Philadelphia Cruise at Sunset

The ultimate Philadelphia Sunset Cruise! The evening then turns magical as you cruise the calm waters and watch the bright lights of the city come alive. Our peaceful sunset cruises on the Delaware River are a unique Philadelphia experience and for many it turns into a very romantic excursion – especially with a visit to our fully-stocked bar to set the mood. For others, it is a great way to catch up with friends, unwind after a day’s work, or relax before heading out on the town for dinner, a show, or a visit to Spruce Street Harbor Park. Although our sunset cruise is not narrated, our crew always answers any questions you have!

During our Delaware River sunset cruise you experience the following sights:

  • The historic vessels of Penn’s Landing including the Olympia and Mushulu;
  • The tallship Gazela, the Ben Franklin Bridge and Philadelphia’s Race Street Pier;
  • The Camden Waterfront including the Battleship New Jersey, the Adventure Aquarium and Campbell’s Field;
  • The working waterfronts of Philadelphia and Camden; and
  • Other historic vessels and commercial vessels located in the Port of Philadelphia.

All of our yachts serve beer, wine, and mixed drinks during our cruises. Join us for a cruise on Philadelphia’s often overlooked Delaware River! Your attitude and perception of Philadelphia as a great river town will probably change as you experience PhillyByBoat from a new perspective.
