  • "Great introduction to the Eastern Shore"

    We loved the ferry ride over to Cape May. The views were beautiful. The ease of travel and comfort of the boat were excellent. The staff was friendly and the provisions for safety and security were exemplary. Accessible bathrooms were available and clean. Seating inside and out was plentiful as were food offerings for purchase.
