  • Set out on a fun and smooth fully-guided kayak adventure as you paddle along the gorgeous Russian River. Its warm, fresh waters along with multiple swimming holes and sunny beaches make it the perfect spot to explore.

    Meet up with your guide in charming downtown Healdsburg, then head to the river for a quick safety briefing plus tips on how to paddle and steer your kayak. Once you’re ready, hop into the kayak and push off from the banks.

    Float along at an easy pace, navigating between tight squeezes and vast expanses of water on this iconic California waterway. Take in the stunning scenery as you paddle by, admiring rolling hills and sun-soaked vineyards. Hone your paddling skills on gentle Class I rapids where smaller streams join the river. And keep your eyes peeled for local wildlife like egrets and herons or look for turtles and otters sunning themselves on the banks.

    Steer your kayak toward the shore and dry off as you enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch, featuring artisan sandwiches, pasta salad, local fruits and veggies, plus a dessert before hopping back into the kayak for a final paddle downstream to Wohler Bridge.

    Make a splash with this unforgettable Russian River Kayak Tour!
