Sacramento Historic River Cruises

Ready to take in a little Sacramento history from the comfort of a Hornblower yacht? In this delightful one-hour Sacramento river 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 lively history and beautiful sights, and you’ll have the perfect view on this Sacramento river cruise.

Had a fantastic time and the crew was wonderful! Thanks for a great day!

Our September 7th Sacramento River Cruise was pleasant and relaxing. The crew members were all very professional and attentive. The narrator's storytelling abilities took us back in time to the gold rush days, then back to present day with ease and accuracy. My 6 year old grandson was happiest of all. Thank you for making this a memorable day.
