Patriot Harbor Lines aims to unlock Philadelphia's waterfront by showcasing Philadelphia's two great rivers.  We strive to leave each and every customer with a lasting, positive impression of Patriot Harbor Lines and the waterfront community where we work. We provide daily sightseeing tours and charter services on the Schuylkill and Delaware Rivers.  Our unique tours are perfect for locals who want to explore Philadelphia's rivers or out of town guests who would enjoy an educational river or harbor tour.  

The Patriot is a reproduction of a classic 1920's commuter yacht built in 2001.  The Patriot is certified by the Coast Guard and is perfect for river tours, charters, birthday parties, corporate outings, anniversaries and cocktail parties.  The vessel features wrap around seating, a fully equipped bar and a restroom.

If you are specifically looking for a narrated tour, we have some great ones to offer! Whether you are a local Philadelphian that wants to go beyond the average Old City tour or if you are a tourist looking for an overview of Philadelphia’s historic waterfront sites, we have a tour perfect for you! Choose between a heavily narrated tour, a lightly narrated tour or no narration at all.

Many of our guests like to come out to just relax on the water. Our pre-concert cruises, happy hour cruises, themed cruises and city light tours are best for a passive tourism excursion where no narration is included.

Fantastic tour for locals & visitors alike!

Attended: PhillybyBoat - Penn's Landing to Schuylkill Banks
 
We took the Philly by Boat tour yesterday with Captian Roy and Janelle and it was FANTASTIC. There were five of us, two couples and a toddler. My husband and I have lived in Philadelphia for 25 years, and we have never seen this view of Philadelphia. Lots of surprises, including a most amazing close look at the United States, and great views all along

I love to be on the water, but there aren't many opportunities to do that in Philly. The Patriot is certainly answering a long-felt desire. Highly recommend. The crew gave a really informative, interesting tour, answering lots of questions. Captain Roy is third generation on the Delaware. The boat is very handsome and comfortable. The full bar is a great touch for this relaxing outing. Would love to go again, either for the same tour or the night cruise to see the bridges lite up.

Tip: "Walnut to Walnut" and "Philly by Boat" are the exact same tours, they just leave from opposite ends. Both tours are one-way, so you have to cab or subway back if you drove to the starting point. Both ends of the tour are fantastic locations in Philadelphia - the pop-up park (limited time) and Seaport Museum at Penns Landing on one end, and the River Walk on the other. Exploring either or both of these locations makes for a really wonderful day with some of the best Philly has to offer! Another insider tip: if you have never been on the Moshulu at Penn's Landing, it is a great place to have a drink outside.

A five star tour of "hidden Philadelphia"
Sun, Aug 30  11:30 AM Male 70+ Local Individual
 
Attended: PhillybyBoat - Penn's Landing to Schuylkill Banks
 
The tour is an excellent overview of Philadelphia's water-based commercial history along the Delaware River , military history at the repurposed Navy Yard, the challenges of having a major refinery on the Schuylkill River, and efforts to be a destination city in the 21st century for milennials and others --the Schuylkill Banks Trail. For locals, this is an opportunity to see the "back side" of what you see when driving along Delaware Avenue and when driving to the airport. Captain Roy was one of the more informed tour guides I have encountered in 50 years of all sorts of tours. And of course there are the great visuals.

Terrific guide who really knew his stuff in describing the river, it's history and the big plans the city has for it. Good drinks. Beautiful weather and a nice breeze. The ride ended with all the lights coming on on the bridges!
