Cape May Boat Ride Past the Cape May Ferry and Lighthouse

Passing the Cape May Tiny Ferry in the Cape May Canal

Summer Boat Ride Into The Cape May Canal from Lewes Delaware

Last summer we took a boat ride around the tip of Cape May, we traveled across to Lewes Delaware and entered back into the Cape May Harbor via the Cape May Canal. The Canal has a great safe entrance and is well marked for all local boaters in Cape May. Overall we had a great day, smooth flat water and we picked up some Dolphins off shore will making the round by the Cape May Lighthouse.

We apologize for the shaky video, this was shot from a iPhone from the Fly bridge of the Boat while entering the Cape May Canal. For more information on Cape May please visit our Cape May Resort site.


Here’s a few images from our summer trip taken from the Boat on the way back to the Cape May Canal from Delaware. You will have to be careful of the Cape May Ferry Boats during the busy summer, once you pass the terminal entrance you will enter into the Cape May Canal which is flat and provides quick access to Cape May Harbor. Don’t forget to stop by to Lobster House for a Dock and Dine in Cape May or many local boaters are visiting the Harbor View Marina, which normally has outdoor entertainment during the summer months and transient dock space. If you are looking to fuel up again try, Cape May Marina visit Utsch’s Marina, which both have very easy access off the Intercoastal Waterway.

Cape May–Lewes Ferry officials said ferry service will return to normal schedule on Wednesday, Oct. 31.

LEWES, Del.- Cape May–Lewes Ferry officials said ferry service will return to normal schedule on Wednesday, Oct. 31.

Officials said that on Tuesday morning they inspected the infrastructure at both the Cape May and Lewes ferry terminals, as well as each ferry vessel. No damage has been reported.

Early Tuesday afternoon, the United States Coast Guard completed its assessment of the Delaware River for debris and remaining navigational aids and issued clearance for the MV Cape May to depart the Holt Marine Terminal, Gloucester City, N.J. at 1 p.m. and return to Cape May New, NJ. The MV Delaware and MV New Jersey followed shortly thereafter.

“We will operate our normal ferry schedule tomorrow with the first ferry departing Cape May at 7:30 a.m.,” said Heath Gehrke, director of ferry operations. “We were very fortunate that our facilities were relatively unscathed.”

On Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 27-28, CMLF marine personnel transported all five ferries upriver for the safety of the vessels. The MV Twin Capes, MV Cape May, MV Delaware, MV New Jersey, and MV Cape Henlopen were docked at Holt Marine Terminal in Gloucester City, N.J., to ride out Hurricane Sandy.

Travelers who plan to use the Cape May-Lewes Ferry are advised to call toll free at (800) 643-3779, visit the CMLF online at www.cmlf.com or friend us on Facebook for the latest departure information.
