The information below gives directions for travel to the California Delta with Snug Harbor as the target destination.  You may want to look at the Delta Map page first, and then come back to this one. 

   Ferry Routes:  There are two ferries serving Ryer Island, home to Snug Harbor.  The larger ferry is called the "Real McCoy".  To reach this ferry, take Hwy 12 to Rio Vista.  Just to the west side of the entrance to the Rio Vista bridge, take the off ramp that leads you to downtown Rio Vista (if you go right) or left to the levee road leading you to ferry ramp.  Go north along the west levee road of the Sacramento River  (i.e. Rio Vista side)  Go 2 miles to ferry ramp.  Ferry runs 24 hours a day, except for noon and 8 PM lunch breaks.  Ferry ride is free and takes 3-4 minutes to reach Ryer Island.  While RV's towing extra vehicles or boats can fit on this ferry, we suggest you use the bridge route if you are arriving at low tide, especially if you have a Motorhome, Trailer or 5th Wheel over 30' long.  The ferry ramp is somewhat steep, especially at low tides, so plan to go around to the bridge if you have a larger RV.  (The Delta tides are listed on Harbortides.com...put in "Snug Harbor" and California and you'll see the tide chart for us. Get off ferry, go right on Ryer Levee road about 4.5 miles to Snug Harbor. 

J-Mac Ferry is the second ferry serving Ryer Island.  It is a smaller cable ferry that goes across Steamboat Slough to Grand Island.  Only smaller RVs, under 30' are suggested for this ferry, and only at high tides.

 

Bridge Route:  Ryer Island Bridge: From areas north of the Delta:  Take Jefferson Blvd (Hwy. 84) coming from Sacramento area south or west into the Delta.  Jefferson ends at Courtland Road.  Turn right and follow Courtland road as it travels west then south to the "Miners Slough" bridge onto Ryer Island.  After you cross bridge, turn LEFT and go about 7.5 miles to Snug Harbor.  We're a mile past the J-Mac ferry.

From areas south or west of the Delta: Take Hwy 12 to Hwy 160.  Go north on Hwy 160.  You'll cross a bridge just after going through Isleton.  When you get to Walnut Grove, DON'T cross bridge there.  Instead, continue traveling north along the 160 levee road, with the Sacramento River on your right.  You'll cross a bridge at Steamboat Slough and another little bridge.  Keep going until you see Courtland bridge, also called the "PaintersVille Bridge".  Don't cross this either. Two streets north of the Courtland bridge is Courtland Road.  Just before Courtland Road there is a green sign indicating a left turn to go to Jefferson Blvd (Hwy 84).  You'll see the main part of the town of Courtland to your right, across the water.  Turn left onto Courtland Road and follow this as it veers left to Ryer Island. You'll come up to another bridge.  Cross bridge onto Ryer Island and go left, 7.5 miles to Snug Harbor.

From areas east or southeast of the Delta:  Take Hwy 5 or 99 north to the Walnut Grove exit.  Go west on Walnut Grove Rd. into Walnut Grove.  Just north of the Bank building and Post Office is the Walnut Grove bridge.  Cross bridge and go right on Hwy 160.  (You should be on the west side of the Sacramento River now)  Go north along levee road.  You'll cross the Steamboat Slough bridge, another small bridge, and then you'll see the Courtland bridge or "Paintersville Bridge" on your right.  Go past this bridge, continuing north until until you reach Courtland Road.  Just before Courtland Road is a green sign indicating left turn to Jefferson Blvd (Hwy84).  The main part of the town of Courtland will be on your right, across the water.  Turn left onto Courtland Rd and follow as it veers left to Ryer Island.  Cross bridge onto Ryer Island and go left, 7.5 miles to Snug Harbor.

From Sacramento:  Take Jefferson Blvd. (Hwy. 84) off Business 80/Frw.50.  Go south.  Follow Bridge Route directions above.

From Elk Grove:  Go to Hwy. 160 towards Courtland.   Cross the Courtland (also called "PaintersVille")bridge 1 mile south of Courtland.  Turn right and go two streets up to Courtland Road (You should be on the WEST side of the Sacramento River now).  Turn left onto Courtland Road and follow it to the bridge onto Ryer Island.  See Bridge Route above.

From Napa:  Go East on Hwy. 12 then North on Hwy. 80 and East again on Hwy 12 to Rio Vista.  Just before crossing the Rio Vista bridge, turn Right.  Go left under bridge.  Follow Ferry route directions above.  If you are traveling with a large RV, and its low tides, we'd suggest you use the bridge route described above instead of the ferry route.

From Marin:  Go East on Hwy. 37 to Hwy. 80.  Go north on Hwy 80 to Hwy 12.  Go East on Hwy 12 to Rio Vista.  Just before crossing the Rio Vista bridge, turn Right.  Go left under bridge.  Follow Ferry route directions above, or bridge route, if you have an RV over 30'.

From San Francisco:  Go north on Hwy 80 to Hwy 12 going EAST.  Take Hwy 12 east to Rio Vista.  Just before crossing the Rio Vista bridge, turn Right.  Go Left under bridge.  Follow Ferry route directions above.  Alternate: follow bridge route

From Stockton:  Go north on Hwy 5 or 99 to Walnut Grove exit.  Go west on Walnut Grove Rd to Hwy 160.  Go north on 160 almost to Courtland.  One mile short of Courtland, cross the Courtland bridge to the west side of Sacramento River.  Go right two streets to Courtland Road and turn left.  Follow Courtland Rd as is veers left to Ryer Island.  Cross bridge onto Ryer and go left.  7.5 miles to Snug Harbor

From San Jose:  Most folks like to go north on 680, east on 4, take the Antioch bridge or 160 into the Delta.  At 160 and Hwy 12 crossing, you can cross into Rio Vista and take the Ferry route, or continue north on 160 and take the bridge route.  There's also the 680 to 580 to Vasco Road, over the hills into Brentwood, then find Hwy 4 and then Hwy160.  But everyone seems to get lost in the Brentwood area, so take the Vasco Road route only if you know what you're doing!
