Always a fun option with a bunch of friends. We bought sandwiches and beer and floated for a few hours on the half-day option. would totally do again!

Really easy trip. We were able to have one adult and two kids per boat, which was great for me and my friend. We were doing it to celebrate summer with our recent graduates (from 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grades.) The staff was very helpful and the trip had tiny fast parts to make us feel triumphant!

This canoe trip from Healdsburg was so much fun!

From the moment you park there are people ready and willing to help you with your bags and point out where to check in, all with a smile and some jokes (helpful on an early morning trip). The canoes are great, though at times a bit tiring to paddle, and have plenty of room for several bags and a cooler - the cooler is a must.

We had a blast switching off between paddling, drinking wine, and hanging out with our fellow canoers. The weather was overcast at first, but when the sun broke through we ditched our sweaters for bathing suits and took plenty of breaks to just float and soak up some sun.

Would definitely recommend this canoe trip!

I had so much fun! I'm not an outdoorsy-type but it was a blast. Calm water with tiny pockets of faster currents to keep it interesting. The instructor gave good tips on the best way to navigate the river, how to steer, paddle etc. He also gave tips on good places to go ashore and climb out for some swimming--so bring a swimsuit. The water is refreshing; I wish I had thought to wear one.

You don't have to be an Olympic rower to enjoy this tour. I'm was a miserable but enthusiastic captain and while our boat did donuts in the water and ran aground into bushes and rocks, we were having fun and constantly laughing. There's a little shop before you set out in case you forgot your sunscreen or hat (so recommended). Also, wear your flip-flops for sloshing around in the water.

This was a great tour for this beginner/city girl and fun way to explore wine country without the wine. :)

Great time coasting down the Russian River. It wasn't difficult to navigate (so don't be afraid if you've never done something like this before!) and the canoes were very sturdy. The instructor was professional and explained everything in detail before we took to the water. The good thing is that you aren't at a set pace; you can take a cooler with drinks and food, stop to swim or paddle as fast as you like!

Amazing day out on Russian River! I did the half day trip and it was a really nice experience. Check-in was super easy and the briefing before we set off was informative. The stretch of the Russian River that we canoed down was beautiful - no buildings really, just great scenery, and super easy for paddling. There was plenty of space in the canoe for a cooler and lots of great spots to stop at along the way. Great for people of all ages!

Fun day on the Russian River! The canoes were easy to maneuver and the views were beautiful. Before the trip, the guide gave us an overview of some basic canoe information so that was nice to learn before heading out on the water. I would highly recommend this trip!
