Perfect kayak Experience for Family
, Jun 2021
Lovely little kayaking experience. Especially with small children. Learn local history and explore on your own. Convenient location.
, May 2021
The guide was enthusiastic but there was not much to see.. Tide was super low (not the company’s fault) so shoreline was unattractive.
Great experience!

What a cool way to spend a couple hours! Kayaking on Napa River with a local guide, learning the history & legends & anecdotes of the area... delightful from beginning to end!
Must do excursion!

Great experience. The perfect way to get some exercise and see/hear a lot about Napa history! Justin was awesome. This is a must do excursion in Napa!
Great stories and fun on the river
, May 2021
Our guide told us many interesting historical stories about the river and Napa. The river was relatively easy to maneuver through and the point where this is located is close to many bars, restaurants and shopping. We were able to get some souvenirs and a nice lunch beforehand. It was a little chilly, so wear a sweatshirt if going on a relatively cool day. Overall the people running this establishment are knowledgeable and make you feel comfortable and confident even if it’s your first time. Very friendly and would highly recommend!

The trip started out with an hour-long tour with a guide. During this time, he shared interesting facts about the town of Napa and the environmental changes in the area that we wouldn't have heard on any other tour. The guided part of the tour required minimal physical strength for kayaking and there were families with small children who were able to easily keep up. The second hour was on our own, so my friend and I were able to push ourselves a little harder and see some more of the river. I was unsure if a swimsuit was required, but my friend was the only person on the tour wearing one and we both only got a few drops of water on our lower legs. A great tour!

This tour was a Blast. The tour guide was very entertaining and Funny. I was afraid it would be boring since it's called the History Tour but it was extremely interesting. Plus, the river is beautiful and the views are breathtaking. Lots of cute little critters and wildlife along the river too. I would go again for sure.

This Tour was a ton of Fun. I saw Turtles, Otters and some gorgeous birds. I also learned a lot of interesting History about the Napa Valley. It was a nice change from wine tasting.
