Fun Ferry Cruise #125 and Counting
Jim Johnson of Bridgeville, Delaware took his 122nd trip on the Cape May - Lewes Ferry early in the summer of 2017. He began eagerly anticipating and planning for cruise #125. Sure enough, on September 29th, 2017 Johnson hit the milestone, one of a growing number of ferry frequent travelers.
The ferry loves its frequent travelers, and we have many of them. Some folks even travel with us more than 125 times in a single year! We sell 6 pack and 12 pack discounted tickets for frequent travelers and you can get more information about these here. And we even have Ferry VIPs who travel at least 50 times a year and qualify for additional amenities.
Johnson’s ferry tale dates all the way back to 1965, our 2nd year of operation, when he took his first cruise across the Delaware Bay. He loves being on the water and soon grew to love his trips on the ferry. He has relatives in North Cape May whom he regularly visits, and also loves to take the ferry as a relaxing break when traveling farther north.
A self-described “serial planner,” Johnson kept track of all his ferry journeys dating back to his childhood in a notebook. More recently, he has kept all his ferry ticket stubs as mementos of his ferry adventures.
Bonnie, Jim’s wife accompanied him on his landmark 125th cruise. Her ferry tales stretch back many years as well. Jim thought a ferry ride was so special that he chose one back in 1990 to propose to Bonnie! The ferry is a romantic way to travel, and takes you back to a simpler, less hectic way of life. We love to host weddings, engagements, and other special occasions. For more information on hosting your event at the ferry, please visit here.
The Johnsons enjoy getting together with friends on the ferry. They come on board a few times every summer for the Ferry’s Rock the Boat musical cruises. These roundtrip excursions include live bands, beautiful sunsets, cool bay breezes, refreshing beverages, and lots of fun. Learn more about Ferry Excursions here. Jim and Bonnie planned for Jim’s special 125th cruise to coincide with a Rock the Boat cruise featuring one of their favorite local bands, Glass Onion. A good time was had by all, and Jim is reportedly already at work on his next 125 Ferry Fun Cruises!
