“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

Spent Saturday evening, 9/7 on a 4 hour cruise with 24 friends. Had a blast! Capt. Steve and Rich were wonderful. Very knowledgeable and just plain fun! Music was great...sunset was awesome...had a great time. We all said we will do this again. Thank you Capt Dave, Capt Steve and Rich for a unique and awesome experience. See you next year for our annual cruise!

“Really enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

What a fun service! My group went on the sunset cruise out of Lewes, and we had a really nice time.

The trip is a BYOB affair, so we carried on a couple of bottles of wine and some crackers, cheese, and fruit. It was perfect! Our crew really did a terrific job of socializing and helping to make a cruise a lot of fun.

If you're looking to have a relaxing (and reasonably priced) bit of fun one evening, I highly recommend going on the sunset cruise with the Cape Water Taxi folks.

“Simply Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

This company really knows what customer satisfaction is. And, the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal is something that everybody who visits southern Delaware must experience. It is just beautiful, plenty of wild life, a calm ride and beautiful homes and scenic grasslands. Captain Steve is very knowledgable about the eco system, knows every bird out there and can tell you anything you need to know about them. You get a 90 minute narrated tour for $20...can't beat that anywhere. You have to try it.

“Amazing Sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

We took the Sunset Cruise, which is aptly named. The boat leaves Fisherman's Wharf in Lewes and leisurely travels a portion of the Broadkill River. It is a scenic trip that first passes docked boats and residences, and then mostly river grasses and other vegetation on either side of the water. We saw a number of osprey on our hour and a half trip. The highlight, however, is the glorious sunset. It is truly amazing.

We brought some snacks and wine and sat at one of the tables. While the ship is underway you can walk around and stand by the rails to get an even better view if desired.
