How It Works...

Advance reservations are highly recommended to secure the right equipment for your adventure. Please call or email us ahead to make your reservation for a particular date and time with the number and type of boats appropriate for your party.

On your reservation day, arrive at our Mill Bend launch site a few minutes before your reservation time to register, pay by cash, check or major credit card, select dry bags for your gear and provisions and be fitted in life jackets. We have PFD’s (life vests) to fit approximately age 2 years on up, as well as sizes for adults to 3XL. For smaller children, or if your older child has his/her own pfd, we recommend you bring it, as young children are more comfortable in their own, familiar gear.

Adventure Rents transports all boats and gear to the launch location. Our staff will assist you in stowing gear in your boat(s), and are happy to give basic instruction upon request. Our staff is knowledgeable about the Gualala River and current conditions and will answer any questions you may have. We do the work, you have the fun!

Having completed your paddling adventure, when you return to the launch/take-out beach if staff is not available, please pull the boats up well onto the beach to prevent them from drifting off. Place your paddles by the boats, unpack your drybags of personal belongings and trash (place in bag provided at site), and put the drybags & PFD's in your boat. We know when you are expected from your rental form, so we’ll be back to pick up boats and gear. If you are the last customers of the day, please swing the pipe gate closed behind you when you leave.
