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. 

The Inland Bays watershed area also extends west to the headwater streams of Indian River and other tributaries, surrounded by the farm fields, millponds and marshes of Sussex County, Delaware. The area features a beautiful and truly unique natural landscape so get outside and explore your Inland Bays
