NORTH CAPE MAY — Cape May-Lewes Ferry officials will implement pro-active social distancing measures at the terminal and on board the ferry vessels. 

Effective March 18 with the 7 a.m. departure from Cape May, boarding operations will be restricted to vehicles and their occupants only. All foot passenger travel is suspended.

In addition to the new boarding procedure, the ferry has discontinued all food service operations inside the ferry terminals and on-board the vessel. Restrooms will be open in the terminal prior to departures and restrooms are available on the vessels. Passengers who may have accessibility concerns aboard the vessel are asked to use facilitates inside the terminal prior to departure. 

During the trip, passengers are urged to remain inside their vehicles for the duration of the crossing. Should a passenger need to use the restroom facility, please take the stairs to the second deck where they’re located. Following use, we ask that passengers return to their vehicle.
