The Cape May Terminal is located at the west end of the Cape May Canal about 3.5 nautical miles (6.2 kilometers or 4 miles) west-northwest of Cape May Harbor on the Delaware Bay side of the Cape May peninsula.
The Delaware River and Bay Authority, a joint agency created by the States of Delaware and New Jersey, is responsible for operating and maintaining the Delaware Memorial Bridge Twin Span, the Cape May-Lewes Ferry, and five regional airports.
The Cape May-Lewes Ferry connects Cape May Harbor with historic Lewes in Delaware. The ferry operates five vessels based at the Cape May Terminal that move passengers and vehicles over the 14 nautical miles (27 kilometers or 17 miles) across the Delaware Bay every day of the year.
The Cape May Terminal has restrooms, maps, general information, and things for people to do while waiting for the ferry. There is a gift shop, a mini-golf course, and the Rock Pile Bar & Grill which is open weekends from mid-May and every day from mid-June through Labor Day. Visitors can also enjoy great views of the Bay from the Cape May Terminal.
