Birding from the Ferry
Enjoy a round-trip passage (walk-on only; no vehicles) aboard the Cape May Lewes Ferry.
Cruise across the Delaware Bay on a sea birding adventure from Cape May to Lewes DE in
search of pelagic birds like gannets, loons, jaegers, gulls, terns, and marine life.
Scanning will be from the outside deck; wind and weather can make the water a bit rough,
so if you are prone to motion sickness, please take precautions. Dress warmly and bring
rain gear - just in case.
Don't forget your binoculars and it's okay to bring a spotting scope on a tripod, but be
advised if the waters are rough.
The ferry is fully equipped with indoor seating, snack bar, and toilet facilities. Feel free
to bring your lunch or pick something from the snack bar (no restaurant on board).
Advance registration is required and cost is in addition to registration fee. Free parking.
Photo identification is required for all passengers before boarding the ferry.
