What to Do

It’s time to explore the California Delta!

Summer in the California Delta means exploring the vast waterways by jet ski or kayak, floating leisurely on inner tubes, or catching a sunrise or sunset from the deck of a houseboat. Catch some Delta river crawdads, or better yet, hit up the summer festivals and events and enjoy some live and lively music.

The long winter months rewards fishermen with some of the best bass fishing around. This is also an ideal time to take a kayak cruise along the meandering waterways. Throughout the year, enjoy the treasures of the California Delta and find back-road adventures framed by beautiful 360-degree views.

With over 1,000 miles of navigable waterways the California Delta is a watersports paradise. It’s the perfect place to explore nature and the Delta’s unique landscapes, gain some serenity, and have a little fun. Come grab some California lifestyle.
