SF San Pablo Bay Boat Trip (SOLD OUT)

This trip is now FULL but you may register to be on the waiting list in case of cancellations.

San Francisco Bay, the largest and one of the most important estuaries along the Pacific Flyway, is right in our own backyard.  Join us as we cruise from Berkeley toward the Golden Gate Bridge and north into San Pablo Bay, hugging the shorelines and waters that are home to thousands of wintering birds.

Leaving from Berkeley, we will proceed along the old Berkeley ferry pier to see what’s shaking, turn north and head over to Southhampton Shoal, and then on to the Richmond Inner Harbor and Brooks Island and its breakwater. Leaving this area we’ll travel to Red Rock before passing under the Richmond/San Rafael Bridge and our views of East and West Brothers Islands. This trip offers water bird and marine mammal viewing in stunning locations, many of which can only be seen by boat.  In addition to the many ducks, loons, pelicans and gulls that come into the Bay for the winter, we can also expect to see resident cormorants, grebes, terns and murres.

Dress in layers. Bring liquids and lunch. Trip is limited to 25 people.

Vaccinations are highly recommended, please bring a mask for any time spent inside the cabin.

February Delta Boat Trip

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.

Trip is limited to 25 people.
