Embark on a unique tour of California Wine Country! Hop in a kayak for a full tour along the warm, clean Russian River in Healdsburg. The tour guide will take you through a beautiful scenic route and point out native wildlife while you paddle leisurely through the calm waters. The tour includes one- or two-person kayaks, necessary equipment, safety lesson and lunch.
After a short instruction and safety talk at Memorial Beach, your guide will launch you into the Russian River and share information about the local history of the Healdsburg area. As you paddle, spot local wildlife such as snowy egrets and blue herons, and enjoy the picturesque scenery and surrounding flora. The tour covers approximately 9 miles (14 km), and along the way, stop at a small riverside beach for a picnic lunch and a quick dip in the water. The kayak tour concludes at Wholer Bridge, one of the oldest bridges in the Russian River Valley, where a driver will drive you back to the original departure point.
