Lewes * Maritime History TrailMarine pilots know the shoals, lumps, and ledges of the Delaware intimately. They know the bends of the dredged channel, the characteristics of every lighthouse and range light, and the location of wrecks. They understand tides and currents and the weather at sea. And they can put it all together to safely guide ships 100 miles from the Atlantic Ocean to the ports of Wilmington, Philadelphia, and Trenton.
