Cruises depart from the Walnut Street Dock, located under the Walnut Street Bridge on the east bank (Center City side) of the Schuylkill River. The Patriot, a reproduction of a classic 1920s mini commuter yacht, is a U.S. Coast Guard-approved vessel that is perfect for tours, parties and corporate outings. Featuring wrap around seating, a fully equipped bar, restroom, and a sheltered yet open stern, the Patriot allows guests to take in all of the interesting sights along the tidal Schuylkill in comfort and style.
Cruises are not recommended for children under age 4. Carry-on food or beverages are not permitted. Tours are subject to cancellation without notice in case of inclement weather or conditions that are deemed unsuitable for navigation by the U.S. Coast Guard.
Patriot Harbor Lines runs a variety of tours on the tidal Schuylkill, including Hidden River, Different Night, Different Lights and the Walnut to Walnut Cruise. The Patriot is also available for private charters.
