We had a very relaxing fun time on our sunset tour, just something different for date night. Our crew, Maddie and Leah were awesome and made sure everyone was comfortable. We already plan to do the haunted lighthouse tour with Cape Water Tours next season!

This was advertised as the" Eerie Canal Haunted Tour " ! Had it been a clearer evening we would have enjoyed an outstanding sunset as well as a almost Full Moon rise!! The hour and a half tour was a nice slow trip up and back the Lewes/Rehoboth canal. The whole time we had a local gentleman from the historical society narrate spooky stories about the history of the area. It was enjoyed by all, young and old onboard! Best thing is you bring your own snacks and beverages! Some made baked dishes and others desserts! The crew even supplied a spiced cider and cookies! It was well worth the cost!! Great Captain (Dave) and Crew! They also provide other types of cruises, look them up!!

We are so glad you enjoyed the trip! Our narrator does a great job and glad everyone enjoyed the stories and facts about the area. Food is always welcome aboard our vessels, even Captain's famous apple cider - which it sounds like everyone enjoyed. Hope to see you next season!

So glad we got to do the sunset cruise of the intercostal area. I think, it might have been even better than the Bay cruise would have been, but will plan on coming back for that another time. The Captain and crew were wonderful. Really appreciated the restaurant recommendation following the cruise.

We have had several amazing cruises with Cape Water Tours! It’s a fun trip, bring your own food and drinks, listen to music and enjoy the view! Some cruises have live music, check their calendar. Several trips on the Delaware Bay we have enjoyed watching the dolphins and the sunset. Our last trip was on the canal as the Bay would have been to rough.
