Re: Delaware River Anchorages

Its been about 5 years since I stayed at Philadelphia Marine Center, so my information may be somewhat dated.

Clean marina with good security, clean bathrooms and showers and small laundry area.
Noisy, sandwiched between Dave and Busters and the Ben Franklin Bridge. The bridge noise dominates after Dave and Busters and the neighborhood clubs close.

On the positive side, easy walking access to downtown Philadelphia, Historic Areas, Northern Liberties, good resturants with young creative chefs, Penn's Landing, Festival Pier, Sugar House Casino,....

Good public transit to Ben Franklin Parkway, Art Museum, The Barnes Foundation, Rodin Museum, and a wide selection of live theater and live music.

Be watchful exiting the marina wake protection into the river as barges and tugs come very close to the ends of the piers.

I hear that it's silted pretty bad and to enter other then high tide is touchy for keel boats.

Re: Delaware River Anchorages

A long time ago, I anchored among the moored boats at Riverton Yacht Club and they let me dinghy to the club pier and tie it there, since my brother in law was a member. I stayed there almost a week visiting my mother in Cinnaminson and sister in Riverton (I grew up in Palmyra). It is exposed and the currents are swift but the holding is good. I slept aboard every night and my single 22# Danforth held with no problems in the tide shifts. It is well out of the channel but still open to swells from wakes from ships and tugs. I made the trip up the river from Annapolis in two days, anchoring in the basin on the south side of the canal across from Chesapeake City the first night, then a long day up to Riverton YC. It was fun to visit there by boat.
