The San Joaquin Delta Power Squadron

 

Our Location


We are located right in the heart of the San Joaquin Delta. We are dedicated to educating the Delta boating community. We hold monthly meetings at the Stockton Yacht Club (located I-5 to Alpine to Wisconsin, right on Wisconsin to the end of the road). Guest speakers are often invited to do presentations on any number of topics, from navigating the ships down the deep water canal to the aquatic weeds education.

About SJDPS


The San Joaquin Delta Power Squadron is fortunate to have an island training facility in the San Joaquin Delta. Our "Partner in Command" program is held at the training facility throughout the year. This program teaches the "First Mate" how to handle your boat in case of emergency. Also, during the "Public Boating Course" the students are invited to board various member vessels and cruise out to our training facility. Along the way they have an opportunity to put their new knowledge to the test.

Our "Public Boating Course" is available to the general public. While our "Public Boating Course" is free, there may be a charge for an optional course manual for the course. Upon passing the exam at the end of the boating course you are then eligible to become of a member of the San Joaquin Delta Power Squadron.

All members of the San Joaquin Delta Power Squadron are then eligible to take advanced boating courses such as Seamanship; Piloting; Advanced Piloting; Junior Navigation; and Navigation.

All members are also eligible to take advantage of informative & interesting Elective Classes such as: Cruise Planning; Engine Maintenance; Instructor Development;

We also have several Vessel Safety Check volunteers. If you are interested in a Vessel Safety Check or would like more information about our Vessel Safety Check program please click here.

We're not "all work and no play." We make plenty of time for the fun stuff too. Check out our Calendar of Events. There are a wide variety of activities available...something for everyone... anywhere from a 10-day Bay Cruise to Wine Tasting in Lodi to an organized Memorial Day get together at the Island Training Facility to Potluck meetings. Not to mention the Holiday party which includes an excellent dinner and a silent auction and the Change of Watch banquet. Check out our Photo Gallery!!
