We’ve crossed the Delaware many times to shop in Lewes or have Lunch for the day and came back on the return ferry during the same day. You are almost sure to see dolphins following the ship on the Jersey or Delaware side which makes for a great picture session. Once you depart from the ferry dock, and your car is secured you can explore the Ferry Boat for a better view, catch some rays on the deck, check out the gift shop, have lunch or even get refreshments on board.
The 17-mile, 85-minute cruise between New Jersey and Delaware can cut miles off a trip along the Atlantic Coast, connecting points like Wildwood, Stone Harbor, Avalon, Ocean City and the rest of the Jersey Shore with Rehoboth Beach, Dewey Beach, Sussex Shores, Bethany Beach, Fenwick Island, Ocean City, MD, and destinations throughout Virginia. The welcoming, modern terminals are a destination in and of themselves, with enjoyable restaurants and lounges, and well-stocked gift shops!
