Enjoying Suisun Marsh by Boat

On a recent weekday I had the opportunity to visit Suisun Marsh with the US Geological Survey on their boats.  While this is a rare privilege, you can enjoy Suisun Marsh on your motor boat, canoe or kayak.  The tides and the size of your boat will be be a factor in how maneuverable you are inside the Marsh.

There are two launches where Suisun Marsh is easily accessible:

1.  Belden’s Landing Water Facility in Suisun

2.  Suisun City Marina

Wear your life jacket and sunscreen.  It will surely be windy.  You can fish, enjoy a quiet paddle or go birding (bring your field glasses and your camera).

As mentioned in the Rush Ranch post, you may want to climb Suisun Hill to get an idea of where you’ll be exploring by boat.

I am not an experienced boater, but my time on the water convinced me to seek out more boating experiences in the Delta.
