A relaxing ride aboard this paddlewheel boat offers beautiful scenery and a boats-eye view of the Delaware River’s varied wildlife. Make sure to ask the driver about the area’s importance as a colonial ferry crossing (Coryell’s Ferry has been operating in the area since 1733), including the story about General George Washington’s crossing.

The boat departs daily at 11 a.m. from May to September. A Seniors special is offered on Tuesday, and Kids day is Wednesday. Buy your tickets at Gerenser’s Exotic Ice Cream on Main Street.

Come Prepared

Rides leave at 11 a.m., May-September.
