Here are the 8 best sightseeing tours in Delaware.

You will find panoramic ocean views, rocky shorelines flush with wildlife, grassy marshlands, and pastoral landscapes, all from the safety and comfort of the water taxi.

See Delaware from a whole new perspective. Coastal Kayak has been offering tours and instructions since 1994. From the back bays of Rehoboth Beach to Bethany Beach and Assateague Island, CK has over 125 kayaks, 50 paddle boards, and six catamaran sailboats. The sights and sounds of Delaware’s waterways have never been so intimate, so come see wild ponies, stands of rare trees, birdlife, and more. 

Wilmington & Western Railroad, Wilmington DE

Whether you are a repeat visitor or a Delaware newbie, you have never seen the state like this. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Wilmington & Western Railroad is Delaware's only museum on wheels. Take a ride through the state’s backcountry on a steam and diesel beast. Explore forgotten towns and tracks as you lumber along the rails through the Red Clay Valley.

Pirates of Lewes Expedition, Lewes, DE

Ahoy, matey! You have just uncovered a “swashbuckling pirate adventure of fantasy and fun.” You and your family will enjoy an islands tour featuring water cannons, painted faces, sailor sashes, treasure maps, sunken booty, and more.  Follow your Captain as he spins yarns of local Lewes pirate history, Blackbeard, Blue Skin, and Captain Kidd. Take the Pirate’s Oath and do the pirate dance as you search for sunken treasure.

Dover International Speedway, Dover, DE

If the only sightseeing you want to do is on a NASCAR racetrack, then this entry is for you. The Dover International Speedway (formerly Dover Downs International Speedway) is a one-mile concrete oval, with 24-degree banking in the turns. Built in 1969, the track was nicknamed “The Monster Mile” because of the toll it took on drivers and their cars. Come experience the monster for yourself by booking four to 50 laps in a real race car.

Dewey Beach Parasail, Dewey Beach, DE

Dewey Beach Parasail has maintained a perfect safety record for over a decade. With vessels inspected annually by the Coast Guard, attention to detail and safety are the top priorities at DBP. Peacefully glide through the air high above the water and view the Delaware beaches as never before.

From local breweries to vineyards, farms, and historical sites, Delmarva Discovery Tours will get you beyond the beaches. Discover hidden gems and local culture, while being shuttled in plush vans and cars along the way. Choose from tours like the “Wine and Garden Tour,” the “Family Farm Tour,” or one of their award-winning “Eco Tours” and discover Delaware.

The Jolly Trolley, Rehoboth Beach, DE

Established in 1970 as the original “tour and transportation system for Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach,” the system is now privately owned and maintained. Using fun, colorful, and unique modes of transportation services, the Jolly Trolley does it all, from public transportation and charter services to private cars and weddings.
