February Delta Boat Trip

February 13 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Tour the Delta on board the comfortable boat River Dolphin to explore the region’s rich habitats and potentially see
thousands of Tundra Swans, Snow Geese, White-fronted Geese, Sandhill Cranes, Canada geese, plus myriad ducks
and overwintering and resident raptors, herons, and songbirds. This full-day trip through the backwaters and
channels of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta provides wildlife views you’d never get from the land, as well as a
glimpse into the history and culture of this unique region. In recent years, participants have sighted six or more species of hawks and falcons while motoring through part of the thousand miles of waterways that make up this region.

Departs and returns from the Antioch Marina. Please arrive 20 minutes early to ensure an on-time departure and bring your own lunch. Light rain does NOT cancel the trip, but high winds/heavy rain might. Registered participants will receive an email with directions and logistics about a week before the trip.

Cost: $120 for GGAS members, $155 for non-members.

Trip is limited to 25 people.

Please do not register unless you are fully vaccinated. Please bring a mask for any time spent inside the cabin.
