SF Side Trip: Paddle the Beautiful Russian River in Inflatable Canoes.
Here’s a great way to tour Sonoma for the day — paddle down the Russian River in an inflatable canoe. Take the family, take the dog, or just take it easy and roll down the river with your feet up over the tubes … all for half the price.
This eco-adventure takes place along the most secluded section of the Russian River, starting in Healdsburg, in Sonoma County. You can stop at swimming holes along the way and play on rope swings, or keep an eye out for owls, egrets, heron, osprey, kingfisher and ducks.
Here’s what’s included:
- A SOAR inflatable canoe
- Two paddles
- Life jackets for all passengers
- One dry bag per canoe to keep personal articles dry
- Return shuttle from Wohler Bridge ending point to your car
