Sonoma Redwoods Hike and Coastal Kayaking Tour

    What to Expect
    We provide the transportation from our central meeting location in Santa Rosa, driving through the scenic Russian River Valley and down iconic Highway 1. Spend the morning strolling along the edge of the Sonoma Coast watching the crashing waves and then take a quick shuttle out to Jenner for lunch at our favorite riverside cafe before hopping in a kayak and exploring the amazing area where the River hits the Coast. Keep your eyes open for seals, osprey, pelicans, and river otters all while you paddle the gentle waters of Jenner. Walk the beach and watch crashing waves in one of Sonoma County's most beautiful settings. While on the beach look for the rare treat of a migrating whale spout or some of our resident bald eagles. Please let us know if you require hotel/pickup and dropoff or have any dietary or physical restrictions.

    Came out to Cali to find myself and connect with myself and Mother Earth and find what I love who I am and this tour was the perfect way to end my trip. Eric spent his Sunday morning with me sharing all his knowledge of the redwoods and the coast and I was beyond blown away !

    Our tour was amazing. We started with a hike through the Redwoods and then kayaked on the Russian River. Erik is very informative and happy to share his vast knowledge of the outdoors. The tour through the Redwoods was incredible and the kayaking with the seals was so much fun.
