Charter Cruises

In order to fund our primary mission, we also offer charter cruises up and down the Delaware river.  Our typical 2 hours cruises are ideal for private events, or as fund raisers for regional non-profit organizations, such as churches, clubs and veteran groups.

The North Wind Schooner

For over 10 years we have been offering cruises from our berth at  “Freedom Pier” (the old Coast Guard Station) at the foot of Cumberland Street in Gloucester City, NJ.  The vessel is U.S. Coast Guard registered and inspected.

Our Approach

Gloucester City Sail, Inc.

Gloucester City’s Tall Ship, the Schooner North Wind, is home to experiential youth programs and is the premiere sailing charter in the Philadelphia/Camden County area.

The North Wind schooner is operated by Gloucester City Sail, Inc. a non profit organization.  Our primary purpose is to offer youth of the area the opportunity to do science, learn history, and work on the schooner North Wind while sailing on the Delaware River.
