Do you have the urge to take a break from the beach or the hustle and bustle of your daily routine?  Why not board a Cape Water Tours and Taxi vessel at Fisherman’s Wharf in Lewes and take a relaxing ride to Dewey Beach and back on our Final Water Taxi Trip?

Completed in 1927, the canal, which is about 10 miles long, connects the Delaware and Rehoboth Bays.  As stated on the sign posted by the bridge over the Canal in Rehoboth, the Canal was initially a means of access to the sea for farmers and saw mills along the Indian River and the Bay.  Today, it is used by commercial and pleasure boats and provides access to the Delaware Bay, the Rehoboth Bay, and Indian River Inlet.  This  is not narrated however, the crew will be happy to answer any questions you have about the canal.

 We depart Lewes' Fisherman's Wharf at 5:30PM . Once under way, we will travel south down the scenic Lewes-Rehoboth canal and across the Rehoboth Bay for an arrival at the Rusty Rudder dock in Dewey Beach about an hour + later. Please be aware that the pier at the Rusty Rudder is almost 600 feet long. Due to recent changes made to the dock by the Rusty Rudder, there may be a few steps to walk through ankle deep water (depending on the tide).  If you have mobility issues, this may not be the trip for you.

   Once in Dewey, passengers disembark for about 2 hours to enjoy restaurants and/or shops in Dewey. The return trip leaves Dewey at 8:45 pm and arrives back in Lewes by about 10:00 pm.  This trip is NOT NARRATED.
