Contact And Find Us
Our main location is nestled amongst the hills of the Russian River valley where the river waters join the Pacific Ocean, in Sonoma County California.
This is the Managed Marine Recreation Area in the small village of "Jenner by the Sea".
When arriving onsite:
We have a two way radio at our check in and outfitting location to contact our staff at the water.
Our main fleet is moored across the street, on the water at our launch site, next to the State Parks Visitor Center.
Our Rural Location Has Very Limited Internet:
Expect up to 72 hours for an e-mail response. Please only e-mail for future plans.
Cell phone and internet service is close to "not existent".
Please call our landline for fastest service:
Please leave a message with your phone number so we can call you back.
Reservation calls can come into us 2 or 3 at a time. The third call will not revert to our answering machine. If this happens, please call back.
A number 1 is now required first on all U.S. Landlines.
This is a fairly new change, for calling out.
Our reservations are by landline phone calls.
This line cannot accept texts.
Lifeguard Shortage: We are very short staffed as are many other businesses at this time.
If we don't answer...
We are either across the street at the water's edge helping clients, or it's after hours when calls are forwarded to the cell phone of the next day's staff.
Our messages say either, "we are open onsite" or "you have reached the after hours reservation line".
Please leave a message "With Your Phone Number" so we can call you back.
We check our messages often and continue to take reservations 7 days a week.
We are often not open onsite Tuesday and Wednesday per the staff shortage. We try to open these days in the Summer and for local School Break Weeks or heat waves throughout the year. We will not open for Tuesdays and Wednesdays that have no reservations made in advance. Our staff will have already made other plans for those days, because there were no reservations.
We check calls often, will return your call shortly, and look forward to helping you disconnect from the busyness of life and to reconnect with nature here at our protected marine and wildlife area on the Russian River.

There has never been cable for tv or internet connections. All access to those services are by satellite which is very poor and becomes further disrupted during periods of heavy rain, fog or astronomical events. Therefore, internet and cell coverage are not reliable for communicating with our clients.
Our town has a building moratorium. Our client meet location does not have electricity. The good news is, we share an electrical connection, with another local business, for a wireless handset for our landline phone, our two-way radios, and credit card access.
