Kayak Excursions & Paddle Penn’s Landing Return to The Independence Seaport Museum This Summer

If you’re looking to make some summer plans with friends or looking for a cool date idea, you may be interested in the on-water programing at the Independence Seaport Museum (ISM).  Kayak Excursions and Paddle Penn’s Landing, are both launching in May. Additionally, the Museum is unveiling a new after-hours, pirate-themed program, taking guests on seven different swashbuckling adventures. Due to popular demand, ISM will also expand visiting hours and tour availability of its historic ships, Cruiser Olympia and Submarine Becuna, to provide guests additional opportunities to discover Philadelphia’s river of history and world of connections.

Kayak Excursions

Kayak Excursions begin May 8 and continue on select weekends through October 22. Guests can choose from six specially curated tours designed to give unique perspectives of the Delaware River. Excursions range between three to ten miles and offer beginner to advanced options. Destinations include Three Sisters Shipwreck, Graffiti Pier, and Petty’s Island. ISM is also unveiling two new Kayak Excursions this spring, including a sunset happy hour Skyline Paddle or a visit to The Back Channel Boneyard in Camden, New Jersey. The new excursions add to the variety of experiences guests can choose from, offering Instagrammable moments and sights that can only be found on the Delaware River. Each guided paddle trip range from $50 to $85 per person. Tickets must be purchased in advance and can be found HERE.

Paddle Penn’s Landing

Beginning May 28, Paddle Penn’s Landing will reopen, allowing visitors to enjoy an afternoon of fun under the sun paddling around the Penn’s Landing basin in a kayak, rowboat, and paddleboat. The paddleboats are the perfect outdoor recreational activity for a family of four, with a choice of a swan, flamingo, yellow duck, or dragon boat! New additions to the fleet this year include two new swans, Cherry and Mango, sponsored by Rita’s Italian Ice. Summer hours are Monday through Friday, 3 p.m. to dusk, and Saturday and Sunday, noon to dusk through September 5. All Paddle Penn’s Landing activities are $12 per person for a half-hour rental. Visitors are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance on
ISM’s website.

Deck-to-Deck Tours

After a brief hiatus, ISM and Battleship New Jersey are excited to announce the return of Deck-to-Deck Tours, an experience where visitors are able to discover nearly 100 years of naval history through guided tours of three remarkable ships. Embark on a three-hour, guided tour through Battleship New Jersey, Submarine Becuna, and Cruiser Olympia to get an up-close look at prime naval ingenuity that includes light refreshments served at ISM.
