Paddling offers a wholesome, outdoor experience that all members of the family can enjoy together. Not only is it a fun physical activity to expend excess energy, paddling provides a wonderful way to connect with the natural world and explore like Huckleberry Finn would.
Choose your adventure with a guided or unguided trip! Guided trips of the Napa River are perfect for those new to paddling and families too! The unguided trips are ideal for adventurers who want to create their own experience by choosing which sites to see, which routes to take and how much time to spend on the water.
