Discover the Bay Tour
Departs from the Lewes Ferry Terminal at
43 Cape Henlopen Drive Lewes Delaware
Come join the crew of The Discovery and cruise the waters of the Delaware Bay to learn about this important coastal estuary. This 90 minute cruise will be led by experienced science educators who will sample the waters of the Bay with nets to reveal small animal plankton, bottom dwelling invertebrates and a variety of fish. This is a hands-on activity so come prepared to get your hands a little bit wet and slimy. This trip is not recommended for young children under the age of 6.
This cruise will also take in the local historical sites such as the lighthouse at the Harbor of Refuge at Cape Henlopen. And, no trip is complete without an opportunity to look for diverse birdlife and water fowl along our shores.
Don't miss out on this outstanding opportunity to see and learn about Delaware's pristine coastal waters and beaches and to learn about the work being done to preserve the delicate eco system within the Delaware Bay. Please note: If the conditions in the bay are unsafe, this cruise will take place in the sheltered waters of the serene Broadkill River with it's scenic shoreline and salt water marshes.
