Get your weekend off to a rockin' start this summer! After all, if it's a Friday afternoon in late summer, it's time for Rock The Boat!

Friday afternoons through early September, catch Delaware's Premier Rock N' Roll Party Band, Glass Onion, performing on the 4:15 pm departure from Lewes and the return 6:00 pm departure from Cape May! 

Bar service is available via the Lido Bars and satellite bars during Rock the Boat cruises. The Lido Bars accept cash and cards, but the satellite bars are cash only. If you're comfortable carrying cash, having some on hand will help our bartenders keep things sailing smoothly!
