This was my second kayak trip. Unfortunately, Napa River was very low and my paddle and boat touched ground. Many trees had fallen. It was quite an experience. I will travel upward next time and maybe the river will be higher God willing. I will be looking to book this again. We were well-coached and my friend and I got a good work out.

Our guide (Justin) was great. The kayaks were sturdy and easy to navigate. We were given some time to cruise around after the tour and had fun exploring the river.

With the ramp they have to help you get into the canoe, it's the only way I can go Kayaking. The guide was very informative and sounds like he has the history books of Napa and the Napa river memorized. The guy is walking Napa encyclopedia! He had many history lessons that I'm sure most of the Napa residents aren't aware of including one about a big building that was cemented closed just to preserve the evidence of an unsolved murder of her relative and much more information as well. It was a very interesting and fun trip.

Excellent outing, great guide. Was a bit too tough for one of our group (heat/sunshine didn’t help). Was hoping for a more pastoral environment but adjoining the downtown did support some interesting historical tidbits.
