Where to Meet:

The dock is located on the Center City side of the Schuylkill right off of Walnut Street. Look for a white commuter yacht that says Patriot on the side – that’s the one! There are parking garages located on and off of Walnut Street, including Park America at 12 South 23rd Street. If you are lost or running late, please call (267) 908-3076.

What to Wear:

Comfortable clothing is always a good choice, especially layers and windbreakers, but you are welcome to wear whatever you like. Dress appropriately for the weather, and keep in mind that temperatures are often significantly cooler out on the water than those on land.

What/What Not to Bring:

Sunglasses (it’s usually brighter on the water), a camera, and snacks are always a good idea. Please do not bring your own alcohol. Alcoholic beverages are sold on all trips. Also, remember sunscreen, wind-breakers, and layers depending on weather.

Other Tips and Guidelines:

Check in 20-30 minutes early at the boat. The schooner leaves on time and cannot come back to pick you up if you are late. No refunds or reschedules will be provided for late arrivals.

Activity may be Cancelled due to Severe Weather:

The activity usually runs in light rain and other moderate weather conditions, but Patriot Harbor Lines may cancel the activity up to an hour before the start time in the event of severe or unsafe weather conditions. If Patriot Lines cancels the event, AIChE DelVal will attempt to reschedule the tour at a later date. If this is not possible, or if you are unable to attend the alternate date, AIChE DelVal will issue you a refund for the ticket. No-shows to the event are a donation to AIChE DelVal.
