Embark on a Marine Biology Adventure
Cruise the waters of the Delaware Bay with the crew of Cape Water Tours and our experienced science educators to learn about this important coastal estuary. Participate with us as Delaware Bay waters are sampled 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 wet and slimy.
We pull a large otter trawl net to bring on board and examine marine animals. This cruise is also a great opportunity to take in the sites, including the diverse birdlife and waterfowl living along the bay shore, and local historical sites including the Harbor of Refuge Lighthouse at Cape Henlopen. There is always a very good chance we will see dolphins swimming in the bay -sometimes even right next to our vessel!
Don’t miss out on this chance to see and learn about Southern Delaware’s pristine coastal waters and beaches and to learn about the work being done to preserve the delicate ecosystem within the Delaware Bay.
