Tuckerton/Beach Haven Water Ferry
The trip across the bay takes approximately one leisurely, scenic hour and includes an eco-tour while in transit. The water ferry service is currently free of charge, however you can reserve your seat in advance for a nonrefundable $10 reservation fee.
The Tuckerton Seaport/Beach Haven Water Ferry is a 30 foot pontoon boat which unfortunately is not wheelchair accessible at this time. The boat does have a canopy and isinglass sides to protect guests from the elements. Safety always comes first. All guests 13 and under are required to wear life vests which will be provided in both adult and child sizes. Children must be over 2 years old to ride. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Pets of any kind are not permitted. The pontoon boat seats 28 passengers. Twenty of those seats are available for advanced reservation and the other eight will be first come, first seated.
If you miss the boat for the return trip or in the case of inclement weather, your return will be your responsibility. We suggest a local taxi or Uber to get back.
As they say aboard the Cape May Lewes Ferry, trade brake lights for bay sights! For updates and information on area attractions please visit https://lbiferry.com/blog/
