There’s something magical about the Big River estuary near Mendocino—and something ingenious about the “canine cruiser” that transports two- and four-legged visitors down the calm and inky river to the sea. Catch A Canoe & Bicycles Too, which has been outfitting paddlers on an 8.3-mile section of the river since 1972, added the cruiser to its fleet of handmade redwood watercraft several years ago. more »

Liquid Fusion Kayaking specializes in kayaking excursions—from mild to wild—on the serene Noyo River estuary and along the Mendocino coast. All ages will be delighted by a beginner-level paddle on the placid Noyo, where curious harbor seals, quirky river otters, the occasional sea lion and many species of coastal birds are highlights. Kayak rentals start at $30 for two hours, and a $5 charge for four-legged companions includes a canine flotation device. While dogs are welcome on these and other LFK excursions, the company cautions that not all dogs make good paddling pals.

Instinct can prompt even the best behaved Buddy to jump out and swim toward land‚ a serious problem if you’re on a river and have current to contend with. Dogs vary in temperament and personality as much as humans, and each individual will respond differently to this new adventure. Some guidelines . . .  more »
