Short Description: Adventure Rents: Redwood Coast Canoes & Kayaks

Long Description: Adventure Rents offers a variety of boats for singles, families and groups of all ages and skill levels. Dogs are welcome, too! Choose from canoes, which hold 2-4 persons and gear, tandem kayaks, and single open-cockpit kayaks. Boat rentals include paddles, life jackets and dry bags. Free instruction is provided to beginning boaters. We offer safe and stable boats for all sizes of individuals including large and/or tall persons. We can also accommodate physically challenged persons on an individual basis. Please call us to discuss your special needs.

We also offer guided trips for groups from a few individuals to large parties. We can coordinate group packages and events for schools, scouts, corporate retreats, weddings, reunions, etc. including daytime paddling trips, team-building regattas and Moonlight Flotillas.

Adventure Rents operates its kayak and canoe livery on the peaceful and pristine Gualala River that forms the boundary between Sonoma and Mendocino Counties in northern California. The Gualala River is backed by thousands of acres of private forest. Unhurried and undeveloped along its entire length, the Gualala River watershed supports an abundance of wildlife, including numerous waterfowl, osprey, mink and river otter, providing a perfect setting for safe, self-guided paddling, past redwood forests, salt marshes and sandy beaches. In summer, the sand at the mouth of the Gualala River builds up naturally until it closes, becoming a natural dam through which the river and ocean filter with the tides. This phenomenon occurs somewhere between mid-May and early July. When the mouth closes, the water backs up for several miles creating an elongated lake with imperceptible current, perfect for novice boaters, and turning the river estuary into a closed lagoon. In late fall, the first major storms open the river mouth for the duration of the rainy season.

How it works at Adventure Rents: Reserve ahead if possible to insure having the right boats and gear for your party. Arrive at our booth in downtown Gualala a few minutes prior to your scheduled time to register and pay, pick up dry bags and fit youngsters in life jackets (if applicable). You will drive to a location near the launch site or if river conditions indicate, we will shuttle your party plus boats and gear to our launch site upriver.

We assist you with launching your boats and provide any instruction to beginning boaters. Rentals start at 2 hr. min up to a full day or overnight (for campground guests). In summer, we are open daily from 9:30 and launch from 10:00 to 4:00 pm, but boats can be on the river until dark. During the spring, fall and winter, boats are available by reservation, weather and river conditions permitting.
