While these past few months have arguably left something to be desired, these events across the Delaware beaches demonstrate that it is never too late to have some traditional summer fun with a few precautions. With a little over a month left of the season, here are some summer activities to check out before fall arrives.

Burton’s Island Wildlife Tours

Need to soak up the last few weeks of the summer sunshine? We have you covered! Grab a kayak and paddle through salt marsh trails around a wildlife refuge with Burton’s Island Wildlife Tours. Guided by a certified kayak guide, visitors will experience the tranquility of the marshes and get to know the animals who live there, such as horseshoe crabs, oyster catchers, osprey, skimmers, herons and egrets.
