Sail on the Delaware River aboard the 48' schooner Summer Wind and see Philadelphia a whole new way. Our famous Sunset Sail is the most romantic thing to do in all of Philadelphia!

You may not find this tour listed among the most popular attractions in Philadelphia but that's just fine with me. I liked that not a lot of people knew about it. I booked a Monday evening sunset cruise for a romantic night, and it was...More

If you are thinking this is an America's Cup sailing experience, think again. But if you want an informative sail up and back the Delaware river, this hits the spot. Our experience: 1. Pier 24 was easy to find, set my GPS to the location...More

Amazing evening on the Delaware River with the gorgeous Philadelphia Skyline as a backdrop. Friends from the UK and Michigan raved about the trip and can't wait to do it again.

We booked a "Tropical Sail" tour as part of our 20th Wedding Anniversary week-end in Philadelphia. When booking, I told Captain Tom that we were celebrating this special occasion. The name of the tour conjured up in my mind a celebratory atmosphere of tropical music...More

Everything about our 90 minutes sail was right. The price was reasonable, the sail (for non-sailors like us!) was great and the hospitality was excellent. The "Summer Wind" was a great experience...just the right length of time for the route.

Well, to no fault of the captain, the evening of our scheduled Moonlight sail conflicted with a rap concert at the Susquehanna Bank Center across the river. It was very loud and obnoxious, which definitely detracted from the romaticism of the evening. Luckily we have...More
