Welcome to Delaware’s Inland Bays

If you live or vacation in south coastal Delaware…the Inland Bays are right in your backyard! Three shallow bays, the Rehoboth Bay, Indian River Bay and Little Assawoman Bay, lie just behind a narrow spit of land in sight of the Atlantic Ocean. They serve as the backbone of Delaware’s coastal resort area that stretches north to Cape Henlopen, at the mouth of the Delaware Bay, and south to the Town of Fenwick Island and Maryland state line. 

Here at the CIB, it is our mission to preserve, protect and restore Delaware’s Inland Bays, the water that flows into them, and the watershed around them.
