COVID-19 Update: Yes! Russian River Adventures are open for their 20th year and inviting back adventurers on their all-day excursions. Changes have been made this year to keep guests and staff safe. Check out the message from owner, Larry Laba, on the home page of Russian River Adventures.com for updates.
Russian River Adventures offers canoe rentals on the most secluded section of Russian River. The company's custom-designed SOAR inflatable canoes are stable enough for Fido and kids, too.
The full day trip has it all: Great current, long pools offering amazing reflections, clear and clean swimming holes, a great rope swing, and amazing birds and wildlife! Pack a picnic lunch and your favorite beverages and set off down the Russian River in your comfortable and stable SOAR Inflatable canoe.
This is the dog-friendly section where your dog is free to swim and romp all along the way. Since 2003, thousands of dogs have joined their owners on one of the most fun day outings that any dog can ever have. SOAR canoes are so stable that even the biggest dogs can't tip them over. Our trip is guaranteed to tire even the most energetic of dogs!
Full day trips depart from Healdsburg; take-out is 8.5 miles down river, with shuttle service available at $40 per car. Shuttles for your personal kayaks or canoes available. Rentals are available daily in summer, weekends and holidays through October. Advance reservations required.
