Kevin O’Leary, President of Pacific Powerboating and Coast Guard–licensed captain, guides intimate groups of sight-seeking passengers through the California Delta aboard a Bayliner yacht. Small tour groups cast off from Moore’s Riverboat restaurant docks in a 38-foot, USCG–documented pleasure-cruiser fitted with cutting-edge safety and communications gear. While skimming along the pristine, ecologically diverse California Delta waterways, guests may catch glimpses of more than 600 species of animals, including white herons trawling for fish, river otters scampering, or snowy egrets majestically landing their biplanes in the reedy shallows. For a break from the flora, the captain leans on experience contributing to Bay and Delta Yachtsman magazine to curate a docket of stops at local hotspots and hidden gems.
While some excursionists meander through both spacious upper and lower decks, others lounge in the two master bedrooms and listen to the ship’s stereo system. Guests sip complimentary nonalcoholic beverages and mouth-wrestle snacks, or can tote along BYOB libations. Kids under 10 years of age sail for free, and parents can rest assured knowing that the captain is fully insured and certified in CPR, first aid, and shadow puppetry.
