Excursion Package

Ferry Fun & Lower Township Fireworks!
See This Year's Fireworks from the Bay

On Tuesday, 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 as a foot passenger and enjoy sailing out to cooler bay breezes, and preparing for the big event while listening to live musical entertainment from Bachman & Polk, featuring special guest John King. Bachman & Polk are a high-energy Orlando-based music duo playing hit songs from every generation and sure to get you in the mood for the celebration. 

Fireworks are always spectacular, but make this year's celebration extra-special with new up-closer views from the water on board the Ferry. 

Early bird prices for tickets for the cruise are $50 for adults and $35 for children under the age of 12 if purchased by May 31, 2023. 

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.

  • 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!
