Excursion Package

Ferry Fun & Fireworks!
See This Year's Lewes fireworks from the Bay

On Thursday, July 4, the Ferry will depart Cape May Terminal and cruise across the Delaware Bay to give guests a totally new view of the fireworks from out on the water. Come on board and get a front-row seat and a bay view to enjoy this year's Lewes, DE 4th of July fireworks show aboard the Cape May – Lewes Ferry! Enjoy live entertainment along with food and beverages available for purchase on board. 

The tickets for the cruise are $55 for adults and $40 for children under the age of 12.

Book early, as Fireworks cruises always sell out. Since this is a first-time event, this cruise is expected to sell out at the Early Bird rate. 

REMEMBER: This cruise departs from and returns to the Cape May Terminal and does not dock in Lewes. Attendees will be viewing the Lewes, DE, Fireworks show from the Water.



Still thinking about it?  

  • Where else do you get to see fireworks and have access to onboard food, beverages, and bathrooms instead of porta-a-potties? 
  • How often have you gotten to see fireworks from the water?
  • And, where else do you get parking easily on July 4 and have the roads cleared by the time you head home after the fireworks?
  • All parking for the cruise at the Cape May terminal, as for all ferry rides, is free!
