Join us for a full day of relaxation, sightseeing, and food. The BATOC Delta cruise boards the houseboat Rosemarie in discovery bay at 9 AM and cruises to the Sugar Barge restaurant on Bethel Island for lunch at 11:30, returning to discovery bay at 3 PM.

The cost is $65.00 including lunch, and restaurant gratuity (The ship has a tip jar available if you wish to leave an additional gratuity.)

Meet at the Boardwalk Grill at 5879 Marina Rd.,  Discovery Bay, CA 94505 at 9:00 AM for a mandatory safety briefing prior to boarding, (with Mimosas and Bloody Mary’s to blunt the pain).

One caravan from the Tri-Valley is planned from the Country Waffles parking lot at 6049 Northfront Rd, Livermore, CA 94551 (Vasco/i580) at 8:00 am, leaving 8:15 sharp.  Others, organize your own caravan(s) or meet independently at the Boardwalk Grill in Discovery Bay at 9:00 AM

On this full day of adventure, you can relax with your favorite drink (no-host Bar onboard) while listening to Captain Morgan’s playlist which features everything from Reggae, Blues, Country, Classic Rock, to the sounds of the Caribbean. We will navigate past the Discovery Bay Lighthouse, under the Orwood Railroad Bridge, and past the famous Forbes Island Lighthouse formerly located at Pier 39 in San Francisco. Traveling further up Old River you will experience spectacular sights from the top deck of the Rosemarie which allows you a vantage point that provides panoramic views. We will then cut across the south end of Frank’s Tract to arrive at the Sugar Barge Restaurant and Bar around 11:30 am for lunch.

Lunch includes your choice of Half Pound Barge Burger with fries, Fish & Chips, or Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad. Your lunch also includes soft drink and dessert (alcoholic drinks sold separately). Your tax and tip for lunch is included in the cruise fee.

We will say goodbye to Sugar Barge at 1:00 pm and head back to Discovery Bay, arriving at the Discovery Bay Marina around 3:00 pm.

Remember: All cruise guests must meet at the Boardwalk Grill Restaurant (5879 Marina Rd, Discovery Bay, CA 94505) at 9:00 am for a brief safety meeting that is required by the United States Coast Guard. After the safety meeting, all cruise guests must sign in, verifying they received the safety instructions prior to boarding the Rosemarie.
