Boating and Paddling

Boat Launches

Developed boat launches are available at Regional Parks in Bodega Bay, on the Russian River, at Spring Lake in Santa Rosa, and at the Hudeman Slough waterway of San Pablo Bay. 


Kayaking, paddleboarding and canoeing are popular activities at Spring Lake and at parks along the Russian River, on Bodega Harbor and the Gualala River. The Regional Parks offer plenty of settings to launch your kayak, board or canoe.
