I went into the termal to get something to drink since we had over an hr wait. To be told that I couldn’t get a coffee because they were closed. Tried to go to the bar and was told we couldn’t get a drink there if we are not going to eat. It is 3 o’clock in the afternoon and you have a boat running. A lot of unhappy people walking out.

Response from Heath G, General Manager at Cape May-Lewes Ferry
Responded 2 weeks ago
TiffanyhJ513JQS, We apologize for the inconvenience. The restaurant inside the Lewes Terminal is not operated by the Cape May - Lewes Ferry, and the rules at the bar are per the Governor’s executive orders during the pandemic. I will, however, check to see why the coffee shop wasn’t open, as you were there during normal hours. Also, we have onboard the ferry a selection of hot and cold foods and beverages, though I understand your desire to have something while you waited, and will express this to the restaurant operator. Sincerely, Heath

This ferry helped our trip between NJ and Delaware - only 85minutes and nice ride with great view of light houses in Lewes, Delaware and Cape May, NJ.

I guess this is fun for the novelty, but it doesn’t save any time (and definitely not money) if you’re traveling beyond the immediate area of Lewes or Cape May. The ticket pricing is a bit weird, with the special rates (AAA, first responders) being exactly the same as the regular ones when booked online. Why bother to list them? It wasn’t really a bad experience but not worth going out of your way for.

An older gentleman working this afternoon in the parking lot could not have been any more rude and disrespectful. He did not give me clear directions what to do since I was the first car to be loaded on the ferry, so I pulled over to the side and he screamed at me. He also banged on my car window instead of being polite and requesting me to go directly to the boat in the northernmost lane. Shame on that old miserable grump.

11 Years traveling to Bethany area and this was our first time taking the Ferry. Easy reservation. Had to get there 30 minutes early. Trip by Ferry adds an hour overall, but weather was great, just sorry the kids didn't see any dolphins or whales. If you want a break from the highway..this is a great change.
