Trip #1, Rio (Class I)

Canoe or Double Kayak $90 | Single Kayak $45
 

Rio Lindo To Riverís Edge Beach In Healdsburg
Check In Weekends: 10:30 am - 1:00 pm

Check In Weekdays: 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Check In on weekdays can be earlier upon request

Length is 5 miles, with 2-3 hours casual paddle time. A perfect choice for families with younger children, or those who want to arrive later for more leisurely day. Very scenic with a little less current, yet plenty of wildlife and places to swim and play. The last mile and a half of this section is backed up by the Memorial Beach Dam, so expect a  less current and a little more time at the end of your run. The trip ends at Riverís Edge Beach...where there is an attendant and various services for your convenience. Class I + current. 

Reservation Recommended

Trip #2, Alex (Class I - II) - 24 Hour Reservation Required

Canoe or Double Kayak $110 | Single Kayak $55
 

Alexander Valley Campground To Rio Lindo or To Riverís Edge Beach In Healdsburg.
Not for beginners.
Check In between 8:30 - 9:30 am (9 - 9:30 am Weekdays)

The Alex trip is 11 or 16 miles with a paddle time of 4-6 hours. This trip is on a remote section of the river that is not easily accessible. Therefore, you will experience 11 miles of unspoiled wilderness with an abundance of wildlife including a pair of nesting bald eagles. This is considered a nature trip, not a party run.
 
Summer/Fall
 

This trip is not for beginners, small children the physically challenged. You will be negotiating and navigating through current and around obstacles in some places. You and your party will need to have basic boat control skills. Summer and Fall is a little less challenging than spring flow but still somewhat technical in a few places. You need to have the agility and ability to self rescue, including a wedged or "wrapped" boat. There is the potential to flip or wrap. If you lose your paddle or wrap your boat there is no public access for us to assist you unless there is a medical emergency.
 
Spring
 

This trip is not for beginners, small children or the physically challenged. You will be navigating and negotiating around obstacles and through current. You and your party will need basic boat control skills in almost class II water. That means everyone has had experience in moving water, with tight turns in boat eating log jams. Everyone must have a basic understanding of hydrology and how even mild current can be unsafe. There is a potential to flip and wrap your boat, so you will need the ability and agility to self rescue, including a wedged or wrapped boat. If you lose a paddle or your boats, there is no public access for us to assist you unless there is a medical emergency.
