Imagine seeing harbor seals, blue herons and an ancient singing stone in one day. Depending on the season and adventure you might see gray whales, white pelicans or bald eagles. In late summer, bioluminescent plankton attach to the fish and you can watch fish dart like fireworks under your kayak. Where does all this wonder occur? It is where the river meets the waves, and WaterTreks EcoTours knows the special spots. Trained guides share Russian River Estuary history, such as Penny Island’s dairy or the Skywatcher, a Kashaya Pomo singing stone. Descended from a long line of Kashaya who live in the area, owner Suki Waters herself spent part of her childhood on the river and coast, learning to fish, harvest seaweed and how to identify the wildlife, flora and fauna of the estuary.

WaterTrek’s Living Classrooms project helps students of all ages discover science and history firsthand. Open seven days a week, you will find their booth across from Café Aquatica in Jenner. Kayak rentals also available daily. WaterTreks runs year ‘round, so call them today to book your adventure!
