Design Your Own River Adventure
With Victoria Guidi, Jesus Castro, & Patrick McGettigan of Philadelphia Wooden Boat Factory

You better get your sea legs—or river legs, rather—to go on this voyage. This season, Victoria, Jesus, and Patrick will meet you for coffee and bring along a river chart; together, you’ll design an afternoon of rowing, racing, or eco-touring. Then when the weather gets warm, they’ll fit you for a lifejacket, share their sunscreen, and take you out for an aquatic adventure!

Bring a small group of your friends (and a picnic!) aboard one of the beautiful Factory One-Design boats that has been meticulously crafted by their team of teenage apprentices. Then the Philadelphia Wooden Boat Factory team will use the course you’ve charted to bring you on a tour of the Delaware River, showcasing the Philadelphia waterfront in a way you’ve never seen it before!
