During a self-guided trip, guests paddle in a canoe on the Russian River. Their half-day journey from Rio Lindo to River’s Edge Beach covers about 5 miles in approximately two to three hours of gentle paddling. The stretch of river is home to plenty of wildlife. It also possesses very little current, which makes it ideal for beginners and families. Canoes fit two average-size adults seated, three average-sized adults with one on the floor of the boat, or two average-sized seated adults with two kids on the floor of the boat. Check out the website for weight limits and seating suggestions.

River's Edge Kayak & Canoe Trips

River's Edge Kayak & Canoe Trips' owner Lollie Mercer likes to joke about being in the business of curing nature-deficiency disorder. It's certainly true that sunlight and exercise provide the body with a whole host of benefits, and Lollie's customers get plenty of those riding the riffles of the Russian River. She and her staff offer a selection of single and double kayaks, as well as canoes. Self-guided groups embark on two- to three-hour trips where they navigate Class I+ rapids. When the water calms, they can view the abundant wildlife along the river's banks, including osprey, eagles, otters, and turtles. Eventually, groups land at River's Edge Beach, where Lollie and her crew collect gear and guests reunite with their less-awesome land-based vehicles.

Customer Reviews

The staff was awesome and it was the most enjoyable day. The river was so beautiful and clean. Everyone that operates or lives on it take pride in it and keeps it pristine. I was VERY impressed and thankful for their watchful stewardship of this natural resource.
