Public Cruises on the Packet

Unless there is a private charter scheduled, the River Packet runs regularly scheduled Public Cruises on Thursday evening, Friday evening, Saturday afternoon and evening, and Sunday morning for brunch from April through December. Enjoy a leisurely trip down the Chester River with friends, relaxing on the overhead deck or snuggled down in the spacious gallery. Some cruises include food, but there is a cash bar available for all trips.

Please Note: Public Cruises may be canceled if there is an insufficient number of tickets sold, due to inclement weather, or if someone charters the boat for a private event. Please check our Cruise Calendar for the latest information or call 410-635-0321.
