** We are currently taking reservations by phone 302-644-7334. Please have your credit card information ready when calling.

** Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are required to have our guests wear face coverings while boarding and until seated on our vessel. We will also be pre assigning seats to allow for social distancing between groups of guests.

** The following applies only to guests wishing to sit alone. In our efforts to practice social distancing, we will have strict capacity limitations making it more difficult to cover our operating costs, therefore, we are unable to allow reservations at the single rider price at this time. You may, however, make a reservation as a single rider by purchasing 2 seats (Does not apply to private charters). If you will be sitting with a group and simply wish to pay separately YOU MAY pay the single guest price. Thank you for your support and understanding during these temporary challenges.

**Your health is important to us, and we have put special measures in place to keep all guests safe.

Face Coverings – Guests will wear face coverings until seated on our vessel. You may bring snacks & beverages to enjoy onboard. Crew members will also wear face coverings unless narrating a tour at a safe distance from guests.

Leave Your Worries at the Dock

Whether this is your first or 500th visit to the Delaware beaches, you will never have a better view of the uniqueness of the southern Delaware waterways than the view you get when you are on one of the cruises or water tours offered by Captain David Green & his family and the crew of Cape Water Tours and Taxi.

Knowledgeable captains and crew members take you out on the Discovery or the Escape in comfort and style. Once on board, experience the panoramic views of our shorelines, the wonderfully lush landscape of our grassy marshlands, our local water life and birdlife, and the rich history of what was once a major shipping canal for transporting crops and commodities up and down the rivers to major ports such as Philadelphia and Wilmington.

Imagine seeing all that with no traffic, no lines, and no crowds of people to dodge.
