Overview
Old Town Sacramento can be super crowded due to its hip hot spots. Avoid the crowds and take in the sights from the water during this Sacramento River cruise. You can relax and enjoy either outdoor or indoor seating areas as you listen to your captain’s historical commentary that traces the Gold Rush, Pony Express, and present day. Plus, a meeting spot at the L Street Dock makes it easy to hop aboard.
What to Expect
This Sacramento historic river cruise meets at the L Street Dock in Old Town Sacramento. Board a yacht and get ready for a relaxing cruise down the Sacramento River.

You can choose to sit outside or inside, whichever you prefer. Take in the sights as you listen to historical facts about California’s capital city. Hear about the Gold Rush, the Pony Express, and other key events that were part of Sacramento’s past.

Cruise under Tower Bridge, see the Delta King steamboat, and catch sight of McClellan Air Force Base.

Your Sacramento River cruise ends back at the L Street Dock.

The tour on the boat is one of the best ways to see part of Sacramento. At one point, you can see the capital which is beautiful.
