Our venues are flexible and perfect for smaller, intimate weddings of 20 or fewer, mid-sized weddings, and larger outdoor events for 200 or more. Whether in Lewes or Cape May, our venue options will make your day as special and unique as you are!
The Sunset Lounge
The Sunset Lounge has one of the best views in South Jersey. Set atop the Cape May Terminal with wrap around windows, the room overlooks the bay. In the evening, you and your party can experience the vibrant colors of a Delaware Bay sunset; in the daytime, you and your party will be energized by the clear views and energetic sunlight coming in from every direction.
The Bayside Green
The Bayside Green provides great space for larger parties. Our outdoor green area can accommodate up to 1,500 and tenting can be accommodated. If you're having a big bash, or want an outdoor beach-type wedding sans sand -- this is your answer.
The Southwest Patio
Set on a beautiful grassy field overlooking the water, it does not get much better than the Southwest Patio. In the evening, this patio looks out over the canal and is the ideal spot to watch the sunset. The water makes an epic background for special photo opportunities.
With the overused tagline of "business in the front, party in the back", this venue is great for weddings, business meetings, and more. The back wall is covered in windows, while the front wall is equipped with everything digital you need to run an effective presentation.
We have 3 great event spaces at the Lewes Ferry Terminal, including the Bayside Pier (capacity: 300), The Bayside Green (capacity: 1,500), and the Sunroom (capacity: 40).
The Sunroom, which overlooks the Delaware Bay, is a fun venue for events. The space accommodates 25 - 100 guests and is well-suited for cocktail parties, corporate events, as well as family celebrations. The glass walls create the feel of being outside, while maintaining a controlled (air conditioned!) environment.
The Bayside Green
The Bayside Green is a fantastic option for larger parties. Our outdoor green area can accommodate up to 1,500 and tenting is a strong option for potential weather variables. Our in-house catering staff loves to bring their A-game to this type of party! If you're having a big bash, look no further than the Bayside Green.
The Bayside Pier
If you're looking to host an event on the water, we have to mention that the dockside charm of The Bayside Pier is unbeatable. A perfect venue for weddings, cocktail parties, or casual outdoor gatherings, your celebration will be on the boardwalk surrounded by water, creating a serene and unique ambiance. This is a perfect site for memorable, smaller weddings, or a great photo spot for weddings celebrating inside The Sunroom, or outside on the Green.
When you consider an event at the Cape May-Lewes Ferry, you probably immediately think about hosting an event on the boat. We have one great event space to offer you!
The Crows Nest
Nestled on the top deck of the M/V Delaware, The Crows Nest hosts a private bar and seating for 50 guests. Whether you are looking to host a fancy sit-down dinner or casual family celebration, the Crows Nest offers a picturesque view of the Delaware Bay frequently graced with a beautiful sunset! Availablility is dependent on the sailing schedule, but this is a great option for luncheons, small occasion dinners, and lecture/seminar meetings.
