The following is a step by step guide on how to book your Delta Adventure:
1). Look at the Calendar page of this website to determine if the dates you want are available. Please keep in mind that the Captain has other obligations besides chartering groups on Delta excursions, therefore, even if the date(s) you want is not booked on the calendar, it does not mean the Captain will be available on the dates you want. You will need to call to check on availability for your specific dates. The calendar is merely to show dates that are already booked, and therefore, unavailable for sure.
2). Call the Captain and let him know what type of adventure you are looking for (hourly or overnight) and the number of guests that will be joining you. He can let you know then if your dates are doable.
3). Request a "Charter Agreement" from Captain Morgan via e-mail. 0nce you have received it, fill it out completely, sign and date the bottom and return it via e-mail or simply mail it to 5771 Cutter Loop, Discovery Bay, CA 94505. Make sure you include your 50% deposit (you can pay your deposit online with a credit or debit card) as stated in the Charter Agreement. Deposits are not refundable unless the trip is canceled 30 days prior to the cruise date of your reservation. If the Captain cancels the trip for any reason prior to the cruise date, you will receive a full refund.
4). Once the Captain receives your deposit and signed Adventure Agreement, he will post your adventure on the calendar page of this website. That confirms your adventure date(s). No reservation is confirmed until your deposit is received and the date(s) are posted on the calendar.
5). Go to the "FAQ's" page of this website and see the recommended items to bring. The Rosemarie is fully stocked with most everything you will need but their are some personal items you will want to bring. Also, you will see a list of items that are prohibited such as drugs, fire arms, knives, etc. If anyone in your group brings aboard a prohibited item, it will be grounds for the immediate termination of the trip without any refund. Please make sure everyone in your group understands what is expected so we all can have an enjoyable time without issues.
6). We will be meeting in the "Boardwalk Grill" Restaurant at the Discovery Bay Marina (5879 Marina Road, Discovery Bay, CA 94514) to start on our voyage (unless other arrangements with the Captain have been made), please make sure everyone in your group arrives on time so we can start the mandatory orientation promptly at the agreed upon time. If we leave the dock late, it could affect our ability to have bridges opened in the event our destination requires them to be opened. Your guests that arrive early can enjoy a few drinks and/or something to eat while the rest of your party arrives. Make sure the restaurant staff know you are with Captain Morgan's Delta Adventures and they will seat you all in the same area.
7). Depending on the departure time of your adventure, people may also be able to buy any last minute things they may have forgotten from the stores along the Boardwalk at the Discovery Bay Marina. However, if you follow the list of things to bring you should have everything you need. We will also be making store runs periodically on overnight trips incase anyone needs anything.
8). If you have any questions, please feel free to call the Captain anytime at 925.383.5346. If your call goes into voice mail, please leave a message, and the Captain will return your call as soon as possible, thank you!
