Carneros Wildlife Preserve

NEW for 2016! Six miles of twists and turns through the Carneros Wildlife Refuge - Hudeman Slough. Spanning both Napa and Sonoma Counties this tour brings you eye to eye with morning egrets, blue herons and osprey set to a champagne vineyard backdrop accessible only by water. Paddlers glide on the ebb and flow of the San Pablo Bay into the northern reaches of the preserve where you may achieve downwind speeds over 12mph. As you emerge from the tail-waters, the ebb throttles back with the sound of swallows, you unplug from the cloud, and awaken to the rhythm of your paddle breaking the surface of protected waters.
