Why Pets Love Riding the Ferry


For years, animal lovers and their four-legged companions have enjoyed ferry rides. You may be curious why dogs would love breathing in open air, sighting the most unique birds (with a bark), rocking and relaxing Adirondack chairs and because of that, we’ve put a list of reasons together for you…  Here are some of the reasons why pets love riding the ferry as much as their owners!

1.) While on board they get to see their favorite whale and dolphin friends in the Delaware Bay. During the summer months, many whales and dolphins travel along the waters for furry passengers to see. And, to be clear, 2016 has been an AMAZING year for sighting whales!


2.) You pup can enjoy the 360 degree views of the bay from many vantage points from the wrap around deck. On later rides, you may even catch a stunning sunset.

3.) Before boarding the ferry, dogs of all shapes and sizes can play free miniature golf with their owners. We promote tail puts and nose puts.

4.) Your wonderful pup can meet other furry friends from around the world! People and their pets from all over the country use the ferry to travel, so you never know who you may get to meet. For those with puppy eyes, you won’t want to miss out.

5.) Finally they can ride for free with their owners! There is nothing like traveling with man’s best friend.*
