Passengers board the M/V Freedom, a double-decker, air-conditioned sightseeing boat that departs from Camden at 8 p.m. and from Penn's Landing at 8:15 p.m. The vessel then tours the Delaware River for approximately 90 minutes, before it pauses at an ideal spot to watch the fireworks. During the cruise, an abundant cold buffet sates hunger with a large spread of fresh fruit and cheese plates, hummus and vegetable spreads, kid-friendly bites, pies, and decadent desserts. The cruise also includes non-alcoholic drinks. The entire excursion lasts 2.5–3 hours.
Just south of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, the Delaware River bustles with activity. On its western shore lies Philadelphia's waterfront, with destinations such as Penn's Landing. To the east is Camden, which holds its own against the Pennsylvania capital with attractions such as Adventure Aquarium, where Aquaman moonlights as a jellyfish. But perhaps the area's biggest draw is the meeting place between these two locales: the Delaware River itself.
RiverLink Ferry's two-story sightseeing vessel, the M/V Freedom, traverses these waters for sightseeing tours of the waterfront's architecture or fall foliage. The ferry serves a practical purpose as well; it regularly travels point-to-point between Philadelphia and Camden, so commuters can move between the two cities with ease.
