The Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta is comprised of over 700 miles of waterways that attract numerous forms of water recreation including boating, fishing, waterskiing, wakeboarding, jet skiing and more. Unfortunately though, according to the SacDelta.com website, the Delta also "represents one of the State's highest-accident areas" due to the popularity of the area.
It is imperative that boaters take the responsibility to become educated and trained in the safe and proper operation of their boat. There are numerous online resources and printed materials developed to educate recreational boaters. There are also local boater safety courses you may want to consider.
