com­mu­ni­ties re­quire a long com­mute to reach the ski­ing sloughs, Delta Coves of­fers the equiv­a­lent of a back­stage pass to the ac­tion. Early ris­ers can get out on the still wa­ter for a morn­ing of ski­ing, wake­board­ing or wakesurf­ing, and still have time to get to the of­fice. On week­ends, those same en­thu­si­asts can come back home for break­fast af­ter a morn­ing ses­sion — then go right back out again un­til lunch.

The Delta, how­ever, isn’t just about go­ing fast. Its wa­ter­ways are equally con­ducive to a quiet jaunt in a kayak or on a stand-up pad­dle­board, or a leisurely cruise to take in the re­gion’s nat­u­ral beauty. The coves and channels near Delta Coves are also prime ter­ri­tory for fish­ing, with a range of species lur­ing an­glers year-round. In fact, the Delta is con­sid­ered one of the top 5 bass-fish­ing des­ti­na­tions in the United States, and its an­nual Rio Vista Bass Derby & Fes­ti­val, a three­day cel­e­bra­tion held each Oc­to­ber, is the old­est such tour­na­ment on the West Coast.

The area around Delta Coves is also a hot spot for cat­fish, stur­geon, salmon, shad and other species. The com­mu­nity’s prox­im­ity to good fish­ing holes means that res­i­dents can get an early jump on other an­glers — and get to know the best spots like only a lo­cal can.

Delta Coves res­i­dents can even fish — and swim — off their own pri­vate docks. The com­mu­nity’s la­goon stretches through­out the de­vel­op­ment, of­fer­ing a tran­quil place to drop a line, take a swim or go for a pad­dle. The pro­tected har­bor is also a per­fect place to learn early boat­ing and float­ing skills — all just right out your back door.

That back door is the key to the wa­ter-based life­style at Delta Coves. With a spa­cious back deck and pri­vate dock, each house at the com­mu­nity is a gate­way to the great Cal­i­for­nia water­way, where sport, leisure, ed­u­ca­tion, friend­ship and na­ture all com­bine.
