Napa Valley Paddle
Napa Valley Paddle teaches people to walk on water. Armed with a fleet of stand-up paddleboards, instructors get riverine explorers up and standing during a brief on-shore lesson. From there, guests have unfettered access to the pristine Napa River, where they glide along its reed-lined shores and paddle under five new bridges and around bends that open into stunning views of sun-drenched mountainsides, flowering vineyards, and groups of wild lawyers sunning themselves on the grassy beaches.
The sport is known for its cross-training and ab-blasting benefits, and in addition to being an effective exercise, it can also double as bonding experience. To that end, Napa Valley Paddle leads educational tours or team-building excursions.
