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.
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.

We play a great variety of tropical beach music with our own jambalaya mixture of Caribbean, Cajun, Reggae, New Orleans and Memphis music, with plenty of Florida and California sunshine thrown in. We always have a good time and so will you!Better than Ride The Ducks.
