The following information is a step by step guide to book both "Public" and "Private" cruises.

​​​​​​How To Book A Cruise

​​1). To purchase individual tickets to one of our public cruises, click on the "Public Cruises" page of this website and you will see the yearly cruise schedule with cruise details and pricing.

To book a private cruise look at the "Calendar " page of this website to determine if the date(s) you want are available. Please keep in mind that we other obligations besides chartering groups on Delta Adventures so even if the date(s) you want is available on the calendar it does not mean the on the date you want will be available. You will need to call or email to check on availability for your specific date(s).

2). Call or email us and let us know what type of Delta Adventure you are looking for and the number of guests that will be joining you. There is a US Coast Guard maximum license restriction of 35 guests on our cruises. We can let you know if your date is available. Even if there is already a cruise shown on the date you want we can book more than one cruise on any given date as long as their is about 1 hour in-between cruises. Even if the calendar shows something booked on the date you want, make sure you click on that reservation so a text box will pop up and you can see the scheduled time for the booked cruise. If the time you want allows at least 1 hour between cruises then we may be able to accommodate your event. Please call or email using the Contact Us page to see if your date and time will work at  925-383-5346.

3). If your date and time is available, request a Charter Agreement using the Contact Us page of this website. We will email you a Charter Agreement to the email you fill out on the website form. Once you get the agreement fill it out completely, sign and date the bottom, then e-mail or mail it back to us. The email with the Charter Agreement will also include instructions on how to pay your 50% deposit using PayPal if you choose to pay online. Or you can mail your payment to us at the address in the agreement.

Please make sure you read our "Refund Policy" for all cruises. Deposits for Private Cruises are fully refundable is the cruise is cancelled 30 days prior to the cruise date. Tickets for Public Cruises are not refundable if the cruise you booked is sold out or your cancellation is within 14 days notice of the cruise date. If the Captain cancels any cruise for any reason, you will receive a full refund.

4). Once we receive your deposit and signed Charter Agreement, your cruise will be posted on the Calendar page of this website. That confirms your cruise date(s). No reservation is confirmed until your deposit is received and the date(s) is posted on the Calendar page of this website.

5). Go to the FAQ's page and see the recommended items to bring. Our vessel, the Rosemarie,  is fully stocked with most everything you will need but their are some personal items you may want to bring. You will see a list of items that are prohibited such as drugs, firearms, knives, and of course swords and cannons. If anyone in your group brings aboard a prohibited item, it will be grounds for the immediate termination of the cruise 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). Unless other arrangements have been made, we will be meeting to start our Delta Adventure at the Boardwalk Grill Restaurant, located at 5879 Marina Road, Discovery Bay, which is at the Discovery Bay Marina. Please make sure everyone in your group arrives on time so we can start the mandatory orientation on 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 for the brief safety orientation.

7). Depending on the departure time of your cruise, people may also be able to buy any last minute things they may have forgotten from the shops along the Boardwalk at the Discovery Bay Marina. However, if you follow the list of things to bring you should have everything you need (this is mainly for overnight adventures). On overnight Delta Adventures we may be making periodic store runs in case anyone realizes they forgot something.

8). If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 925-383-5346. If your call goes into voice mail, please leave a message and we will return your call as soon as possible. Thank You!
