The Lewes Ferry


After we left Nag's Head, North Carolina, we drove up the DelMarVa peninsula to Lewes, Delaware. At Lewes, we drove our car onto a ferry that took us to Cape May.

How many ferries that transport cars exist in this country? A hundred? Two hundred? I'm not sure. But it was quite a treat.

We watched the ferry pull away from the shore and took some pictures on the deck. The boys ran down stairs to check out the video games and the snack shop. I sat at the tables and tried not to feel sea sick.

  1. We take the ferry from New London to Orient all the time when I want to travel on Friday after 10 am. (I refuse to drive to NY by highway after 10 am on a Friday because I loathe traffic.) It’s also nice when it’s just the kids, dog and me, because the dog gets a little exercise, and I can feed the kids from the snack bar.
    There are also car ferries from Bridgeport to Port Jeff (we never take that one) and to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket from the mainland.


  2. I’m not as familiar with the internal Washington state ferry system, but there are ferries from Port Angeles WA to Victoria BC, from Vancouver Island to the BC mainland, and lots of ferry coverage for the smaller Canadian islands between Vancouver Island and the BC mainland, although I know some of those routes mainly as a foot passenger.
