My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this Kayaking tour. Erik is very personable and I agree with my wife's words, "It was like kayaking with an old friend." Erik let us go at our own pace and his knowledge of the area and of the wildlife greatly enhanced our experience. The scenery was beautiful and it was just a gorgeous day to be on the water. I highly recommend this to young and old alike, experienced or first time kayaker. Thanks Erik for an awesome time!

We had the BEST EXPERIENCE kayaking with Erik, who is the sweetest California dude with a matching easy-going, no worries attitude. My 8 (almost 9 year old daughter), my 60-something cousin and I went out with Erik on a lovely, slow paced journey. Erik has a wealth of very interesting information about the Russian River, and Jenner, and beyond. The water was so calm. There was lots of wildlife to see, and of course, Erik was fully versed in all the creatures on land and in the water. Our 3 hour adventure was so beautiful, peaceful and so much fun. I highly recommend booking a trip with this company. Whether you're a seasoned kayaker or you've never sat in a kayak, this is the trip for you. Wear water shoes and have a windbreaker if you tend to get chilly easily, like me!

About This Deal


Times have been tough! As Sonoma County reopens we believe it is more important than ever to get outside and get moving! So... Let us show you the gorgeous and rugged Sonoma Coast! We meet and begin kayaking in the small seaside town of Jenner. After a brief safety talk and paddling instruction, we hit the water and explore the beautiful Russian River where it joins the Pacific Ocean. Your guide will enthusiastically discuss the area's history, wildlife, landscape, seasons, and whatever else you can possibly think of. Questions are highly appreciated and looked forward to by our staff. The paddling is gentle and we keep our eyes open for a variety of wildlife including river otters, pelicans, osprey, and curious harbor seals. We will land on the beach and check out the ocean before getting back in the boats and heading back to Jenner. Your guide can offer great recommendations for other beaches and options in the area for you to continue your day of adventure. All gear used by guests is sanitized by our staff after every tour and social distancing will be respectfully asked for if there are multiple groups on the same tour. Please contact us for any Covid-19 questions.
