Join us for an hour and a half-long cruise up the Delaware River onboard the Delafort Ferry to experience the unique natural and historical resources along the Delaware River. 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 heronry, so we should see a wide variety of wading birds, and perhaps some osprey and bald eagles. This cruise offers a beautiful view of the setting sun.
