What You'll Get


Boats are like rich parents, in that they will float you for a few years while you drift around playing acoustic guitar and working on your coming of age novel. Live the dream with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $24 for a historical river cruise for two adults (a $40 value, including all fees)
  • $36 for a historical river cruise for two adults and two children aged 12 and younger (up to a $60 value, including all fees)
  • $48 for a historical river cruise for four adults (an $80 value, including all fees)

The captain lifts the veil on Sacramento's history during the one-hour historical Sacramento River cruise. In-between pointing out famous structures such as the Air Force Docks, the Delta King, and the I Street and Tower bridges, the captain relays tales of the city’s founder, John Sutter, the Gold Rush, and the early days of the Pony Express.

Tours depart Thursday–Sunday, and sometimes Monday–Wednesday, from now through October. Departure times vary by day, but most tours take place between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Boarding time is 15 minutes prior to departure.
