The California Delta Chambers & Visitors Bureau is an organization of chambers of commerce, visitors bureaus, businesses and boosters in the Sacramento- San Joaquin River Delta. The California Delta area strives to enhance the enjoyment for visitors to this unique 1,000-mile waterway, while strivinging to protect and preserve the area’s fragile beauty.
Our organization was established more than a quarter-century ago. Many of us first came here on holiday or vacation,
fell in love with this boating and fishing paradise, and later established our roots here. Some of us first experienced this profuse waterways on a rental houseboat, or on a fishing charter for sturgeon or striped bass; others of us rolled in on RVs and liked the area’s hospitality.
Some of the historic river towns are little changed from the Gold Rush era when paddlewheel steamboats came piping their arrival with the steam-driven calliope. Drawbridges yawn open to let boating traffic pass, you cross some waterways on lumbering cable-drawn car ferries, the postman delivers mail by boat.
For all its rural charm, the California Delta caters to visitors’ needs. It boasts over 100 marinas and waterside resorts, full-hookup RV parks and campgrounds. There are quaint waterside restaurants for dining, grocery stores for provisions, bait and tackle shops, and over 50 boat launching facilities. Public parks and bank-fishing sites are numerous.
