpy start to the kayaking trip. First, although the company had a large area in front of their meeting point, you need to park off property and walk with all your stuff across a bridge to get started. Once there, you board a communal shuttle and head up quite a bit BUT that’s not all! The shuttle has to arrive at a private dirt road, manually open and close a gate and off-road to the launch spot. But that’s not all! You then need to walk about 500 ft on a dirt path to get to the launching point. Once on the water, it’s quite beautiful. Very green and very peaceful. We had water the entire float down but some spots are very shallow. Remember your water shoes as it’s either gravelly or mossy. We really enjoyed the first hour and then the wind picked up in the wrong direction and made kayaking back really long and hard! The kids got quite tired. It’s also very expensive so if you’re traveling with kids, maybe just get a few kayaks locally and putter around instead of this long excursion.

Thank you for the review! We try to give every guest a detailed description of what lies ahead of their Rio trip, and we appreciate your description. We do offer day use spots on our beach where you are able to rent kayaks & SUP's by the hour, which the kids might enjoy next time. We hope to see you at the river again soon!

We went on the 5 mile paddle-float with our 4 grandchildren (14, 12, 8, 6) and had a marvelous time. The information about the Russian River was spot-on. We did not see otters as hoped (we were behind some other groups and the kids were pretty noisy) but we did see an Egret catch a fish, an Osprey and several Kites, Vultures. Very worthwhile. The only thing that loses them a point is the directions. They say, "Don't try to follow Google Maps - they are not accurate." But they don't give (or we couldn't find) any better ones, so we did get lost. They quickly directed us after we called, but a simple instruction would have been helpful. Great staff!

Beautiful, peaceful kayaking down the Russian River. We saw deer, otters, turtles and lots of birds! We ordered lunch ahead of time at the local market and brought a small ice chest to keep it cool. We stopped midway for lunch on picnic tables - it was perfect. My wife and I had a two-seater kayak, and the water level is a bit low so I got out and steered us over the rocks several times. But the water temperature was great so it wasn't an issue at all - it actually added to the fun. I think if we had separate kayaks we probably wouldn't have gotten stuck - but the weight of two people was just enough to slow us down! Again, it wasn't an issue. We had a fantastic time!

Really relaxing kayaking trip down the Russian River with beautiful views and wildlife. If you are in the area for just a few days this is a great trip to go on. Staff were friendly, helpful and also very clear about the conditions of the river and how that would affect your experience.
