Welcome aboard for a cruise where you’re spellbound in Delaware River legends of pirate ghosts, the Jersey Devil, and other “Phantoms of the River.” Our very own pirate narrator will dredge up the darkest of tales while we cruise this haunted river. During the cruise we will explore the following sights on the Delaware River:

  • 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
  • Graffiti Pier
  • Petty’s Island, Blackbeard’s Cove, and the Battleship New Jersey
  • The working waterfronts of Philadelphia and Camden
  • Other historic vessels and commercial vessels located in the Port of Philadelphia
Meeting Location: We depart from the Seaport Museum dock at Penn’s Landing. The dock is attached to the Seaport boat shop at the North end of the marina adjacent to the Hilton Hotel. The Seaport Museum’s street address is 211 South Christopher Columbus Blvd, Philadelphia, PA 19106. Please plan to arrive at the dock at least 15 minutes before our scheduled departure time. We cannot wait for late arrivals. Visit Patriot Harbor's website for more information here!
