What You'll Get
Canoeing is a great way to reconnect with Mother Nature’s picturesque scenery and unreliable dial-up Internet. Rejoin the wild interface with today’s Groupon to River’s Edge Kayak & Canoe Trips in Healdsburg. Choose between the following options:
- For $59, you get a river-trip gift package, valid on weekdays (up to a $125 value).
- For $59, you get a river-trip gift package, valid on weekends (up to a $125 value). <p>
Each package includes:
- A half- or full-day self-guided trip with canoe rental (up to a $90 value)
- One ice chest
- Waterproof camera
- One waterproof dry-bag
- Two drink koozies

River’s Edge outfits explorers for full- or half-day canoeing expeditions along the picturesque Russian River. In water-faring steeds capable of carrying up to three adults, paddlers travel up to 16 miles in the course of 3–6 hours, all while negotiating obstacles such as rapids, boulders, and otter condominiums. Beginners may opt for a half-day trip, while all full-day travelers should have some prior experience navigating moving water, maneuvering through tight turns, and honking their way through log-jams. Packages also help to keep food and drinks dry and chilled inside of a waterproof dry-bag, an ice chest, and beverage-snuggling koozies.

About 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.
