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.
