Russian River Adventure in Inflatable Canoe 2012


From the issue All the Light Moves

Grab a swimsuit, sunscreen, and some friends who like inflatable fun: Russian River Adventures has the best family-friendly (and dog-friendly!) boat for your summer float. Their signature SOAR inflatable canoes are so plush and comfy it’s like cruising in a Cadillac. They’ll set you up with everything you need, and send you down a gloriously remote 9-mile or 4-mile section of the Russian River less traveled. Kick back for a few hours, coasting by redwoods and vineyards while spying birds and other wildlife on this easy, crowd-free river. Nose up to shore for a picnic: do your best Tarzan on the rope swing, and splash around in the pristine swimming holes. At the end of the float, Russian River Adventures will be there to shuttle everyone back to the car–wet mutt included. It's time to hit the water on Northern California’s most cushy ride! Altogether now: "Row, row, row your boat…."

NEW! Can’t spend a full day on the river? Russian River Adventures has launched a brand new, half-day paddle. (Dogs only permitted on the full-day, 9-mile paddle.)
