  • Dear Boating Friends;

    UPDATE: The good news is we are still on !! The BAD news is that we have to wait another year :(  and double :( :(

    Not sure how many more good years I have to wait !! .. I'm afraid that all of those who can remember how it was wont be around by the time it reopens..  very sad indeed.

    I'm really loosing a lot of confidence after reading the latest web site update.. stating that "oh by the way we just remembered that this island floods so we have to make provisions for flooding in the design"....

    OMG !! AYFKM ??!! .. the place has been flooding every year for the last 1000 years.. and they just now thought of that !!!!!  That's total CRAP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just for that we will have a commemorative party at the NEW CrawDads River Resort on the first night of Live Music on FRIDAY MAY 2.


    * * *

    According to information on the Lost Isle resort web site.. The world famous crown jewel of the California Delta may once again open it's doors in May of this year, 2015. Hallelujah!! I feel a mighty stone has been lifted away.

    I wish them success and good luck, and hope that the spirit of friendly boating camaraderie that historically prevailed throughout the delta will once again shine strong on the patrons of Lost Isle. The type of people that brought the downfall of lost isle are far and away from true boaters by any stretch of the immagination, and let's hope they stay far and away from Lost Isle.

    From the Lost Isle web site...

    "The good news -- primarily because of the improving economic conditions in the Bay Area, we have decided to open for the 2014 season.  We apologize for the substantial delay that our customers have had to endure in their quest to drink our “world famous Mai Tai.”  The new docks, bathrooms, restaurant and entertainment venue should be well worth the wait.  We look forward to seeing you in spring 2014."


    Amen to that brother ;)

    Status of Opening Lost Isle Bar and Resort:

    Progress has been made after a 16 year pursuit. In the fall of 2012, we finally received the necessary approvals and permits to re-build the structures on Lost Isle. Previously, in 2010, we had received the approvals to appropriately operate the business. Considering the construction lead times, the then current economic state of the California economy, and the significant anti-business climate generated by the fall election results, we decided not to pursue a strategy to open for the 2013 or 2014 season.

    The good news — primarily because of the improving economic conditions in the Bay Area, we have decided to open for the 2015 season. We apologize for the substantial delay that our customers have had to endure in their quest to drink our “world famous Mai Tai.” The new docks, bathrooms, restaurant and entertainment venue should be well worth the wait. We look forward to seeing you soon. Thank you, Lost Isle Bar and Resort Manageme

    Anyone with a boat want to buddy boat with me on Lake Powell the end of April? I've done it several times, boat camp at a different spot each night, should be able to get up past Bullfrog.
    My wife will be visiting her family in Europe so I'll be traveling alone.
    I'm hauling the boat from the Los Angeles area, will arrive at Wahweap Marina (near Page, AZ) April 28 and leave for Las Vegas May 3 where I've booked a 3 day river rafting trip down the Grand Canyon (Minus the boat).

  • John R

    I'm confused! I checked the Lost Isle web site a month or so ago and again today (4/21/2014) and it says they will open in 2015.
    It's a bit late for us to change our plans now. We'll get up there but probably end of May or early June.

  • Jeanette D.

    anybody available to help with our ignition on our Sea Ray boat this week? We need to get our boat in it's slip! Thanks so much!

  • Jimmy C

    Hi Jeanette

    What is your definition of making it for June or July between the Sac River and Pot Luck Beach without more rain and snow which isn't likely.? Thanks.

    April 8, 2014

  • Jimmy C

    For those of you with experience on the American River between the Sac River and Pot Luck beach how do you think the drought will affect boating this year, if at all?

    April 7, 2014

    • Jeanette D.

      We will get a little bit of a runoff from the snow, but we still needed to rain to make it on the American River or June July

      April 8, 2014

    • Jeanette D.

      For June and July

      April 8, 2014

    It's a 400 mile drive from Los Angeles. So we'll putt around for about a week. Anyone interested in joining us with your boat? Mine 's a 23 ft Dorsett Cabin Cruiser. We live aboard, stay in Marinas or tied to a tree.

    1 · February 5, 2014

    • Jennifer

      Wow that sounds fun. One day I'll hopefully have a boat with a cabin like that. It sounds like a grand adventure.
