Have you ever longed to kayak on a beautiful river but not been able to because you have your dog along? Come to Mendocino County, where it’s easy to go paddling with your pooch.

Catch A Canoe and Bicycles Too, associated with Mendocino’s dog-friendly Stanford Inn by the Sea, invites visitors and their four-legged companions to explore the beautiful Big River estuary in an outrigger canoe outfitted with a platform where dogs can sit or stand while watching the scenery drift by.

There’s even “canine cruiser” version that can accommodate up to four dogs on a large platform. On the nearby Noyo River, Liquid Fusion Kayaking provides kayaks with cockpits large enough for well behaved dogs to cuddle with their people. Paddle on!
