The River is calling. Isn't it time you listen?
Riverfront Park Tour
($78 per person)
For the beginner and intermediate paddler
Two person minimum.
After arriving at Riverfront Park on East Side Road in Windsor, you are greeted and checked in by your guide. Paddlers then take a short hike out to a levee that divides the beautiful and serene lake Benoist from the Russian River (optional courtesy shuttle). We work our way down a narrow trail to a small beach. There we find our awaiting boards. After a brief orientation, all are fitted with life vests, leashes, and paddles. As we enter the water, we start out very slow until you can paddle with comfort and confidence. When ready, we begin our tour on the majestic Russian River, gliding along with only the sound of our paddles gently breaking the water's surface. Soon the water begins its magical embrace, taking you on a peaceful journey through a part of Sonoma County you never dreamed existed. You soon discover the vantage point from atop a paddle board allows you to look down into the river, easily spotting fish and other aquatic creatures. Free to get close to either shore line, you scan the rich riparian habitat for birds and other wildlife.
Healdsburg to Windsor
($88 per person)
For the intermediate and experienced paddler.
Two person minimum.
You are greeted by your guide at Riverfront Park on Eastside Road just outside of the town of Windsor. Paddlers then hop in the courtesy shuttle and take a short ride to Healdsburg veterans memorial Beach. Upon our arrival, you and your guide follow a narrow road to the launch site. After unloading the boards and suiting up, your guide gives a brief safety talk and an overview about current river conditions. When entering the water, paddlers are kept out of the direct current until everyone is comfortable and ready. You begin your tour slowly and methodically, staying on your knees for a time, letting the river guide you through the first set of ripples and turns. Rising to your feet, paddlers will experience more than six miles of calm serenity, interspersed with moments of rapid concentration as you steer your board through deep eddies and narrow channels. With an abundance of wildlife, and many small inviting beaches, paddlers soon discover a hidden world right in the middle of Wine Country.
