Due to mechanical issue on a ferry vessel, Cape May-Lewes Ferry (CMLF) officials announced this morning that the Ferry will not operate its first round trip today, Wednesday, February 25, 2015. Ice has accumulated in the vessel’s bow thruster causing it to malfunction. Both the 7:30 a.m. departure out of Cape May and the 9:15 a.m. out of Lewes were cancelled. Work crews are working to remedy the situation. Ferry officials will attempt to operate today’s remaining departures. Given the current conditions, additional departures may also be affected. Travelers who plan to use the Cape May – Lewes Ferry tomorrow are urged to call the Cape May – Lewes Ferry Guest Services Center at 800 64 FERRY (800.643.3779) before showing up.
