Russian River Kayak Tour

Great experience and great guide in Dustin Dalli. Very serene and plenty of wildlife. The lunch at the end is worth the wait.

Thank you for your kind words. That stretch is the quietest and most peaceful between Healdsburg and Guerneville Having an experienced guide is so much better on this stretch of the river pointing out bird life and hazards to watch out for. Lunch is in the Redwood grove and done at the end to be abler to sit at a table in the cool of the redwood grove

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!

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!
