A world of its own since 1957.

In 1957 a group of well known investors purchased Venice Island and formed the Venice Island Duck Club. Over the years many famous people have visited the club to relax, rejuvenate, and hunt.  

With sunset views of Mount Diablo and vast waterways traversing throughout the Delta and ships passing by as they make their way from far-away-lands to the inland Port of Stockton, you pause to take it all in. Venice Island, the greatest secret in the Delta, is a place where simply breathing the fresh air and the touch of the Delta breeze on your face draws you to a place that is a haven for rest and relaxation - for relationship and adventure. A haven that is both luxurious and exclusive, yet casual and friendly.

The amenities are impressive. A beautiful, fully furnished clubhouse where you gather for meals and entertainment; a wing of twelve private guest rooms; a separate house with four full suites and a manager’s quarters, a fully contained, operational ± 1,200 acre farm; twelve permanent custom duck blinds, waterfowl hunting and land maintenance; a private heliport; dock; and boat ramp.
Come to Venice Island and come to another world.

It’s all here - fishing, water activities, hunting in a beautiful, pristine outdoors environment. Very few places in the world offer this incredible type of lifestyle on the San Joaquin River.
