Mildred Island - or - Frank’s Tract
3 Days and 2 Nights: ($155.00 per person, per night)
Both of these picturesque locations are south of the San Joaquin River and require navigating passed movable bridges. The two hour cruise to Mildred Island or Frank’s Track offer great views above the levies and across the many farms that make up the Delta waterways. These locations are perfect for those who want to spend less time cruising the Delta, and more time playing in the water. Mildred Island is a large open area (like a lake) great for all kinds of water sports such as Wakeboarding, Skiing, and Tubing. Mildred Island is also a great spot for Waverunners and pleasure boats.
Franks Tract locations are for those who enjoy smaller coves and narrower waterways among the tulles that line the banks of the levy. Areas to Wakeboard, Ski, or Tube are just a short pleasure boat ride away. Franks Tract is also close to Bethel Island which has several Marinas, Restaurants, and Bars which make it a plus for those that want to explore new experiences during the day by kayak or raft. (Call the Captain for further details, 925.383.5346 )
Walnut Grove (Meadows Area)
4 Days and 3 Nights: ($159.00 per person, per night)
A journey to the Meadows area near Walnut Grove is an amazing cruise you won't soon forget. After we pass under three different bridges, we will meander our way through a two mile national bird reserve that has huge trees draping along the water's edge. Our destination has plenty of sights to see and is a paradise for bird lovers and those who enjoy calm water and picture perfect horizons.
This location is perfect to spend several days unwinding from all the stresses of life. You can enjoy all types of water activities, pick wild blackberries (while in season) along the river banks, or simply relax on the top deck of the Rosemarie in one of the comfortable chaise Lounges with your favorite cocktail while taking in the view.
If after a day of relaxation you decide to explore historic parts of Walnut Grove or the Town of Lock, a short ski boat ride takes you back in time to old China Town in the Town of Lock. Lock has great shops and the world renowned, "Al The Waps" steak house are all part of this historic community. You can also head to Justies Bar and Steak House that is famous for its great food and hats that line the ceiling over the bar area.
A destination to the Meadows area is ideal for those who love playing and relaxing on the water, but also like to venture out during the day to see the historic sites in the Meadows area. It takes 5 & 1/2 hours to get from Discovery Bay to this picture perfect location and we travel under 4 bridges (some need to be opened for us) along the way. With this package you will see the most beautiful parts of the Delta and still have two full days to relax to the sounds of nature in this picturesque location. (Call the Captain for further details, 925.383.5346)
Down Town Sacramento (Old Sac.)
5 Days and 4 Nights: ($179.00 per person, per night)
Old Sac. is a 9 & 1/2 hour cruise up the Delta in the Rosemarie from Discovery Bay. First you have to radio the Orwood Bridge (Draw bridge) tender and have him/her raise the bridge when their are no more inbound or outbound trains. Then past Franks Tract (a huge farm that was flooded when the levy broke years ago) and across the San Joaquin River. Past Lighthouse Marina and through the Mokelumne River Bridge ( Swing Bridge) only to veer left and navigate the narrow Georgiana Slew. Georgiana Slew is a sight to see, its narrow channel and overhanging trees make it a spectacular part of the adventure. Being about half way to Old Sac. we throw out the anchors by early afternoon so you can enjoy a cocktail and the water while the crew prepares dinner.
Around and under two more bridges the next morning and you are in Walnut Grove. Pushing further up the scenic river, we arrive in Old Sac. at the dock right under Joes Crab Shack (see picture below) the afternoon of the second day. For the rest of day two and all of day three, you can explore the many historical sights of Old Sac. From the historical museums, to the hundreds of old shops and saloons in the downtown area, you will be fascinated and feel as if you just went back in time to a simpler era. Across the street and you are in the downtown mall with more modern stores and shops than you could visit in just one day.
After eating a mouthwatering breakfast prepared by the crew on day four, its back towards Walnut Grove and a peaceful anchorage in a picturesque slew. You can then decide to enjoy the water for the rest of the day or take a short walk to Downtown Walnut Grove or the historical China Town district in Lock. After dinner from the top deck of the Rosemarie, you can exchange stories of the day with family and/or friends as dusk settles across the water and the darkness of the Delta brings out the stars.
The morning of day five starts with fresh coffee brewing in the main salon. After breakfast and a few good stories, we pull up anchors and head for home. We arrive back in Discovery Bay around 3PM on day five. As you disembark from the Rosemarie you will realize you have just finished an adventure of a lifetime with loving friends and/or family, good food, beautiful scenery, interesting historical facts and locations, and memories that will last a lifetime!
This destination is ideal for those that are looking for real adventure and have a love for both cruising up rivers and exploring historical sites. The memorable boat ride to and from Old Sac. is breathtaking and exploring Old Sac is fascinating. With that said, their is plenty of time on this cruise to grab a cocktail and raft to enjoy the simple act of floating in the calm of Georgiana Slew. I have included the link to the Old Sac website so you can see the numerous sights and activities that await you! http://oldsacramento.com/ (Call the Captain for further details, 925.383.5346 )
