Delaware Seashore State Park Offers Guided Kayak Tours Of Rehoboth Bay

by Dave on August 2, 2009

Nature abounds in Delaware Seashore State Park! This summer, the park is offering guided kayak tours through creeks around the salt marsh islands of Rehoboth Bay. Join park naturalists as they enjoy watching ospreys, herons and egrets, nesting gulls, diamondback terrapins and other marine life.

Rehoboth Bay kayak trips are offered at 9:30 a.m. each Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday continuing through the end of August.  The cost is $30 per person.  Participation is limited and pre-registration is required.

Participants will depart from Savages’ Ditch Road after receiving basic instruction on kayaking skills and safety. All boating equipment is provided.  Visitors will need to bring a supply of drinking water as well as wear close-toed shoes, clothes that can get wet, sunglasses, and sunscreen.  Participants must be 13 years of age or older.

This is a unique opportunity to view the beauties of nature that are supported by the salt marsh environment and the waters of Rehoboth Bay.  Participants will view nesting osprey and a variety of gull species.  Kayaks will glide near diamondback terrapins and various shellfish, as well as a broad variety of aquatic vegetation.

Delaware Seashore State Park provides sit-on-top kayaks for this trip, which are easy to learn how to use, so those new to kayaking are encouraged to participate.  Trips will involve about one and a half hours of paddling, the exact time depending on tide conditions.  Please call 302-227-6991 to register or for more information on this or other programs offered in Delaware Seashore State Park.
