Choose Your Sailing Tour:

See historic Philadelphia a whole new way aboard the schooner Summer Wind. We sail every day (unless it rains!) on the Philadelphia waterfront. Our 90-minute tours are always fun for young and old. Come sail the Delaware River with us and enjoy a day on the water! The Summer Wind is limited to 6 passengers, so it's always small, intimate groups.

Want to have a picnic lunch on your sail? We now have catering from famous Campo's Deli. They have a large variety of trays they'll deliver to the boat just before your trip. Great food, great prices, and it's so easy! Just call them at 215-923-1000 to place your order.

Learn about the Delaware Rivers contribution to the growth of America's first city. From Swedish settlers of the early 17th century to William Penn's city of neighborhoods, from the American revolution to the industrial revolution, from a shipbuilding center to a major modern shipping port, the Delaware River has long been the lifeblood of Philadelphia. Sail back in time with us and learn about the people, ships and commerce that built Philadelphia and America. Sails most mornings. More fun than the Duck Boats.
