Car. Carriage. Bike. Balloon. There are lots of ways to tour the Napa Wine region. I prefer to kayak, dock my boat in downtown Napa and walk to the tasting rooms. It’s easy with a tidal river that actually pushes you forward if you time the tides right.
“It’s beautiful. It’s a different perspective of the Napa Valley,” says Laurie Aboudara-Robertson with Kayak Napa Valley. The tidal river winds lazily through the wine region — its brackish waters the perfect playground for all kinds of birds and the occasional otter and seal.
