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!

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.
