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".

Our check-in location is at

Due to a building moratorium, we are in a cute semi-permanent gazebo, across the street from Cafe Aquatica. Our main fleet is moored across the street, on the water at our launch site, next to the State Parks Visitor Center.

Reservations are required:  We individually prep each of our 50 seats, but do not guide tours or rent for over 16 seats at a time. This is a protected wildlife nursery and the recreational activities are managed by permit.

(Schools, scouts and other youth or educational groups have some exceptions). Same day walk up reservations happen daily and often you are on the water quickly. On busy weekends it could be an hour wait or even longer for larger groups or during the peak of summer days.


Our Rural Location Has Limited Internet and Cell Service:  Please call our landline for fastest service.


This "Landline" cannot accept texts.


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.

Many rural and coastal towns have no other "reliable" communication infrastructure. Even Star Link degrades and falls during some of our weather. This leaves us no other option to maintain reservation and emergency service communications than "Plain Old Telephone Service" (POTS)

For One Staff Days: We all have a two way radio. A "Voice Activated" one is at our check in and outfitting location. Simply speak directly to it and we will hear you. It may take a few moments to respond if we are wrestling kayaks across the street on the water.


We also accept same day walk up reservations and often we can quickly start outfitting. On busy weekends it could be an hour wait or longer for larger groups.

Private Guided Tours must be reserved no later than 72 hours in advance with a 4 person minimum. Our large school and scout groups are scheduled months in advance. Look for our discounted "Join our Groups" dates when we have a guide scheduled for Community education tours that "singles" can also join..


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, who may not have reliable cell reception.

Late Fall into Spring:

We want to be open Thursdays though Mondays and may open Tuesday and Wednesday for Advanced Reservations. If we have no reservations for Monday or Thursday, we may close especially if the weather is not great. We want to be open, so please reserve a few days in advance. With no reservations, our staff will have already made other employment plans, outside of the area for those days,


Summer, Holidays, and Heat Waves:

We try to open stay open daily, weather and water permitting., and for School Break Weeks or Heat Waves throughout the year.

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.
