Starting the end of September thru mid November, our cruise to Milton is a 4.5-hour tour (approximately 1.5 hours each way) and covers 13 miles of the Broadkill River. We depart from 213 Anglers Road in Lewes and sail to the docks at Milton Memorial Park and back. To fully take advantage of fall foliage, come onboard in late October or November.

The Broadkill River flows for its entire length in eastern Sussex County. From Milton, the Broadkill River flows generally eastwardly, passing through wetlands and salt marshes of the Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge. While we are cruising, take a moment to scan the wetlands surrounding you. These are home to hundreds of animals, many of which you might see with the naked eye and better yet, through binoculars. You will definitely want to bring your camera and your favorite beverage.

Hungry? Call ahead and order lunch from Irish Eyes Pub and Restaurant (optional) on Union Street along the shore of the Broadkill River (302-684-8889). Once we reach the docks in Milton, you may disembark for approximately 45 minutes to pick up your lunch, look around Milton and re-board our vessel for the ride home while you enjoy your lunch and favorite beverage.
