Delaware Watertrails

Delaware Nanticoke Water Trail

Eagles, osprey, marshes and cypress swamps. The Nanticoke offers all that and more along more than 60 miles from its headwaters in Delaware south to Tangier Sound in Dorchester County, Maryland. Much of the land along the river corridor is undeveloped and privately owned, but portions of private land are protected by non-profit organizations and state and local parks. As such, the river corridor is ideal for wildlife including migratory birds. Bass fishing, boating, kayaking, and canoeing are also popular.
