About Us

The Cape May-Lewes Ferry travels between Cape May, NJ and Lewes, DE four to fourteen times a day depending on the season to connect two of the most historic and unique sea towns on the Mid-Atlantic. Each vessel can carry approximately 100 standard-sized vehicles and up to 800 passengers, with frequent boarding of RVs, tractor trailers, trade show floats, and mobile homes in transit up and down the eastern seaboard. The journey is one of only two water routes in the U.S. along a numbered roadway, with the Cape May-Lewes Ferry extending Route 9 from New Jersey to Delaware.
