Tour with us!

Quest has been paddling the waters of Delaware's Cape region since 1999, and our years of experience with the tides, winds, and shifting sands of the area allow us to help plan the best paddles in the area. We offer a variety of tours for all ages and abilities that emphasize safety, fun, nature, and a local's knowledge.


We use Ocean Kayak sit-on-top kayaks which offer stability, ease of paddling, adjustable backrests for comfort, and plenty of leg room. Our personal flotation devices (PFDs) or life jackets are USCG approved and fully adjustable for youth and adults.

We limit the size of tours for safety and allow for an enhanced tour experience. For larger group sizes (typically groups of 12+ paddlers), please contact us at or (302) 430-8687. We are happy to work with you to help customize your tour experience.

Quest Core Tours


Dolphin Tour 

Paddle up close and personal with the Atlantic Bottle Nose Dolphins.  This tour starts and finishes at Cape Henlopen State Park.  During this tour, we paddle from the Delaware Bay, around the Cape Henlopen Point (conditions permitting) and sometimes into the Atlantic Ocean.  We can’t guarantee seeing Dolphins, but we try our best to be in the right spot to do so.  Besides hopefully seeing some dolphins, we paddle by a few lighthouses that have guided and protected our boats for over 100 years.  


::Level of Difficulty - Moderate

::Duration - 1.5 ~ 2 hours


Sunset Sessions

One of our personal favorites, Sunset Sessions varies as does the setting of the sun. We take advantage of the tide allow time to take in the setting sun.  This trip includes paddling on the Delaware Bay and the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal. 


::Level of Difficulty - Easy

::Duration - 2 ~ 2.5 hours


Lighthouse and kayaks

Bay Trippin'

We offer this paddle from various locations depending on tide/winds, but the locations are typically all within Lewes.  Sometimes we might paddle the Breakwater and take in some history and other times we might meander along the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal or a local creek enjoying local flora and fauna.  We let nature help us guide this one.   


::Level of Difficulty - Easy to Moderate

::Duration - 2 ~ 2.5 hours
