Napa River Boat Trip

July 25 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

This trip is now FULL and already has a long waiting list. 

Journey up the Napa River to a world of hidden backwaters and wildlife that you would never see from the highway! Starting at the historic Vallejo waterfront, you’ll view numerous Osprey nests at Mare Island. Then you’ll move into a world of vineyards, backwater homes, and some of the largest contiguous marshes in the Bay Area. See Osprey, egrets, diving ducks and grebes, and learn about one of the largest tidal marsh restoration projects in the country. Dolphin Charters, our trip provider, is a longtime partner of Golden Gate Audubon and always provides a great experience.

Trip costs $75 for Golden Gate Audubon members or $110 for non-members. Confirmed participants will receive directions to the Vallejo Marina and other instructions during the week before the trip.

Limited to 25 passengers (less than full capacity to maintain social distancing). No scopes or hiking boots allowed on board. Bring snacks or a bag lunch if you wish.

Registration will open at 10 a.m. on July 1st and close at 4 p.m. on Thursday, July 22.  If you try to sign up before July 1st,  you’ll get a message that registration is closed. If the trip is full, you may sign up to be on a waiting list.
