Napa Kayak Rentals & Tours

Paddle the Napa River

See Wildlife and Beautiful Scenery

One of the largest rivers in Central California, the Napa River travels 50 miles to San Pablo Bay from Mt. St. Helena, offering countless outdoor activities like kayak rentals and tours.

Its prime location means you can rent a kayak in the morning and be back for an afternoon wine tour! Enjoy views of downtown and venture past the more developed areas to see wildlife and beautiful scenery.


Rent a Kayak on the River

Napa River kayak rentals provide a relaxed way to enjoy the outdoors in this beautiful valley. Departing right from the heart of downtown Napa, your kayak rental lets you experience a different perspective on the town’s shops, restaurants, and wineries while you take in the breathtaking views of the mountain ranges around you. Be on the lookout for snowy egrets, otters, beavers, great blue herons, and turtles during your river trip. You can even go fishing from your kayak, with over 50 different species of fish to catch. During your adventure, paddle past docks, boat ramps, green open space, and walking trails that run along the river.

For a guided river experience, take a Napa river history kayak tour and learn about the history of the valley, local wildlife, and of course, wine! Professional tour guides make your kayak experience easy, providing stable kayaks that are well-suited to beginners, and showing you a side of Napa that few people know. Kayaking is a great activity for all fitness and experience levels; the whole family can participate.
