Due to anticipated high winds and rough Delaware Bay conditions related to the approaching hurricane, Cape May – Lewes Ferry (CMLF) officials announced late this afternoon that all vessel departures are canceled for the following dates: Friday, August 26; Saturday, August 27; and Sunday, August 28.
For the safety of the ferry vessels, CMLF marine personnel will be transporting them upriver tomorrow morning. The MV Twin Capes and MV Delaware will berth at the Port of Wilmington while the MV New Jersey and MV Cape Henlopen will moor at Holt Marine Terminal in Gloucester City, New Jersey.
Due to the uncertainty associated with the track of Hurricane Irene and the travel time associated with moving the vessels from the berthing facilities in Wilmington and Gloucester City to the CMLF Terminals, the departure schedule may also be affected on Monday, August 29. Travelers who plan to use the Cape May – Lewes Ferry are urged to call the CMLF reservations and information center at 800 64 FERRY (800.643.3779) or visit the CMLF online at www.cmlf.com for the latest departure information.
