People who visit San Francisco can go for a seven-hour cruise to the state capital through the Bay Area and up the Sacramento River. The river beat leaves the Fishermans Wharf of San Francisco on every Saturday from April to July and September to November. The demand for this cruise has increased so much that operators are planning to run it through the entire summer. The boats follow the route followed by the Forty-Niners during the California Gold Rush as well. In those days it took at least a week in reaching Sacramento but today people can return to San Francisco the same day.
The Sacramento River delta is like a maze of streams and canals, channels and in some areas it is so wide that the passengers will get the feel of an ocean voyage when they are on the cruise because land is no where in sight. Miles and miles the river seems primitive and roads parallel just 12 miles out of 91 miles of the river route.
There are several companies that are into providing exciting cruises to and fro Sacramento. If you have a special event coming up and you want to make it all the more special then you can custom design the event on water. Cruise companies can provide you catering services and staff who can design the perfect menu for you. Along with various other services the cruise can be an ideal gift for any occasion. You can celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, conduct business meetings, corporate entertainment, office parties, small seminars, sunset dinners, lunch and even weddings on such cruises.
With such services you can enjoy a private cruise that you will always remember. Just a day of relaxing, boating and enjoying the sun and ending it with an exiting evening under the stars, is there anything more you can ask for? You can get a Sacramento cruise custom designed for yourself by getting in contact with any good cruise company. The rate for custom cruises that will be specially designed to meet your needs can work out to 500 dollars per hour (2 hours minimum). For eight hours cruise on Sacramento River and fine food all the way, the price can come up to 179 dollars per person along with the gratuity and bar.
