Job Opportunities at the Cape May - Lewes Ferry
Join our crew - for both land and sea positions! The Cape May-Lewes Ferry employs people in a wide range of posts with varied experiences and skill sets from ordinary seamen to bartenders, customer service reps to marine engineers.
We have summer, casual and part-time positions available, as well as full-time, salaried positions. The Ferry runs year-round, so there are open positions throughout the year. If you don't see the exact spot you want now, check back throughout the year.
Did you know you don't always need prior experience to start at some jobs at the Ferry? Many crew and landside positions allow you to learn on the job, and working during the season is a great way to test if you like working in marine transportation while learning about marine career opportunities. Several local men and women who never previously considered careers outside of the more traditional fields of hospitality, education and health care found they truly loved work on or by the water once they started working at the Ferry.

Able Bodied (AB Seamen)
Did you know that we train on-the-job for many of the positions at the Ferry? That includes training prior landlubbers the ropes in becoming marine crew -- starting as ordinary seaman and gaining the knowledge to potentially rise through the ranks.
In marine lingo - that's called being a Hawsepiper. Two of our captains first started with us in food & retail positions before moving on board as marine crew. Could you be next?
