Napa River Adventures' Guided River Boat Cruises
All cruises are aboard our luxurious, electric-motor launches, which comfortably seat up to 11 passengers. Seating is limousine-style and the wrap-around windows provide panoramic views from every seat. Guests are encouraged to bring beverages and snacks to enjoy during their cruise.
Your Napa River Adventures cruise begins with a narrative of the Napa River and the impact it has had on the local community. As we head North along the Napa River passing through the recently restored wetlands and head towards historic downtown Napa, you will be able to see remnants of our past and understand how present changes will affect the future of Napa. The many species of birds provide topics of interest and are beautiful elements in the sweeping vistas of the valley. You will note the change in the temperature, wind along our cruise – and understand the unique micro-climates that enable Napa Valley to produce our exceptional wines. Tides and times permitting, we will also pass Copia: The American Center for Wine, Food and Art, and the Napa Yacht Club.
Come relax with us after a long, hard day of wine tasting. Leave the traffic behind as we cruise off into the sunset. Whether you are first-time visitors to the Napa Valley or experienced pros, we promise to show you parts of Wine Country not often seen.
