(36) Delta Birding Cruise #5 – November 7

lodi sandhill crane festival delta birding cruise

Cruise leisurely along the waterways of the California Delta through prime Sandhill Crane habitat with a local licensed boat operator and a birder/naturalist. Cranes, swans, geese, and ducks can often be seen overhead, but don’t forget to keep an eye on the banks for the many other birds and mammals that inhabit the Delta. Bring your binoculars and camera! This tour is one of the hottest tickets at the Festival. It is suitable for able-bodied adults and kids, but an adult must accompany their children. Boats have an open canopy; always be prepared for the elements. Toilet facilities are dockside only. We set sail from the dock at Tower Park Marina/Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Camp-Resort. It adjoins the resort restaurant and other amenities. For more information about Tower Park Marina and the campground visit www.towerparkresort.com.
