SailTime Philadelphia offers Captained Charters,” Learn to Sail” classes and season long Memberships where participants can skipper a boat on their own.
Captained Charters: Enjoy an amazing experience during a charter on one of our beautiful sailboats. Whether you want to hop on board during a “Discover Sail” or simply get out on-the-water for a couple of hours at sunset, you’ll have a view of the city that you can’t find anywhere else!
Your adventure will be led by a USCG licensed Captain and during your cruise, you can choose to participate with helping to sail the boat, or simply sit back to enjoy the scenery.
Participants can enjoy a light meal* along with their favorite beverages (BYOB) while they’re underway. (*Guests are invited to bring their own refreshments or can order food selections from one of our waterfront partners.)
Sailing School: If you’ve always dreamed about learning to sail, we can help fulfill your dream! We are an American Sailing Association (ASA) Certified sailing school, offering the full line of ASA courses; from beginner classes to more advanced courses designed to expand a sailor’s resume.
Memberships: Members enjoy regular access to a professionally maintained, mid-30’s and up optimized, cruising sailboat. Reservations are made through an online, flexible scheduling system that is available 24/7. The member shares the use of the vessel with 5-6 other fully trained members, but gets to enjoy a private experience during their reserved “sailtime”.
Rounding out a complete Waterfront experience, Patriot Harbor Lines offers visitors the opportunity to see "Philly-by-Boat" with a one-hour harbor cruise. The Harbor Cruise takes place on a reproduction 1920s commuter yacht, offering an intimate setting away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The one-hour cruise departs from the Independence Seaport Museum's dock, and highlights the historic vessels of Penn's Landing, the Battleship New Jersey, Race Street Pier, and many hidden waterfront treasures.
