Russian River Adventures is the way to go in this hot climate. We took this mella Yella cruise at a slow rate (about 5.5 hours) You do have to paddle especially in head winds but nothing to strenuous. We originally signed up for the half-day but dogs are not allowed so we opted for the full day, 9 miles. They offer a dry bag for sensitive material like cell phones. We clipped them to the life jackets just in case. Didn't want the keys drowning! I can't say enough about how clean and clear the water was, the sound of the trees and wildlife all around. You could see big fish at the bottom of the deep portions of the river. Also, the owner of Russian River Adventures did a great safety and awareness speech before we took off for our adventure.
Things to remember:
River Shoes, Sunblock, Drinks & Snacks, Beach Ball, Visor, Kids and Dogs!
