There is the Nautical Swap Meet, thinking of heading out there, if it happens this year. Driftwood Marina is also having a 2nd annual swap meet sometime this year.

The Crawdad Festival from the 1990s and early 2000s is long gone. Apparently the folks who owned the rights to it, moved it to, I believe Red Bluff. Politics apparently played part in killing it too. There have been some small cajun type festivals but nothing to compare to the classic festival. Think the last time I went that it was still fun was 2006.

Does anyone know if they still have the Isleton Crawdad Festival...it used to draw thousands to the delta.

I still shed a tear when I drive past Das Cliff Haus and see the state it is in. The first time I ever went to the delta, back in the summer of 1992, that is where we went. After that we cruised down 160 and ended up in a strange little town. There were signs everywhere advertising something - we were like, what the heck is a Crawdad Festival? Another world ago .....

Every year we cruise the Delta for about a week. First stop is always Benicia and second stop is Rio Vista. After that, it is open. This summer we are planning to make it to Giusti.
Can anyone suggest a good itinerary starting from Sausalito?

It is so difficult to maintain and prosper a delta Marina, bar or restaurant that a lot of places simply close up. In time the old swamp reclaims everything and it all becomes rotted wood and mud again. I am sick when I see Helen and Hermans, The Outrigger, Lost Isle, Das Cliffhouse, MooresRiverboat and so many others just succumb to deferred maintenance and lack of capitol. I will always cruise up there because there is little else that brings me so much pleasure as putting the hook out in some quiet slough and having a lemonade or two and watching the sun set.

It is a shame. I love that place too. My grandpa would take us out in his boat, he had slipped at McAvoys, in the early 60's. Been hooked ever since.

i cruised the delta twice from Sf in the early 80s. Even then while it was somewhat popular it was run down. perhaps people considered that part of the charm but it seemed to me that most of the places were on their way out because owners could not afford to maintain them for a weekend crowd. Tiki huts, panties on the ceiling and IITYWBAD only work once.

You put a good boat, stocked with world class whiskey and cigars.....can,t get better than that. Let's hope foe a good year for the old swamp

Much like boating in the Delta. At our marina, the boats just sit and die.

Is getting harder and harder to remember my password. lol Strange that nobody posts here any more. Wonder if putting the link on the California Delta Chambers Newsletter might help.
