    Default Things to do/see by boat

    Posted in the NorCal and Open forums too but SFOcean said that this is the place to be! Was suggested by RDP'er Steve (Roaddogg 4040) to join this site for advice re: a Delta visit at the end of this week and in particular Phil (Dimarco21) but don't know how to find specific users yet. This will be our 3rd trip and have been Pretty much covered the area from Tower Park to Guistis to Pittsburg/Discovery Bay and every bar/restaurant en route. Am hoping you guys have some suggestions about any other things to do/see/navigate on the water. Will be in a 24' Lavey NuEra staying at Tower Park. Thanks

    Sounds like you have been to much of the southern delta areas, why not go north?

    Go up the Sacramento River -you can catch it from the main channel at Rio Vista or you can go up the South Mokelumne and into Walnut Grove (by Gustis) You can go to the Ryde Hotel and Bar they have a brunch there on the weekends, then head up through Isleton, (great steakhouse there called "Petes") and a bar at the Del Rio, lots to see along the way, go into Loche and visit Al the Wops bar, as you begin to enter Sac you'll find Scotts Seafood and Bar on the river and then go all the way up into Old Sacramento where you can spend an entire day just checking out the shops and restaurants up there. Stay the night at the Embassey Suites or the Delta King Hotel (also great bar and food) or just on the water.

    Then go up further to many more bars (Chevys, The Sturgeon, ) and end up at Swabbies for some live music and great tacos! right on the river.

    Enjoy!

    This is very helpful thanks PTC. We have to make it back to Tower Park by evening so roughly how long is the trip to Old Sacramento cruising at 30-40 mph from TPM?

    I would guess if you go the back way past Giusti's it would be 1.5-2 hours max at those speeds. I'm sure your boat would be fine thru Rio Vista on the Sac River but no reason to head out there if you are staying at Tower Park. Everything PTC said would be great. Enjoy the ride! Nina's in Stockton has really good Mexican food & excellent secure public docks, just remember to get the code for the gate to get back onto the dock after lunch. You could stop at Windmill if you head to Stockton.
