Dreamer, Captain David Green, opened Cape Water Tours, originally named Cape Water Taxi,  in 2012 as a water taxi service, and has transformed it into primarily a tour company seeking to share the natural beauty of southern Delaware’s breathtaking shorelines, lush grassy marshlands, and fascinating ecology with locals and visitors of the Delaware beaches.

Our family operated company provides public boat tours and cruises, private charters and limited water taxi service. 

With about 20 different PUBLIC TOURS AND CRUISES to choose from, curious minds can book one of our narrated, educational tours or simply take in a sunset, experience the thrill of seeing dolphins in their natural habitat, or listen to local musicians share their gift of song on a Live Music Cruise.

Our PRIVATE CHARTERS can accommodate groups of up to 50 guests on the Escape and up to 100 guests on the Second Nature and can be customized to serve your needs and celebrations. Bring your favorite food, drinks and friends or family and let us show you the views we love so much.

Our WATER TAXI SERVICE is just a small but unique part of what we do and is a relaxing and fun way to get from Lewes to Rehoboth Beach without the hassle of traffic. This service runs on a predetermined schedule and offers our guests an opportunity to visit Rehoboth Beach’s shops, restaurants and boardwalk.

Our operating season is generally May through September with a few tours in October and November, weather permitting. We also offer Seal & Bird Watching once a month during the off season. 

Many say the best part about Cape Water Tours is the people. We can’t wait to welcome you onboard. Our crew is passionate about our mission to create memorable experiences with you and our vision of inspiring you to…
