Canoe Trips - $75/Canoe
Burke's provides your canoe, paddles, and life jackets for the day for a total of just $75.00 per canoe. Beginning at Burke's near Forestville, you paddle leisurely down-stream to the resort town of Guerneville. This is a gorgeous ten mile trip through redwoods, mountains and warm sunny beaches. The wildlife on the Russian River is spectacular. You can comfortably do this trip in approximately 3 ½ hours, actual canoeing time. However, most people picnic, swim, sunbath, etc. and are usually out close to 4 or 5 hours. Multi-day trips are also available.
SORRY, NO DOGS ALLOWED
