Stand Up Paddleboard Sonoma County, Whitewater Rafting. Rubicon Adventures believes in direct passenger participation in the river adventure. River trips are a great fun way to access wilderness and to teach and challenge you with a new experience. Anyone in reasonably good physical condition will enjoy a whitewater voyage. There is very little "hard" work, especially when many hands are involved. We offer whitewater rafting trips on the American River, Trinity River, Eel River and Cache Creek.New for 2012:Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP)trips on the Russian River. Introduction: Paddle Board 101. We spend 1/2 day learning about paddle board, skill development, strokes, turns, safety and rescue. and a 2 hour paddle on the verdant waters near Wohler Bridge on the Russian River. Our instructors are ACA trained, WSUPA certified and expert SUP paddlers/surfers.New for 2013: Muli-Sport Adventures in Belize including Sea Kayaking, SUP and Diving.
