Delta Tour Zeeland was a road bicycle stage race held annually in June in Zeeland, Netherlands. In 2008, the race was organized as a 2.1 event on the UCI Europe Tour as the organizers of the one-day race Delta Profronde and of the OZ Wielerweekend operated a fusion to create the stage race. The first winner of the race was the Australian Christopher Sutton and the last was German Marcel Kittel.[1]

In 2012, it was renamed Ronde van Zeeland Seaports, coming back to its one-day race roots with a 1.1 ranking on the UCI Europe Tour.
