    Rubicon guides are well compensated and do not expect tips. However, it is customary in this industry to “tip” guides, especially if you feel your guide has contributed substantially towards making your trip exceptional.

    What Our Customers Are Saying About Their Rubicon Adventure

    Corey was very outgoing, friendly, and energetic guide. We had a great time learning the paddle technique and relaxing on the river and even jamming out to some tunes on the boards. We will definitely be back again!
    – Rich Schuster

    Thanks Greg to you and your crew! Our group of 11 had an experience we will not forget. The food was delicious too!

    Another fantastic paddle with Rubicon.
    – Andrea

    If you want to have a ton of fun, see beautiful stretches of the Russian River, and learn a lot about SUPing, join Bill Mashek and the crew at Rubicon Adventures.

    Really had a great time on the American River- even Satan’s Cesspool. Thanks Eric for being so quick to pull me back in the boat
    – Julie Cokeley

    Amazing afternoon of SUP.
    We took a tour with Bill from Wohler Bridge with my two boys 8 & 10 years old. Bill is great with the kids and took a lot of time to run…
    – SamMaxLeo

    Bill is the best!
    Going down river on a paddle is always a fabulous trip – after the first time, it’s easier to handle and more fun than a kayak or canoe.
