We took the evening bay cruise and enjoyed it a great deal. It had been an oppressively hot day, and getting out on the water was a great way to relax and cool down. Views of the sunset and lighthouse were lovely, and the crew was very personable, taking pictures for customers and letting children have a turn at steering... More

Think you've done all there is to do at the beach? Then spend the evening on one of the Cape Water tours out the Broadkill River or out the Delaware Bay and you'll know that you've been missing something pretty fantastic. The best kept secret at the beach!

even though it was a hot day,the boat ride was so calming and actually quite cooler. I took my friend and her grandson with me and we all had a wonderful time learning about the birds and all the other creatures.

Great Trip, staff was extremely courteous and helpful. We will be back again real soon. The cruise lasted ninety minutes, left and arrived on schedule. The sites along the canal were very peaceful and picturesque. Enjoyed the trip.

Hats off to captain Dave! We were on the sunset cruise, but lightning was on the forecast. He took us on an alternate route, which was calming and peaceful. Great decision by captain Dave!

Our family of 6 (Mom, Dad, daughter, 11, twin boys, 6 and Grandma) went on the Broadkill River Evening/Sunset Cruise on Thursday, July 21. The Captain and First Mate were very friendly, attentive, even carried a wheelchair on board for a passenger. It was great to sit back and relax while taking in the beautiful scenery through the harbor and... More

We had so much fun taking the water taxi from Lewes to Dewey. The lighting on he grass was beautiful on the way down. We had plenty of time to grab dinner and a drink in Dewey before we got back on the water taxi at 9.

The Park representatives were enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The initial start was considered boring by my teen kids but they ended up enjoying the tour and ride.
