Bike Path Cape Henlopen

Bicycle Travel

Bicycle Travel Has Resumed!

Ready, set, pedal! Bicycle travel is now available on all departures. 

Please note: RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED, as are masks when you're in indoor areas aboard the vessel. While we always recommend reservations, requiring them - especially for those pedaling aboard - is a step we've implemented to help protect everyone involved, and one we want to make sure you're aware of. 

Book online, or give us a call at 800.643.3779. And don't worry, if the weather ends up taking a turn for the worse and you don't want to ride the day of your reservation, your tickets are valid for 2 years from the date of purchase. Just give us a call and we'll help you reschedule. 


Arriving at the Terminal

Both terminals are open, and the bicycle check-in process is the same as it has been in the past. Here's what that entails:

  • Please park in the foot passenger parking lots, and enter the terminals to check-in at the ticket counter.
  • Once you've checked in and received your ticket, please proceed to the bicycle staging area, located outside the terminal and marked with a sign. In Cape May, this is located at the front of the staging lanes, where the terminal sidewalk leads to the vessel boarding ramps. In Lewes, this is located just out front of the terminal, also where the terminal sidewalk leads to the vessel boards ramps, and marked by a sign. 
  • Please arrive a minimum of 30 minutes prior to your departure time.

Boarding the Vessel

To board, you'll leave the staging area and walk your bicycle up the loading ramp onto the car deck, where racks are available.

Once on board, you're welcome to access the exterior decks of the vessel or the indoor salon area, just please remember that masks are required indoors (unless eating or drinking), and that social distancing guidlelines remain in place.
