Sunset River Cruise
Participants will get the chance to view historic Fort Delaware and Pea Patch Island. Being on the river gives a very enlightening perspective to how Fort Delaware, Fort Mott, and Fort DuPont worked together to protect the river passage to Wilmington and Philadelphia from enemy navies. In addition, Pea Patch Island is home to an impressive heron rookery. Nine different species of herons, egrets, and ibis can be seen in and around the herony so we should see a wide variety of wading birds, as well as the chance at some osprey and bald eagles. The cruise offers a beautiful view of the sunset over the Delaware River. Masks are required on the ferry at all times. Food and beverages are permitted on the ferry, but please leave pets and alcoholic beverages at home.
