Our family had a very enjoyable sunset cruise on this tour. The crew is very safety conscious, as well as super nice! Please remember to bring your food and drink for a relaxing dinner, as all parties have table seating.

We took a lighthouse tour with Cape Water Tours this week. It was interesting and informative. Kathleen, the tour leader, was friendly and smart and answered all our questions. Be sure to climb to the top of the lighthouse for an amazing view.

We had a very pleasant trip on the DE canal. The guides were very informative. I did not realize just how important this waterway was to the early farming settlers.
