ABOUT YOUR PRIVATE CRUISE

What do you provide?

We provide two coolers full of ice, cups, plates, and utensils. Our vessel is BYO drinks, for guests 21+. Given the nature of a moving vessel canned and premixed drinks are recommended. Things like hard seltzers and beer are great, no red wine please.

No outside food, please. Catering, from one of our listed partners, can be added to your cruise during check out. Changed your mind and want to add catering!? No problem! Email us with trip info and request. All request must be made a minimum of 72 hrs. before your cruise.

Is there a bathroom on board?

Yes, we have a marine toilet located in our berth. Our bathroom is fully functional but a much different experience than a standard bathroom. Everyone must sit - yes even men. There are standard bathrooms located at both of our pick up locations, we recommend using them before starting your trip.

 

We will be sure to review how to use it before embarking on our cruise. Welcome to boating!

What should I wear/what do I bring?

You and up to five of your family and friends are welcome aboard ARGONAUT. On the water, the temperatures are always a few degrees cooler, in the morning and at night, be sure to have an extra layer for those times. Our boat provides part shade but we recommend sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses.

 

You look great in those stilettos but on a dock or in a boat they are a spike that will get stuck - not cute. Please wear flat sole shoes.

 

Our bow is perfect for sunbathing. On our 2 hr and 4 hr cruise we allow swimming. Bring your own towels. We recommend you come dressed in swimwear as our restroom cabin is small and makes changing difficult.

Is there parking available?

There is metered street parking on Columbus Blvd as well as paid lot parking in The Waterfront Parking lot adjacent to the Seaport Museum for cruises in Penns Landing.

 

Bartrams Garden parking is available in the Bartrams lot during their open hours.

Uber and Lyft are always a great option to avoid the hassle of parking.
