We loved this trip! It was our first time on the Russian River and found it very mellow with enough variety to keep us interested such as a few small currents. We are calm water kayakers so this was perfect for us. The lunch was delicious and we highly recommend Jillian!

A beautiful time on the Russian River. This tour is the perfect day out, our guide took care of EVERYTHING for us, we just had to show up and start paddling. Jillian took outstanding care of us and was super knowledgeable and fun. Highly recommended.

We had a private tour on the Jenner Coast with Craig. He was friendly and knowledgeable. The trip was absolutely beautiful and the lunch was magnificent. We saw hundreds of harbor seals swimming and sunning on the beach. It was a great workout but luckily the winds were quite calm. Would highly recommend and would certainly do it again!

We had a great time, our guide was fabulous! The day was clear and warm, the Russian River is so picturesque in the fall. I will definitely come back. Thank you, well worth the price.
