The Delta King
Following extensive restoration and renovation, the Delta King is now permanently moored in Sacramento, California. The Delta King is a 285-foot riverboat that was originally built in Glasgow, Scotland and Stockton, California. The King and her identical twin, the Delta Queen, were christened on May 20, 1927, and began their daily river voyages between San Francisco and Sacramento in June of that year. At 6:00 p.m. each evening, the grand monarchs of the Delta left their docks for the 10.5 hour trip that included prohibition era drinking, jazz bands, gambling, and fine dining. Today, this authentic sternwheeler riverboat offers a 44-room hotel, two highly-praised restaurants, two professional theaters, a wine school, and unique facilities for events and meetings.
