In 1718, King George I granted John Wells, the founder of New Hope, a license to operate the first ferry, known as "Wells Ferry".
Wells Ferry Boat Rides is located behind the The Landing Restaurant, on Main Street in the heart of New Hope.
We operate many weekdays and every weekend, weather permitting, from May through October. Our River Boat Tour departs weekends every hour on the hour from NOON to 7 PM. Please call 215-205-1140 to check for departure times during the week.
We welcome all groups and organizations from school field trips, day care and camps, to retirement villages. We pride ourselves in making your outing pleasurable and affordable.
