Sacramento River Cruises
In this delightful one-hour cruise, we’ll sail past Old Sacramento's famous historical sites, including the Delta King, the I Street Bridge, the Tower Bridge, and the Air Force Docks. As we tour, we’ll hear fascinating stories from the history of Sacramento—from John Sutter, the founder of Sacramento, to the wild first days of the Gold Rush and the legendary Pony Express. California's capital city is filled with exciting history and beautiful sights, and you’ll have the perfect view. And if you’d like a treat, just visit the onboard snack bar.
