Extreme hospitality, great visit. 10 minute walk along the river to downtown. Third visit this year. Kayaked, swam in the river, rode bikes on the Napa Valley Vine Trail up to Yountville. Lots to do and will go again.

Our third visit to NVYC was great. Tom helped us dock and gave us a key. Very friendly and attentive service. The weather was absolutely idyllic. For a five-star rating, I would need a shower...either indoor or outdoor. Consider it.

We had a great time at NVYC. The docks were very secure, clean, and nice, with plenty of power available. We were with a group of 10 boats all with dinghies. Their help and guidance with docking was much appreciated! They made us feel very welcome. We can’t wait to go back!

Club members are very nice. Nice dock with good power and water. Only drawback is even though it was dredged in last several months, our sterns were on silt at zero tide. Love being able to take dinghy’s up river to downtown dock for enjoying the town.

Lovely place to visit. Facilities are great. The club members are super nice and helpful and even gave us an information packet with a map of the town. We'll be coming back!!

Spectacular weekend in Napa. Awesome club.

by Thomas L. - Verified user on Aug 08, 2023
Our stay was as usual wonderful with staff caring for us always. We did have a confusion over arrival time which was our fault for not really giving the actual time, so we arrived late without anyone to receive us. But we did get a key for the bathroom. For the remainder of the stay we were fine. Our granddaughters were very upset by the hanging in the bathroom, "Why is a ship called she?" They were totally opposed to the pretty bad misogynism. They said they would never come back again until that was taken down.

Perfect, as last time! We will visit you again! Best regards, Marco and crew!

Great dock, power supply excellent, and solid wifi. Port captains meet met us at the dock and helped tie up the boat. Plus great location. Walk to restaurants and bars. We will go back.

by GEORGE L. - Verified user on Apr 19, 2023
minimum of two. High Quality Port Captains to guide you in and help secure your vessel. The docks are high quality and powe and water plentiful! Great club on Fridays and full bar and dining!. Amazing members! Thank you

Great mourning to enjoy Napa, a short walk from downtown, we really enjoyed our stay.

by Betty B. - Verified user on Sep 25, 2022
Fantastic people and convenient location to downtown. Three stars due to their website and conversations we had with them prior to booking about depth at their dock. Person on the phone said there was no issues with a 6’ draft at their dock. On their website, the Commodore says “Our Napa River channel has been dredged so that dockside we have a 7 foot depth at MMLT.” Once arriving, we were told it is 4’ MLW at the dock with a soft bottom. The 4’ is correct. Deeper draft boats beware!

Port Captain and Commodore met us at the dock, took our lines and issued. Us a key. Told us about the local sights and made tour suggestions. Great service!

by Samuel M. - Verified user on Mar 07, 2022
Treated rudely. Forced us into side ties when we were told and promised stern docking. Handed useless marketing packets that contained a Tide book for 2020!!

by Robert C. - Verified user on Feb 22, 2022
There were nine boats, so we tied off stern-wise. The NVYC port captain was very efficient and helpful

by David B. - Verified user on Feb 02, 2022
We stayed two nights at the NVYC this past weekend. It was a terrific experience. Glen met us at the dock as we came up the river; he could not have been nicer. Helped us alight and tie up, showed us the facilities. The facilities are clean and well-maintained. The club is an easy, 15 minute walk to downtown and its attractions, which are plentiful (stopped by Sweetie Pies bakery each morning for a coffee and some pastries). There is a public dock on the riverfront if you prefer to go that way. It's free for three hours. The dock is easily approached and easily left when it's time to go. We were a bit nervous because of rumours of difficult navigation on the Napa River, but it was actually pretty easy. We will definitely come back.

Great hospitality! ...and dockwa requires me to enter 20 more characters - so there! -stupid.

Very nice. We’ll be back again. Excellent support when we arrived. Would be nice if they could get an ice machine. Super clean bathrooms!

Bob and team were awesome! Great place to stay up the river!

by John R. - Verified user on Sep 06, 2021
Very friendly staff/leadership. Dock is in excellent condition and the team was very helpful bringing us in. Bathroom was very clean and nicely done. Five stars if they add a shower!

We had a great time. The port Captain was great also. Thanks it would have been better if the club was open but we understand. Let’s hope that things get better soon. Thanks again

by Shawn C. - Verified user on Sep 28, 2020
Absolutely the best place to stay in Napa if you have a boat! The NVYC Port Captain always contacts us in preparation for our stay and meets us when we dock. The Commodore and members will make you feel its your home port.

by Harold L. - Verified user on Aug 01, 2020
Everything was great. The Port Captains stayed in contact and were very helpful. Nancy did a great job on the Salmon for dinner on Friday night. Hal

Charming yacht club overlooking the Napa River. Greg was very welcoming and helpful. Thank you Greg!

by Ron D. - Verified user on Oct 07, 2019
We had a great time! It would be even better if you added a shower to the larger bathroom. Being on a cruise out for three days without a shower is tough for some.

About Napa Valley Yacht Club

Boating and water sports were popular in the Napa Valley long before it became a famous tourist destination with over 400 world class wineries. Since before the 1849 Gold Rush, the Napa River has been a vital link between the Sacramento Delta and the Pacific Coast.

Organized in 1987, the Napa Valley Yacht Club continues to connect the boating community around the Bay by hosting hundreds of yacht club members and their boats every year. Our club is a short walk to a revitalized downtown Napa with its lively arts scene, gourmet restaurants and wine-tasting rooms. We are a dedicated group of fun-loving volunteers. The club is open every Friday evening for cocktails and dinner for members and guests. Membership includes over 100 families.

In 1998 Napa County Voters passed Flood Control Measure A to provide funding to protect Napa from flooding. Two new bridges, the First St. Bridge and Third St. Bridge, span the Napa River downtown. The Maxwell lift bridge downriver from the clubhouse has been replaced by a four-lane fixed span that limits the height of large sailboats sailing upriver to 60' at high tide. At mid to high water the river appears wider than the navigable channel because of bank terracing and tree removal. The Coast Guard has added new markers. Completion of the continuing project has been delayed by budget constraints.
