The weather is starting to warm up after a long and cold winter, and Delawareans everywhere are itching to get out on the water.

The Cape May-Lewes Ferry ride takes about 1.5 hours round trip, and the terminals host events and excursions. You can find their full event calendar right here. The Ferry runs 365 days a year, with very few cancellations only in the event of extreme weather. Right now, adult round-trip tickets cost just $18, and children ride for $9. Young kids (under 6) ride for free, and there are discounts for seniors and military. If you’re bringing your vehicle, expect to pay $72 round trip, which includes one driver’s ticket. Fares do change seasonally, so double check here before you head out to catch your ship.
