August on the Delta: Cruises and More

With the hot August weather in full swing, there can be no better place to be than on the Delta. With over 1,000 miles of waterways, there is lots to do and I have provided a list of events courtesy of the California Delta Chambers & Visitors Bureau which is an organization of chambers of commerce, visitors bureaus, businesses and boosters in the Sacramento San Joaquin Delta.

In looking at the Chambers August Calendar,  their are multiple events hosted by Opportunity Cruises that looked enticing.  Its well priced at just $37 for a 2.5 hour lunch cruise on the Delta which includes a box lunch. They also have a few sunset dinner cruises for around available for later in the month with different price levels. The details on all of their tours are listed below.
