About Napa Valley Paddle
Armed with a fleet of kayaks, instructors get riverine explorers up and running during a brief on-shore lesson. From there, guests can embark on one of several tours of the pristine and revitalized Napa River. For example, the Napa River Eco Tour takes tourists from south napa wetlands through the Oxbow Preserve, showcasing the transition from salt water wetlands to fresh water forest.
Kayaking 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. Self-guided tours and rental are also available.
